The Seminar, which was first sponsored by Schwab in 2012 and includes both theory and practical sessions, will be conducted in English and is open to anyone who is passionate about golf and interested in the Rules. If they wish, participants will also be able to sit the R&A Level 1 accreditation exam on the day. The HKGA is the first governing body in Asia to offer this accreditation using locally-qualified referees as instructors.

Hong Kong rules officials are internationally recognised and many have refereed at European Tour events.

"The Hong Kong Golf Association is delighted to once again receive the support of Charles Schwab, Hong Kong, Ltd.," said HKGA Chief Executive Iain Valentine. "The Rules Seminar is always an informative and entertaining day, one that is of benefit to golfers of all abilities."

"The Rules Seminar last year was a great success and we are very glad to be continuing our support for golf in Hong Kong. At Schwab, we are passionate about both golf and investing and the principle that guidance from a professional can really help your game," said Charles Schwab Hong Kong Managing Director, James Sun (pictured).

The closing date for entries – which can be made through the HKGA website ( – is 8 March. For more information call Dolla Chui at 2504 8202.
