Have a look at the New Golf Rules below

Changes to the golfing rules are to help speed up play

Ready golf means thinking ahead and being ready to play

On the tee
No honours - hit when ready and when safe to do so
Shorter hitters hit first if longer hitters have to wait
Watch each others shot to avoid looking for balls
Carry an extra ball in case you need a provisional

On the fairway
No honours-hit when ready and when safe to do so
Go directly to your ball and get ready to play - don't wait until others have played
Play, then search. All players should hit and then help search.

On the green
Park your clubs between the green and next tee
Study your putt and repair pitchmarks while waiting for others to putt
Be ready to putt before it is your turn
First person to hole out replaces the flag
Mark Scores on the way to or on the next tee.

General Rules
Keep up with the group in front
If the group in front is on the fairway, you should be on the tee
Be ready to hit when the group in front moves to the next shot
Keep your pre-shot routine short, aim to play in 20 seconds
Limit practice swings and putts
If you are falling behind the group in front, let the group behind through.

New Golf Rules 2019

Search time ONLY 3 minutes

Ball moves during search, replace, no penalty

Embedded ball, free relief anywhere on course

Measuring drop, use longest club only

Drop from knee height only, if you drop from other height in error, drop again without penalty

Standing on wrong green not allowed

Ball accidentally hits other player or equipment, no penalty

Double hit with club or putter, no penalty

Touching sand in bunker incidentally, no penalty

Water hazards now called penalty areas

Touching ground in penalty areas, no penalty

Ball moves on the green after being marked, replace, no penalty

Ball accidentally moved on the green, replace, no penalty

All damage to green can now be repaired even if in putting line

Positioning your club on the ground for alignment is not permitted

Loose impediments can be removed anywhere on the course including penalty areas-(hazards)

Dropping a ball out of a bunker, 2 shot penalty

Putting allowed when flag is in the hole, out of the hole or attended

Ball wedged between flag stick and side of hole is deemed as holed.
