LADY NINERS LOCAL RULES
Carry Over Rule on Holes 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 12, 13 & the second water on Hole 15
This rule is to be used when there is water that you must directly hit over and no other option is available. If you hit into the water, to speed up play and avoid losing additional balls, you are to walk to the other side, drop the ball and hit from there. You are then hitting stroke #4. Example: 1st stroke into the water- 2nd stroke is a penalty for going into the water– 3rd stroke is a penalty for carrying the ball around the water – You are now hitting your 4th stroke.
Hole #10 & the first water on Hole 15
When you hit into the water on #10 you are to place your next ball at the red (forward) tees and hit from there. That would also be your 4th stroke.
Lateral Water Hazard
When you hit into a lateral water hazard, drop your ball closest to where it entered the water and take a 1 stroke penalty. Your drop may be 2 club lengths and no closer to the pin. (Holes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 & 8)
The concrete barriers around the lakes are considered part of the hazard. If your ball hits that without touching land on the other side and bounces back into the water, you should not take your ball out at that point…but go back to where it last crossed land.
