  • The Rules of Golf Workshops will return in 2024, and be made available to the public. See below for dates/times/registration.
  • These workshops are 3-day seminars in which participants will receive a comprehensive education on the Rules of Golf. It is an ideal opportunity for golf professionals or for individuals interested in becoming volunteer rules officials. Upon completion of the workshop, all participants will have the option to take the USGA 80 Question Exam and receive Advanced Certification in the Rules of Golf from the USGA.

UGA Member Club Seminars

  • Did you know that the UGA offers 1 or 2 hour Rules of Golf seminars to its member clubs free of charge? The seminars are great for opening day banquets or junior days at your club. If you would like the UGA to visit your club to conduct an interactive presentation on the Rules of Golf at your club please contact Director of Championships & Golf Operations, Colin Clawson at (801)563-0400 or at [email protected].
  • Seminars can be given Mondays – Saturdays. Dates are dependent upon staff scheduling. We do ask that the club have at least 10 attendees for the seminar.
