2021 Society Rules update


Skipper Nigel Stevenson has made some club rule changes to help to speed up the rounds and experiment with course issues that will help the less experienced higher handicapper.

Rule changes (society events only, local rules take priority)

  • Preferred lie (fairway only) relief from divots, 6″ from the ball position, no closer to the green, do not clean the ball – no penalty
     
  • Gimmes, no more than 1 putter grip length at the discretion of the other group members
  • Out of bounds and lost ball, relief 2 club length in from the edge of the fairway adjacent to ball entry point – 2 shot penalty (see diag below)
