From Friday 27th April 2018, the Lift Clean & Place rule stops. Please Play the Ball as it Lies.
NEW TEMPORARY LOCAL RULE from Friday 27th April 2018
DURING PLAY OF 5TH/14TH HOLES ONLY
The area beyond the yellow posts which was previously deemed to be out of bounds is now to be considered as a Water Hazard.
If a ball which enters this area between the two yellow posts is found in this area or if it is known or virtually certain that the ball is in the hazard, the player may under penalty of one stroke:
a. Play the ball from as nearly as possible at the spot where the original ball was last played; or
b. Drop a ball behind the water hazard, keeping the point at which the original ball last crossed the margin of the water hazard directly between the hole and the spot on which the ball is dropped, with no limit to how far behind the water hazard the ball may be dropped.
a. Rule 13-4 applies.
b. A ball played into this area during the play of any other hole is Out of Bounds
