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
