The R&A’s Official Rules App for the iPhone and iPad offers you the complete package, covering every issue that can arise in a round of golf. From on-course behaviour, through a summary of the fundamental Rules, to the complete Rules of Golf (effective January 2016), you’ll soon find the answer you’re looking for.

The Quick Guide to the Rules will make sure that you know what to do if you find yourself in any of the most frequently-occurring Rules scenarios. Designed for quick and easy reference, the Guide is fully illustrated and contains numerous images, diagrams and video footage.

You’ll also find a guide to the essential Etiquette of the game, in which two-time Open Champion Padraig Harrington explains the rights and wrongs relating to pace of play, care of the course, and consideration for other golf course users.

Should you need more detail, the complete Rules of Golf (effective January 2016), will cover every eventuality, and once you’ve become an expert, you can test yourself with an interactive Rules quiz.

You might just save a couple of strokes…

Few bugs to iron out: ironed out!

Great idea and good start but seems to have a few bugs: videos don't start and quiz finishes then crashes without giving the answers. Will be great when these are fixed.

Seems to work really well on iPad.

When can we expect update for 2012 changes?

Perfect application, however, now already more than month out of the date... When can we expect update?
