The Oswald Academy conducts week-long workshops about the Rules of Golf in recorded versions – get access immediately.
Level 2 and Level 3.
I have workshops for both level 2 and for level 3:
Level 2: 70-89 %
- Level 2 is for medium-highly skilled Rules officials, Rules geeks and all other interested in the Rules of Golf.
- To be eligible for Level 2-workshops, you must have a level where you expect to pass the exam (R&A Level 2 exam, the USGA 80 questions exam or the Oswald Academy Level II exam) with at least 70 %*.
- * = No documentation is needed.
Level 3: 90-100 %.
- Level 3 is for highly skilled Rules officials, Rules geeks and all other interested in the Rules of Golf.
- To be eligible for Level 3-workshops, you must within the recent 5 years have either:
- … obtained a score of at least 90 %* in a R&A Level 3 exam or the USGA 100 questions exam, or
- … obtained a score of at least 95 %* in the R&A Level 2 exam or the USGA 80 questions exam.
- … obtained a score of at least 45.000 points in The Oswald Academy Level II workshop exam..
* = Documentation is required to be eligible for these workshops. Now and then I allow someone to attend, although they do not meet the requirements, if they have skills that make me satisfied that they can end up in – or near – the 90-100 %. Such skills could be…:
- …refereeing experience.
- …teaching experience.
- …board memberships.
- …experience as a Rules official.
Please send me a short e-mail to email@example.com with an application and I will consider it.
Facts in short.

-> The price is $ 275 (Level 2) and § 325 (Level 3). (The USGA charges $ 375). Personal BASIC members: 15 % in discount. All other members: 25 % in discount.
Everybody is welcome (see special requirements for Level 3-workshops, though). The profile of a participant is typically this:
- Those studying for the USGA or R&A exam.
- People who have taken the R&A/USGA exam earlier and want to remain current.
- People volunteering in golf clubs as Rules officials, Rules referees, tournament staff, etc.
- People teaching in the Rules of Golf at their golf club.
- Anyone with a general interest in the Rules of Golf.
- Members on the board in golf clubs (for the “Mens Corner”, “Ladies Section”, Senior Section”, the club board, etc.)
- People who want to learn the new 2023-Rules of Golf.
You will be taught many of the Rules including Local Rules (Level 2), and Clarifications and Committee Procedures (Level 3). The teaching will be:
- Normal “slideshow” teaching.
- Videos of relevant Rules situations.
- Stories from “real life”!
You will be taught by Brian Nygaard Oswald, personally. Brian (Master of Laws, L.LM) is the founder and CEO of The Oswald Academy and – besides having an excellent knowledge to the Rules of Golf – is a very experienced teacher. He insists that learning should be fun and interesting, so don’t expect the Rules of Golf to be boring!
