- hosted by the Golf Manitoba Rules Committee -
Would you like to learn about the Rules of Golf? Golf Manitoba is once again offering Winter Rules Sessions for those who want to learn more. No prior knowledge is required, just come and learn in a relaxed setting with those of a similar interest. The sessions are from 7:00 p.m. to approximately 9:00 p.m. Public welcome!
Please email the Golf Manitoba office at firstname.lastname@example.org to rsvp your attendance. The sessions are free for all that attend.
There will be a slight change to the format this year with approximately 1/3 of the time being spent on a rules presentation, 1/3 of the time on working through actual golf hole scenarios to see how rules apply in certain situations and the remaining 1/3 of the time answering any questions that are asked by the attendees verbally or in writing.
These will be “no pressure” seminars and attendees can participate as much as they want or they can sit back and just listen.
Since 2003, Golf Manitoba and Golf Canada have been providing member clubs with educational sessions relating to the handicap system. To date, approximately four hundred participants have attended these seminars.
Golf Manitoba will be offering another Handicap Education Seminar on Saturday April 29th at the Breezy Bend Country Club from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm.
The seminar is being offered as part of the copyright agreement between Golf Canada and the United States Golf Association (USGA) to try and maintain a consistent manner in which the handicap system is utilized. Each member club is required to have at least one person participate in the seminar. Golf Manitoba would encourage clubs to consider both volunteers and staff to attend. These people will then become resources at the club level for all handicap inquiries. If you have already had someone attend, we would also encourage you to send others.
A minimal cost of $15.00 per person will be charged.
Please RSVP your attendance at 204-925-5730 or email@example.com.
As part of your Golf Manitoba membership, we would be happy to set up a rules session at any Golf Manitoba member club. For further details, please call Director of Competitions, Lisa Andersen at 204-291-8030.
