The members of our committee are hoping to give you a greater understanding of the Rules of Golf and how they can help you. The following ladies will always be happy to answer (or find the answer) to any rules question:
Pat Davis - Nancy Gross - LaVern Hendricks - Gail Kidd - Linda Roberts and Stevie Lamar.
These committee members are all long-standing members of the WGC. Four of them are Past Presidents of our club and all of them are dedicated golfers with many years in the game. That being said, none of us are experts on the Rules of Golf. So, we may frequently have to respond to your question with "I don't know" and "I will find out". Each of us is committed to avoidance of misinformation - that no answer is better than the wrong answer.
Our primary goal is that each of you will come to understand that the Rules are a tool to assist the player, not a weapon of punishment. We want to do all we can to add to your enjoyment of this wonderful game, and to maintain the "Spirit of the Game".
Each month, in this space on the website, we will attempt to clarify a particular Rule or situation that might arise in the course of play. We will begin doing so in March; for now, we are just trying to give an oversight of our goals.
We are planning our annual Rules Workshop for March 21st at the Metfield Clubhouse at 8:30am. We have a surprise in store for you in the form of one generous door prize - so we hope to see a whole bunch of you there!
Please do not hesitate to contact any of us (the Rules Committee) with suggestions, questions, or comments.
Stevie Lamar - Chairperson
