Notes:
1. Program runs each Thursday night for 7 consecutive weeks. The first session (Week 1) is
Thursday, January 13. All sessions start at 7:30 NST. Each session lasts about 2 hours and 15
minutes including a fifteen-minute break.
2. Program accommodates two types of participants. Active participants (a total of four) and
auditors. Active participants are pre-identified. They intend to write the next Provincial Rules
Exam. Auditors are interested in writing the Provincial or National exam at some point in the
future.
3. Active participants require a noise-canceling computer headset with microphone. Auditors
should also have such a headset. Otherwise, you may be restricted to asking questions using the
“Chat” features of Zoom.
4. Beginning in Week 2, participants will be asked some practice problems of the type that appear
on rules exams. These are Closed Book T/F, Closed Book M/C, Open Book M/C and Holes of
Golf problems. Only Active Participants will be responding to these problems online. But answers
will be provided for every participant. Closed book questions are based on a definition, rule or
interpretation. Open Book problems, including holes of golf, are based on specific
rules/interpretations.
5. The schedule listed at the top is intended as a guide only. It may require adjustment. But, if the
powerpoint slides for any rule are not finished during a session, participants are expected to
review that rule on their own time. In addition, rules 21-24 will not be covered. However, for exam
purposes, you should read those on your own.

Equipment Needed:
1. A 2019 Official Guide to the Rules of Golf (Guidebook). Available at nominal cost from GOLF NL
Executive Director Greg Hillier (golf@sportnl.ca) or from Golf Canada via their web site.
2. Computer with internet access. Preferably high-speed internet access. Tablets or smartphones
may also work. Computer is best. Zoom runs from an “app” when you click on the URL we
provide in an email. If you haven’t used Zoom before, when joining the first session you may be
asked if you want to download the app. Say yes.
3. A noise-canceling computer headset with microphone is best. Generally, Zoom handles audio
fairly well. But some built-in computer microphones provide feedback and can be a distraction.
So, a headset is mandatory for active participants. USB corded versions cost $30-$60; wireless
headsets are more expensive. Many “gaming” headsets should work including those that plug
into the speaker/microphone jacks or the single combined speaker/mic jack on the computer.

In the meantime, if you have any questions do not hesitate to call our office at 631-3102 or e-mail golf@sportnl.ca.
