You’ll have some new Rules Of Golf to discuss and challenge your golf buddies both on the course and in the 19th hole this season. Penalty areas, loose impediments, defined relief area, ball drop, and more. All are attemps by Golf Canada, the United States Golf Association and the Royal & Ancient to modernize and simplify some rules, and pick up the pace of play. The new rules came into effect January 1, 2019. You can pick up a copy of the new rules at your local pro shop, or view them on Golf Canada’s website, www.golfcanada.ca/rules.
