Looking to keep your game in shape at home? Brush up on your Rules of Golf knowledge? Have some fun with your family? In these challenging times of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are keeping golfers and non-golfers active and engaged with our #GolfAtHome campaign.
Through creative content – covering fitness, nutrition, Rules, tips and trick shots – the social media campaign is designed to help keep golfers lovers active, informed and amused!
R&A ambassador Georgia Hall and golf broadcaster Iona Stephen are among those supporting our activity, while beginners, club golfers, top amateurs and leading professionals have been sharing videos and photos of their #GolfAtHome activity – from chip shots in the garden to putts across the house!
Keen to get involved in #GolfAtHome? All you have to do is tag The R&A on Twitter or Instagram and use the hashtag #GolfAtHome so we can share your content!

Rules at Home Resources
There has perhaps never been a better time to brush up on the Rules of Golf – irrespective of what level of golfer you are.
As part of our #GolfAtHome activity to engage golfers, you could take the opportunity to achieve a sound knowledge of the regulations that govern the playing of the sport.
Taking the time to understand the basics of the Rules will allow you to deal with situations you most regularly encounter on the course – and may even save you a few key shots!
Rules site and Rules Academy
The comprehensive Rules section of our website offers a great way to stay engaged with golf and benefit your overall game. You can view the Official Rules of Golf, download the Rules of Golf App, read up on Rules Essentials and much more.
A key area is our Rules Academy, a free online resource for golfers of all levels and experience which provides an interesting and easy way to learn the basics of the Rules of Golf, culminating in an optional Level 1 Exam.
Using diagrams, illustrations and videos, you can understand and test yourself with the most commonly occurring Rules – and there is an official certificate for passing the exam.
