2014 Seminar & Rules Night’s Schedule is now available

2014 Seminar and Rules Night's Schedule is now available. Seminars will commence from May 2014. Online registrations are now open.

2014 Club Level – National Club Level Rules Accreditation Courses conducted by Golf NSW

The Golf NSW Rules of Golf Accreditation Course is designed for those men and women who wish to improve their knowledge of the Rules of Golf and if they wish, sit for Club Level Accreditation. An optional online examination is available to golfers who can sit the exam at their leisure. This has allowed us to run more seminars/sessions as we do not have to return to venues to conduct exams. We have now further streamlined the process to get Rules information out to more and more golfers.

"Update on new format"


  • Rather than conduct seminars for three hours or longer, they will be streamlined to approximately two hours. Commencement will be at 6.30p.m. (unless otherwise specified) – please allow time to arrive and be ready to start at this time.
  • Registration for seminars is requested prior to the event to assist in administration and determining numbers. No fee is required to attend the seminars – click button below to go to registration (see below).
  • All who register and provide their email address will receive the quarterly National Rules of Golf eNewsletter.
  • Please see below for additional study resources and free electronic version of the Study Guide for the course (recommended material).


  • Exams are totally optional and registration for exams is separate to the seminars.
  • Those wishing to sit the National Club Level Accreditation Exam can register online at any time for a $10 fee and will soon after receive details of how to access and sit the examination (online).
  • The exam is 50 multiple choice questions on the Rules of Golf (3 hours allowed – in one sitting only).
  • To pass the exam a minimum of 35 correct answers must be achieved. Use of the Rules of Golf Book 2012-2015 is permitted.
  • To be invited to sit State Level Accreditation, currently a pass of 46 or better must be achieved in this Club Level exam.
  • Successful Club Level candidates will receive a Certificate of Achievement, Golf Australia Club Level Referee Cap and regular Rules Accreditation eNewsletters.
  • Club Level Accreditation will allow your services to be utilised at Club and DGA level events.
  • Those who pass will also be shown on our listing of accredited Rules Officials. For others this includes one free extra attempt at the examination should you fail to pass the first time (contact Golf NSW for a new access code and password to allow a second attempt).

Note: Although the seminars are an important learning forum for people interested in understanding and applying the Rules of Golf, it is virtually impossible to cover all aspects of the Rules in such a short time. Therefore, it is recommended that all participants familiarise themselves with the format of the current Rules Book prior to attendance.
