Please note the following new local rule effective from 23rd December 2017.
When a ball is lying on the path to the rear of the 15th green and is between the
marked blue lines, a player may either
(a) play the ball is it lies
(b) drop the ball (with no penalty) at the nearest dropping zone to the ball.
The dropping zones are designated by blue stakes and marked with blue lines.
Note: When using a dropping zone the following provisions apply regarding
the dropping and re-dropping of the ball:
(a) The player does not have to stand within the dropping zone when dropping the ball.
(b) The dropped ball must first strike a part of the course within the dropping zone.
(c) If the dropping zone is defined by a line, the line is within the dropping zone.
(d) The dropped ball does not have to come to rest within the dropping zone.
(e) The dropped ball must be re-dropped if it
(i) rolls and comes to rest out of bounds
(ii) rolls and comes to rest in a position where there is interference by the condition
from which relief was taken.
(iii) rolls and comes to rest more than two club-lengths from where it first struck a
part of the course.
If the ball when re-dropped rolls into any position listed above, it must be placed as
near as possible to the spot where it first struck a part of the course when re-dropped.
(f) The dropped ball may roll nearer the hole than the spot where it first struck a part of
the course, provided it comes to rest within two club-lengths of that spot and not into
any of the positions covered by (e).
