All putts must be holed. No gimmes.
New Rule – Preferred Lies are not allowed, except if your ball has landed in an unraked footprint (animal included) in the bunker.
Balls hit into the bogs: All bogs shall be played as lateral hazards. Players may choose from the following:
1-Play your next shot from the designated drop area – 1 stroke penalty. For Southers Marsh Tournaments, there are only drop areas on holes 1, 3, and 17. Please drop at the gold tees on those holes, not where the drop area signs are.
2-Take your stance at the ball’s point of entry into the hazard and drop within 1 club length – 1 stroke penalty.
3. Replay from the tee – 1 stroke penalty
NOTE: Incurring a “one stroke penalty” explained – For example, your tee shot goes into the bog. You now will be hitting your third shot after you have taken relief. (One shot into the bog, one penalty shot to get out of the bog, hitting your third shot from one of the 3 relief options above.)
