Rules Education

Rules of Golf Education

One of the duties of the Nebraska Golf Association, as an Allied Golf Association of the USGA, is to educate golfers on the Rules of Golf. With the new Rules of Golf that went into effect on January 1, 2019, the NGA has educational opportunities available to all key segments, including member clubs, high school and college golf teams, allied associations, tournament players, volunteers, as well as the general golfer. Below is a list of our current offerings. If you can't find anything to fit your needs, or if you have questions, please contact NGA Assistant Executive Director Justin Ahrens at (402) 505-4653 ext. 104 or jahrens@nebgolf.org.
