What Resources are for me?

This section gives guidance on the information you should focus on either as a golfer, a Committee member or a Referee.

Online versions of the rules:


The Player’s Edition of the Rules of Golf is the publication written for you the golfer. Although its text is edited, it gives you the same answer that is in the full Rules of Golf and so it is a functioning Rule book. Diagrams and videos are also included to help you learn and understand the Rules.

The R&A website and App also contain many helpful videos and a visual search function which is designed to help you find the Rules for the most common situations more quickly.
