The Farms Country Club in Wallingford hosted the bi-annual two-day CSGA Rules of Golf Workshop on Saturday and Sunday, March 8 and 9. A large turnout of golf enthusiasts from around the state, including representatives from the Connecticut Women’s Golf Association, the Southern New England Women’s Golf Association, The PGA Connecticut Section, as well as new and veteran CSGA volunteers gathered to improve their knowledge of the Rules of Golf.
CSGA Director of Operations, Ryan Hoffman, and CSGA Director of Competitions and Communications, Brent Paladino shared duties as instructors for the program. The pair covered the Definitions, and Rules 1-28 and Rules 33 and 34 using slides, videos and detailed explanations followed by question and answer sessions.
Among the PGA professionals in attendance, The Farms host head professional, Jim Hanlon was enthusiastic in his praise for the workshop. “This was really a great two days,” said Hanlon, “it’s such important information for a golf professional to know, and Ryan and Brent did a great job with the presentation.”
To test their knowledge, participants were given the option of taking a 50-question test following the Rules Workshop. Individuals who attained a score of 80 or above qualified to serve as Rules Officials in CSGA championships.
