It's OK Rules!

INTRODUCTION

The "It's OK to Play" practices were designed to provide guiltless ways to make golf more fun while learning.  While the Rules of Golf are important, they apply to keeping score and competition. When you are learning the game or just out to have some fun, it's OK to use these practices as an enjoyable way to play and have fun.

The "It's OK to Play" practices were introduced at the GOLF 20/20 Forum in May, 2011 in conjunction with the World Golf Hall of Fame Induction ceremony in St. Augustine, FL.

 BACKGROUND DETAILS

  • The "It's OK to Play" practices are a list of 18 ways to make golf more fun while learning and to help overcome the intimidation that may come with knowing all the rules.
  • The "It's OK to Play" list was put in writing to confirm to all who are learning golf, the message that it is OK to bend a few rules while learning.
  • The list was prepared in consultation with Rand Jerris, Senior Managing Director, Public Services, USGA.
  • USGA supports the "It's OK to Play" practices as another effort to get more people and families out on the courses and having fun with golf.
  • Steps are being taken to ensure widespread adoption of these practices to golf courses and facilities across the nation.

Some "It's Okay" hints include:

  • It's okay to start each hole from the shortest tees, or make up your own length. It's okay to start at the 150 yard marker if you like.
  • It's okay to make the ball easier to hit by rolling it around and setting it up on a little tuft of grass...in fact, it's okay to 'tee the ball up' ANYWHERE when you are first learning to play.
  • It's okay to throw the ball out of a bunker if you try to hit it but miss - we recommend giving at least one try, but it's okay to do what you like. Be sure to rake your footprints, too.
  • It's okay to move your ball away from trees, rocks or very hilly lies. It's okay to give yourself a better lie and an easier shot.
  • It's okay to play any number of holes and call it a round of golf. You can play 3-holes, 6-holes, 9-holes, 12-holes, etc.
