Welcome to the NHWGA,
Spring is around the corner and that means golf will soon start for us in the North. The NHWGA realizes that as much fun as golf is, it can also be intimidating and frustrating when it comes to understanding the rules.
Below is the USGA’s (United State Golf Association’s) web address where you can find all the rules, decisions, many helpful videos and rules quizzes. Please utilize it to help in your enjoyment of the game.
Some suggestions for players to ‘study’ are:
- Rule 1, The Game
- Rule 3, Stroke Play
- Rule 6, The Player
- Rule 8, Advice; Indicating Line of Play
- Rule 13, Play Ball as it Lies
- Rule 23, Loose Impediments
- Rule 24, Obstructions
- Rule 25, Abnormal Ground Conditions, Embedded Ball and Wrong Putting Green
- Rule 26, Water Hazards
- Rule 27, Ball Lost or Out of Bounds; Provisional Ball
- Rule 28, Ball Unplayable
Please contact us at www.nhwga.org or call 603-356-9051with any questions you may have or to schedule a rules clinic at your club. Check back often as we will continue to update information on the rules. We look forward to seeing you on the links this year.
Happy golfing,Cindy Whitcher
