Equipment Search

The Equipment Search function allows you to search for any club or ball by equipment type, manufacturer, model and specification. There are thousands of clubs and balls in our databases, so you should be able to locate yours to find out whether it conforms to the Rules of Golf.

When using this search function, close attention should be paid to the "Identification Markings". These are a detailed description of the markings on each item listed and this information can be used to identify the product in question, as distinguishable from another.

If you have a query regarding the conformance status of any club, please contact The R&A for assistance.
