State Level Rules Accreditation Officials
Points System to Maintain State level Accreditation
The system for maintaining State Level Accreditation is based on accrual of a minimum of 400 points (or pro rata if newly accredited) attained over the four year period.
The four year period is in conjunction with the issue of new Rules of Golf Books (e.g. 2008-11, 2012-15 etc.)
Attendance at a seminar/discussion bi-annually in the first part of each year when the revised Rules and/or Decisions are published is mandatory to maintain accreditation.
Points will be allocated as per criteria (See document below) and at the discretion of the Committee for any Rules related matters not covered.
One session equals four hours of Rules Duty (or one 18 hole round)
|Description of session||Points allocated per session|
|Mandatory attendance at bi-annual Decisions & Rules revision seminar/discussion||50|
|Attendance at National & State Championships Aust Opens, NSW Opens & National Selection trials||25|
|Metropolitan Pennants & District Championships Vardon events (NSWGA) & Jean Derrin events (WGNSW)||20|
|Other random events such as Club Championships, Masters Games, Pro-Ams, major club events, etc will be evaluated at the discretion of the committee||15|
|Other Rules related activities such as attending/conducting Rules instruction sessions etc will be evaluated at the discretion of the committee||15|
If the State Level Rules Accreditation of a person lapses the person will be expected to pass an exam to regain accreditation – the Committee may review this procedure in exceptional circumstances.
