About Barry Rhodes

Barry Rhodes is the author of ‘999 Updated Questions on the Rules of Golf 2016’ and ‘999 More Questions on the Rules of Golf’, the easiest and most enjoyable way to absorb and understand the Rules.

Barry qualified as a chartered accountant in London, but has since spent over 35 years in various sales & marketing management roles within the information communication technology (ICT) sector. He is an enthusiastic, high handicap golfer who developed an interest, then a fascination, and now an obsession with the Rules of Golf. He is resident in Dublin, Ireland, where he is an active member of Milltown Golf Club. His relationship with the Rules began in 2000 with his participation in the inter-club Rules of Golf quiz competitions, organised by the Royal & Ancient (R&A) for Golf Clubs in Great Britain and Ireland. This then led to him writing articles, running quizzes, and delivering presentations on the Rules at a variety of Golf Club and corporate functions. In March 2008, Barry became the first person to achieve a 100% correct mark on the public Advanced Rules of Golf Course examination, run by the PGA in their headquarters at The Belfry, West Midlands, UK. In April 2015, Barry received a ‘pass with distinction’ in the R&A’s Level 3, Tournament Administrators and Referees School examination, the highest certification awarded.
