2023 Competitive Round Golf Rules
Tees of choice with an appropriate handicap.
Lift clean and place in own fairway one club length no closer to the hole
Lateral water hazards are defined by red lines and stake
Water hazards are defined by yellow lines and stakes
Putt out all putts. Triple Bogie = pick up. Once a ball enters the water hazards a
one-stroke penalty is taken. The ball should be dropped two club lengths from the
point of entry no closer to the hole. If a ball is lost (Tall Grass/Weeds etc.) as a
result of not being found or identified as his by the player within five minutes after
the player’s side of his or their playing partners have begun to search for it, the
player must play the ball, under penalty one stroke, as near as possible at the spot
from which the original ball was last played
Out of bounds is defined by white stakes with black caps. The New stroke-and-distance
local rule allows players the option of dropping in the fairway if they so choose. Players
must find where their ball went out of bounds and create an imaginary perpendicular
to the fairway, no closer to the hole. From there, you can now drop anywhere within two
club lengths behind the line (2-stroke penalty).
Ground Under Repair: consists of all newly sodded areas, fire ant hills, grass
replacement, torn-up mud, etc.
Embedded Ball and Casual Water – Relief through to the green
Drop Zone: Relief will be given from any tree roots and cart paths
