The Rules of Golf have had a significant update, and if you want to make sure you don't come a cropper while out on the course, here's where you can pick up a copy of your own

Whether you’re a tour pro vying for millions or a club hacker trying to get their name on the board, staying on top of golf’s rules is enough to make anyone sweat.

And while our level-3 qualified expert Steve Carroll will keep you on top of everything you need to know, having your own copy of the Official Guide to the Rules of Golf will very much come in handy.

Otherwise known as the “Bible of golf rules”, the 2023 edition is fully updated to include amendments that come into play from January 1 next year.

The first section of the book contains the Rules of Golf with Clarifications, including additional explanations and, in many cases, examples to help you understand more complex scenarios.

The second section, Committee Procedures, features guidance for those involved in running the day to day at clubs, or running competitions at all levels.

So what are you waiting for?
