Temporary Local Rule

11th Hole Water Hazard

Background. At present it is difficult to see if a ball lands in the water hazard on the left and right-hand sides due to overgrown areas. Also, players are unable to find a suitable point to drop their ball, with the only option open for some tee shots is to go back to the Tee, leading to pace of play issues and No Returns. Drop Zone has been defined and marked.
These areas have been discussed at Greens Committee and it is hoped these areas will be cleared in the winter months in order for correct drops to be taken.

Drop Zone 11th Hole (Water Hazard).

If a ball is in or it is known or virtually certain that a ball that has not been found is in the water hazard on the 11th hole, the player may:
( i ) Proceed under Rule 26-1; or
( ii ) as an additional option, drop a under penalty of one stroke, in the dropping zone pro-vided short of the water hazard marked with a yellow stake.

PENALTY FOR BREACH OF LOCAL RULE:
Match play - Loss of hole; Stroke play - Two strokes.

Note: (a) The dropped ball does not have to come to rest within the dropping zone.
(b) The dropped ball may roll nearer the hole provided it comes to rest within 2 club lengths of where it struck the course.
