The Rookie Tour





All players wishing to enter must fully complete and send in the relevant RookieTour or RookieYIGS entry form plus the RookieTour code of conduct form and the RookieTour Health & Safety Consent form. A player may only enter nine events in advance.
RookieTour for U14 boys and girls (no older than 13 on the 31st December 2018) with a handicap of 36 or better that is held and maintained at a Surrey Golf Club.


RookieYIGS for U13 boys and girls (no older than 12 on the 31st December 2018) who don't have a handicap or have a club handicap of 37-54. YIGS don't have to be members of a golf club but must be able to complete 9 holes on a par 3 course without assistance.







Any player intending to enter RookieTour events in 2019 we are holding rules presentations on the new rules of golf, the presentation sessions last for around 1 hour and are open to those who have already played on the Tour and those of you who are intending to for the first time, all are welcome, including parents.


I am sure you are aware of the significant changes to the Rules of Golf that came into force on 1st January 2019. I am sure you are also aware that all golfing competitions run by Surrey Golf, including the RookieTour and YIGS competitions, are run in accordance with the Rules of Golf, and we will be applying the new rules in all our competitions.


To ensure that all RookieTour players are aware of these major rule changes we are running a Rules Presentation Workshop for all our RookieTour and YIGs players.


The Rules Presentation will take place on Sunday 10th March at The Drift Golf Club, The Drift, East Horsley, Surrey, KT24 5HD.


We will be holding four sessions over the day; 10am, 12pm, 3pm and 5pm – You only need to attend one session!!


Adults who are accompanying children are also welcome to attend these sessions, although priority will always be given to the junior players.

The presenters are both qualified referees, who work with the RookieTour at our events.


We believe it is essential that you attend one of these sessions so that you are aware of the rule changes ahead of the golfing season. We know that you do not want your four hour stroll around a golf course ruined by penalty strokes, penalty points, or worse, disqualification – particularly if you have played exceptionally well on the day – due to a rules infringement that attendance at this Rules Presentation could have prevented.


To book onto one of these sessions you must apply by email to the   RookieTour    stating the players name,
the names of any accompanying adults who want to attend the presentation, and the time of your preferred session (it would be helpful if you could offer an alternative time as we expect these sessions to fill up very quickly).
