Men’s Club Rules

News from the handicap Chairman. 11/04/2020
With the implementation of the World Golf rules of Handicapping, things have changed a little. We are only allowed to take double net bogie  when we post, so if anyone has a question please See me.
1. We are allowed to bump the ball in the fairway and rough and move from any shrub or tree that has a visible sprinkler, in the grass or gavel.  You are not allowed to bump the ball in the Gravel or dirt areas.
2. You are allowed to move the ball in the bunker out of footprints and heavy rake lines; however, if you hit the ball in the bunker and it becomes a fried egg, to bad so sad this needs to be played as it lies.
3. The area to the left of #7 Has a cement water drain. This drain is for the neighborhood flood control. This area will be a free drop two club lengths from the edge of the rough grass.  This will include the area starting at the the intersection of the home owners wall and the West side of the cement drain. Take a straight line to the rough and a straight line to the edge of the lake bank and all area in between these straight lines.
4. the area to the left of #14 where the larger red rocks are is also a hazard area a one stroke penalty drop on the lake side of the cart path, or play it.
5. The area, that had the rail fence on #17 is still an unplayable area and you are required to make a drop near the cart path in the gravel not penalty.
6. giving putts; this had been a problem for ever and will continue to be, please be reasonable when giving a putt all of us can miss a putt between 2 and 3 feet.  I am asking that you give no putt outside 2 feet and that you putt all closest to pin on Tuesday and Thursday in the hole. No GIMME putts. All Birdies Should be putted.  Thanks Earl
