Rules of Golf

An essential role of the USGA is to write and interpret the Rules of Golf. The MGA is a resource for golfers to learn and play by the rules. Keeping that in mind, the MGA conducts workshops on the Rules, typically each Spring.  Once the workshop schedule is created for 2018, it will be published here.  Due to the upcoming release of the "Modernized Rules" for the 2019 season, there will be a limited schedule of workshops for the current Rules.  There will be an extensive schedule of programs in 2019.
