Extract from a letter from the Rules Committee of the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrew’s (R&A) 29/7/98

“….the Rules of Golf Committee’s preference is for your rules to mirror those of the Rules of Golf insofar as it is possible…”

“….Obviously it will be necessary for you to maintain the condition restricting the number of clubs….”

“….the Committee is very supportive of your initiative and is in agreement with your views that Pitch and Putt is not only a good game in itself but is an excellent introduction to the ‘longer ‘ game….”

Extract from a letter from the European Golf Association (EGA) of 8/10/02

“….The European Golf Association is hereby glad to recognise the separateness of Pitch and Putt as a sport….”

“….the European Golf Association is supportive of your initiative and is in agreement with your views that Pitch and Putt is not only a good game in itself but is an excellent introduction to the game of golf….”
