About Clarifications
Clarifications are provided only for aspects of the Rules that are considered to require additional clarification. However, the vast majority of questions that arise on the course will be answerable solely by reference to the Rules of Golf and so it is recommended that a thorough review of the relevant Rule is undertaken before referring to the Clarifications for guidance. Please see the document providing additional clarifications of the 2023 Rules of Golf here.
