A Short Course on the Rules

Check out our new, regular content series called A Short Course on the Rules!


"A Short Course on the Rules" is a convenient, new way to dive into and learn more about select Rules topics! It is designed to have something for players at all levels of Rules knowledge. Each piece in the Short Course series will focus on a specific topic and provide:

  • Video - A video overview from one of our Rules experts focusing on foundational Rules knowledge for that round's topic.
  • Quiz - "Play" our 18-hole Rules quiz to test your knowledge - questions get more challenging as you turn from the "Front Nine" questions (covering more foundational topics and perfect for those with beginner/intermediate level Rules knowledge) to the "Back Nine" questions (more advanced questions that are perfect for experts and those seeking to learn more).
  • Leaderboard - The quiz will be open for a set period of time and, once entries have closed, we will post a leaderboard highlighting both the top scorers as well as those with a perfect score on the front nine.
  • Season Leaderboard - Season 1 of the Short Course will include 6 rounds, and we will maintain a cumulative leaderboard across all 6 rounds with prizes to be awarded at the end!
  • "Thoughts on the Round" - Additional insights and explanations on the round that are based around the front and back nine quiz questions.
  • Resources - Links to other helpful resources on the topic.
