USGA Rules of Golf

The USGA provides players of all levels numerous resources to learn the Rules of Golf.  We ask that you visit their site and watch the video’s or there is access to the Rules of Golf and Decisions links on the site also.  You can also download the USGA Rules of Golf app on your phone for instant access.

The USGA writes and maintains the Rules of Amateur Status along with the R&A Rules Limited. An amateur golfer, whether he plays competitively or recreationally, is one who plays golf for the challenge it presents, not as a profession and not for financial gain.

Knowing your Amateur Status

Periodically the MGA schedules Rules of Golf Seminars that anyone can attend. The announcement is made by broadcast emails to our members.
