Hong Kong: More than 35 people attended the latest R&A Level One School on the Rules of Golf, hosted by the Hong Kong Golf Association (HKGA) at the Hong Kong Golf Club in Fanling. A total of 21 took the R&A Level One Exam and 90% passed.
Prior to the exam, talks were given by R&A-designated Chief Instructors, Dr Brian Choa and Candi-Anna Chan.
Several qualified Rules Officials were also on hand to host on-course sessions involving four different stations: through the green, the teeing ground, bunkers and the putting green.
“This year’s R&A Rules School was very well received and the candidates were full of enthusiasm, as ever,” said Choa, Chairman of the HKGA’s Rules Committee.
“Promoting the Rules of Golf and giving Hong Kong people the opportunity to become a qualified Rules Official is a responsibility that the HKGA takes very seriously.”
