The R&A’s Official Rules of Golf App for the iPhone and iPad offers you the complete package, covering every issue that can arise during a round of golf. The App includes nearly 30 diagrams and how-to videos that help to explain the Rules effective from 2019 and give guidance for many common situations.
Other features include:
• Improved Search Functionality
• A Visual Search - to help you quickly find the Rule you need
• Rules of Golf Quiz
• A Rules Essentials section (will follow later in 2018 to help you learn the basics).
This is an essential App that every golfer needs to ensure they are up to date and ready to play by the Rules in 2019.

The App also includes the Interpretations on the Rules of Golf and Committee Procedures – both essential for Committees and Referees running competitions from 2019.

What’s New

Version 1.3.6

- We’ve added a new section which includes a set of 10 videos to help Junior Golfers (and golfers who are young at heart) learn the Rules of Golf. This is currently available in English only.
- We've also fixed a crash that was occurring.

Doesn't open at first takes 5 mins

Did anybody test this software before rolling it out?
When trying to read the information about the new rules the pause or play icon ▶️ covers the text so you can't read the information!!!

Information presented is easy to read

I highly recommend having the app handy, as opposed to the hard copy of the books.
There are a few bugs, but these are getting sorted as they crop up.

I have found the R&A app to be an essential reference tool both on and off the course, easy to use and far more convenient than a hard copy book that sits in my golf bag. I would highly recommend it to all golfers.
