IGA Rules of Golf Seminars
If Tiger would have gone to an IGA Rules of Golf Seminar, he would have known not to
take relief for an embedded ball in a sandy area. Instead, he got a two-stroke penalty and missed the cut in Dubai.

The Iowa Golf Association is once again holding seminars educating individuals on the Rules of Golf this spring. There are three scheduled around the state and each seminar will feature the same topics, focusing on the most common and applicable rules.
Bent Tree Golf Club in Council Bluffs will be the site of the first seminar on March 30th. Pleasant Valley Golf Course in Iowa City will host on April 6th and The Briarwood Club of Ankeny will be the site on April 13th. All seminars are on Saturdays.
These seminars are free to attendees and each person will receive a new 2012-15 Rules of Golf book. Decisions on the Rules of Golf books should also be available for purchase at a discounted rate. Each seminar is open to anyone who would like to learn a little more about the rules of golf and high school golfers and coaches are specifically encouraged to attend. The seminars will begin at 9:00 am and last until approximately noon, depending on questions.
To sign up for any of these seminars call the office at (888) 388-4442 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are a high school coach, please indicate how many players will be attending with you.
