January 2019 rule change notice


All golfers need to be aware that beginning January 2019 they will be playing with over 50 new rules and each golfer will be expected to know these rule changes. According to Al Bolty, Rules Chairman for the MPMGA, this will be the biggest makeover of the USGA Rule Book in many years and will require all of us to have a solid understanding of these new rules beginning January 1.

We are in luck. Arrangements have been made for a representative of the Arizona Golf Association to be at our MountainView Clubhouse on October 22 for a seminar on these 2019 rules updates and changes. The program will be held at 2:00 p.m. in the Ballroom.

Robin Farran, a PGA rules expert and presenter, will again put on the program here. If you have heard him present before you know how knowledgeable and entertaining he is. All golfers and anyone interested in golf are encouraged to attend this free program. Mark your calendar and bring your golf buddies.
