PGA / USGA Rules of Golf Workshops

Since 1975, the United States Golf Association and The PGA of America, working together to support the best interests of the game, have offered to the public a series of workshops on the Rules of Golf. These workshops are open to the public and bring together several of the foremost Rules of Golf educators in the game, with the goal of making the Rules accessible to anyone who wishes to learn more about them or sharpen their existing knowledge.

With major changes to the Rules of Golf taking effect on January 1, 2019, the USGA and PGA will offer an expanded schedule of 35 workshops.  They will take place in the Fall of 2018 between September 5, and December 5, 2018 and in the Winter of 2019 between January 3 and April 1, 2019. PGA of America members will earn 24 PGA education credits for attendance in full at any of these workshops.
