Hi guys potential issue at our club, 8 th hole uphill OOB all up left side but a cart path runs up left side about 6 to 8 feet from fence. There are small trees planted along the fence which used to be staked so free drop, now they have grown stakes are gone and no free drop which is fine. ( free drop made hole too easy imho). Problem is if a ball stops on the gravel path and you are right handed the room to drop is small and trees and fence interfere. This makes it difficult in places to even have a playable shot after a free drop. You couldn’t play from path with out destroying a club b
One of our holes in our resort golf course has a wide water area on the left and trees and swamp on the right. Both sides have been designated as red marked penalty areas. Balls hit into either penalty area are allowed a drop area which is in front of all the tees and on the fairway. On the left, the water stretches the entire hole and it is 30 - 40 yards wide. Across the water are houses. Should a golfer who hits his tee shot into the penalty area and further into the houses is he allowed the drop area or must he re-tee. As a follow up if the answer to the above is re-tee, Ho
I am just using the language from the USGA question, and posting it here for discussion.

So… answer as if you're playing in your club championship or something, not about what you'd do in casual play. This is the type of rules change that could still make it into the 2019 Rules of Golf. So, let's discuss it. I voted as you can see above. Most of the time, OB is in a bad area, and I'd rather take my chan
I play at a course that has a dog leg right. From the tee box it's possible to reach the green if you cut the dog leg diagonally (forming a triangle with the ball path and the fairway). For safety reasons, a green that is very close, they've put up a net probably about 20' high between the tee box and the green, along with a sign on the box that states, "Over the net and to the right of white stakes is out of bounds". Even with the net, depending on the placement of the tees, it's still possible to hit your tee shot over the net and onto the green. It's by no means an easy shot, but none the l
