The Royal and Ancient Rules of Golf

As the SOS Golf Tour is ultimately governed by the superior body governing world golf, we have added a link to the Royal and Ancient Rules of Golf website. These rules are taken from the latest Royal and Ancient Rules book and can be found on: http://www.randa.org/

Golf’s new Rules have been published by The R&A and the USGA ahead of coming into effect on 1 January 2019. Get familiar with the changes to make sure you are Rules Ready for next year.

How SOS use those rules

There are a set of rules governing SOS and how we play each round. These can be found under the about us page, but for the most part we follow these rules.

We have golf fines to keep things interesting and a handicap management system to keep things fair.

Our scoring system is based loosely on the system put in place by the PGA Tour for the FedEx Cup. The system has been adapted to suit shorter seasons with less rounds.
