In addition to publishing the Rules of Golf, Golf Canada is committed to training and educating all golfers on the Rules. With the introduction of the Modernized Rules in 2019, Golf Canada adopted the R&A’s Rules Education program, consisting of three-tiers. Level 1 is the introductory level, with separate programming available for those interested in becoming certified at the Provincial and National levels.
