Why are there so many Rules in golf?  Well, there are five areas of the course and the rules differ depending on the area your ball is in. 
The general area, which covers the entire course except for the four specific areas.
The teeing area of the hole you are playing where you start play of that hole (Rule 6 ).
Penalty areas (Rule 17-19 ).
All bunkers (Rule 12),
The putting green of the hole you are playing (Rule 13).

It is important to know the area of the course where your ball lies as this affects the Rules that apply in playing your ball or taking relief. For example, penalty areas means that if you go in a penalty area you will be penalised in some way. The basic rule is to play the ball as it lies. The pro and your buddy will help you with Rules.

Why do I need a Handicap Index (HI)?  In golf, a Handicap Index is not a necessity to enjoy the game, but it does allow you to track your progress and it makes the game more competitive, especially if you're playing a round with golfers at a different level to yourself. You must have a HI if you want to join in competitions.

What do the different colour flags, markers and signs mean?
On the Tees, the green, purple and blue markers indicate which course you are playing.
On the Course, blue distance stakes on both sides of the fairway mark 150 yards from the middle of the greens, white posts mark out of bounds and yellow or red posts mark penalty areas.
On the Greens (during the summer months the blue/white flags indicate the back of the green, the yellow flags the middle of the green and the red flags the front of the green
