19th Hole: CGA Seminars Teaching the Rules
It’s that time of year again. Time to learn the rules of the game we all love to play.
There are those who would say that golf is the greatest game ever invented. There are those who would argue that point, of course, but no one would suggest that golf would be a great game without the rules that govern play.
Recognizing that, the bodies that rule golf do everything they can to promote the study of those rules. In that vein, the Carolinas Golf Association has announced the schedule for its annual series of USGA Rules of Golf seminars.
This year’s series will be the 37th year the CGA has served the Carolinas with Rules of Golf education and annual rules presentations.
The scheduled 12 seminars are free of charge to attendees, who will view a narrated computer presentation on the basics of the Rules of Golf followed by question and answer sessions.
Seminars typically last between 1½ to 2 hours. A free 2012-15 USGA Rules of Golf book will be distributed to all participants, and information on the Carolinas Golf Association will be available.
Seminars are open to golfers of all ages and abilities, including members of CGA member clubs, golf professionals, college and high school golf teams, and the general public. Carolinas PGA members receive “general category” education credits for attending a seminar.
Seminar attendees are encouraged to preregister online at www.carolinasgolf.org.
For further information, contact the CGA, PO Box 319, West End, NC 27376; phone (910) 673-1000; or email email@example.com.
