Golf Law

Golf Law

If you are desperate to have an edge over the rest of your foursome, tell them about this recent California case. This case will give your partner one more swing-thought. The case involves golf etiquette, cell phones on the course, eye contact, and a tee shot gone awry. Who is responsible for the errant tee shot that hits another golfer in the head?

For the truly addicted golfers who need to know more about golf law, I can recommend the entertaining “The Little Green Book of Golf Law” by John H. Minan, a California attorney, published by none other than The American Bar Association.  Go to the ABA website, look under the web store, then search under “golf” and the book will come up.  While you are at it, for only $49.95 the ABA will sell you a leather-bound “Rules of Golf” by the USGA with Cream-white, acid-free paper, gilt edges, and a double-faced green satin ribbon marker.
