Certainly they are hard to lose as they just stay where placed. Some have commented that time is wasted gutting them set up out of their cases, or pushing them into the ground. Surely not as much that is spent searching for a 'favourite tee" that had flown forward, back or sideways.. I have one that I sometimes use on the range...saves running out collecting tees in the line of fire.
I play off 28 and had 36 putts today - my best is around 32, can't remember my worst number, but would be disappointed to be over 40   One big difference with the low h'cappers is that they put their chips and pitches a lot closer more consistently than hackers - apart from their being better putters too.
  Technically of course you are all disqualified under 1 - 3 Players must not agree to exclude the operation of any Rule or to waive any penalty incurred. PENALTY FOR BREACH OF RULE 1-3: Match play – Disqualification of both sides;Stroke play – Disqualification of competitors concerned.
  As mentioned earlier, IF anyone puts in a handicap card with gimmies then they are in breach of the rules = cheats.  Pure and simple. On the other hand, for a social game not in competition nor for handicap, I frankly don't give a rat's whether you have gimmes from the whole green, tee off from in front of the tee boxes, have mulligans, free drops from divots or whatever  
 If you were headed for Australasia then you should also consider the two courses at Barnbougle, Northern Tasmania (Dunes and Lost Farm), and some of the half dozen amazing courses within half an hour of Queenstown, NZ  (including Jack's Point, The Hills, Millbrook and Kelvin Heights).   Melbourne's Sandbelt and the area beyond, the Mornington Peninsula has at least half a dozen fabulous courses.   I am sure there are many others too.  New South Wales GC in Sydney is said...
Not wishing to be too precious, but 'gimmies' are OK for social play, maybe, if agreed by all parties, but if anyone tried it on me in a club competition or for handicap I would not sing their scorecard (would warn them when they first tried it).  And as pointed out above, they are appropriate for match play.
As a matter of interest what happens if one uses an abrasive  steel brush?   IF it results in a little rust, is this necessarily bad?   Could aid spin perhaps?  Would it make the club non-conforming?
You need to visit Royal Melbourne!! I have never seen so many deep bunkers - some would be well over 10 feet. Kingston Heath (also in Melbourne) not far behind.
Quite correct - in fact you cannot play the original ball even were it in some perfect position.
