New Rules of Golf Advice – Effect on WHS Handicapping

The new Rules of Golf came into effect on 1st January 2019 and The R&A / USGA produced an Official Guide to the Rules of Golf containing the “Committee Procedures” which gives detailed advice to committees as regards the new rules.

Within the Committee Procedures there are certain aspects, particularly in competition play, where clubs may need guidance from their National Union and in particular from their Area Authority.

On certain occasions there will be an obligation to contact their handicapping authority; on others it will merely be a recommendation.

These procedures were updated in November 2020 and you read them below:
