2022 NCGA Rules of Golf Seminars

List of Seminars with Instructors

Seminar Format:

In this 2.5 day in-person seminar, we will review key elements of the Rules of Golf and its Interpretations. The first 2 days are lecture, from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, with supporting images, videos and animations. The morning of the 3rd day will be an optional exam from 8:00-11:30 am, followed by a review – which is a great learning tool, so plan to stay until 1:30 pm if you can.
