England Golf will be running a County Rules Schools next month, at Wellingborough Golf Club in Northamptonshire. This is the only County Rules School planned for 2013 so it is likely that places will fill up quickly.

Since 2011, there have been eleven England Golf County Rules Schools run across the country, all proving to be very popular and attracting over 300 delegates in total.

Toby Thorne, England Golf Championship Manager says, “I am delighted to announce that we are able to run a County Rules School this year. There is clearly demand for a co-ordinated Rules education program with a qualification that is recognised nationally, and I am pleased that we can meet this demand by running another County Rules School. Wellingborough Golf Club is an ideal venue and an accessible location, particularly for the east midlands where England Golf Rules Schools will be coming to for the first time. I am hopeful that the Northamptonshire Golf Union and Ladies' County Golf Association will also benefit with a broader pool of qualified people to help offer their skills at county championships and tournaments.”

The format of the school, with a mix of outdoor practical demonstrations, refereeing role-play scenarios and some indoor tutorials, keeps everyone interested and on their toes throughout the day. Delegates should have at least a basic understanding of the Rules of Golf before attending the School, although advice will be given on how to prepare for the exam which is several weeks after the first day of practical tuition.

The details for the event are as follows:

Day 1: Mon 7th October Day 2 (inc. Exam): Mon 18th November
Entry deadline: Mon 30th September Venue: Wellingborough Golf Club, Northamptonshire

The fee for attending an England Golf County Rules School is £50, which includes all tuition, lunches, teas and coffees on both days. Although hosted in Northamptonshire, delegates from other counties will also be welcome.
