Golf’s international governing bodies are the R&A and the United States Golf Association.  They, in consultation with Golf Australia, are working on two major initiatives that will directly impact all Australian golfers – a modernisation of the Rules of Golf, and a World Handicap System.

The R&A and USGA are conducting internet surveys on these two subjects.  The two internet surveys are available from www.golf.org.au/have-your-say.  Each survey can be completed in about 10 minutes.  In addition, a pop-up message promoting these surveys will be presented to all users of the Golf Australia website (www.golf.org.au) for a two-week period commencing Monday 24 July.
