Preferred Lies on the Fairway Only

01-Apr-2018

From Tuesday 3rd April 2018 we will return to having preferred lies on the fairway only. 

A 30cm preferred lie (no closer to the hole) can be taken on the fairway and closely mown areas around the green.  Please mark your ball before lifting.  Balls may be cleaned while taking a preferred lie.

In addition to this, players on the green may also take GUR relief if their ball is resting on a bare patch on the green or if their line is impacted by a bare patch on the green.  You must be on the green for this to apply.  Relief on the greens is taken by placing (not dropping) the ball on the nearest point of relief no closer to the hole.
