Preferred Lies - May 18 & 19

Preferred Lies in Effect

May 18 & 19

When the ball lies in the General Area cut to fairway height length grass, anywhere on the golf course, free relief may be taken ONCE by placing the ball within One Club Length of the original lie no nearer the hole. The ball may be cleaned when taking this relief. A breach of this rule results in the general penalty under Rule 14.7a.

Temporary water is an abnormal course condition and free relief may be taken under Rule 16. The ball may be cleaned when taking this relief.

Good luck to everyone,

Matt Holub, Chairperson
OHCC MGA Rules Committee
