2021 WORKSHOPS OVERVIEW
:

For the 2021 season, PGA/USGA Rules of Golf Workshops will be held virtually during the traditional time of January through March. While we explored in-person options, we were unable to commit to doing so safely given the number of uncertainties surrounding COVID-19.

Additionally, we will offer two workshop options in 2021 - one will be a virtual version of our traditional PGA/USGA Rules of Golf Workshops, and the other will be a new introductory-level workshop. More info on the two options below.

PGA/USGA Rules WorkshopsThe virtual PGA/USGA Workshops will include a reimagined workshop experience as well as the opportunity to take the 80 and/or 100 question exams. Registration is now open and the fee is $375. Below are the components of the virtual workshop:

  • Access to on-demand recorded Rules presentations covering the full breadth of curriculum in a PGA/USGA Rules Workshop. Access will start at registration and run through the end of March.
  • Ability to choose a specific active program week, which will include:
    • Daily 1.5 hour webinars with your PGA of America and USGA instructors
    • A dedicated email address with 24-hour (or faster) responses to questions during your active program week
    • A Facebook group community page to interact with your program members and instructors (optional to participate in the group)
  • NEW! Access to "Night School," which will be a series of live twice-weekly webinars covering the full breadth of a PGA/USGA Rules Workshop from beginning to end.
