Greenacres annually runs a Referees Course for our Members and is usually held in the latter part of the year. We are very fortunate to have Chris Webb in our Club who is a National Referee who does these Courses for us. His phone number is (03) 5423950 and email is He is very happy to answer any questions you may have on the rules. Golf NZ now have an extensive area on the Rules of Golf for you to peruse.

Note of Interest.

Read the Local Rules for each club you play at.  For example at G’acres on No. 17 our local rule re a ball striking the power lines requires the shot to be replayed. However, at Motueka on No. 2 a post and overhead cables by the clubhouse can affect play. At present there’s no local Rule covering them so your ball must be played as it lies.  Never assume. Happy Golfing.
