RULES: We continue to receive questions regarding the Local Rules for play on certain holes, primarily water holes.
Oakwood Palms No. 7. Additional option under Rule 28; if the ball comes to rest against the Out of Bounds wall behind the green and is unplayable it may be lifted under penalty of one (1) stroke and played from the designated drop area behind, and to the right, of the green. This drop area may not be used for balls in the water. A separate area, below and to the left of the green, near the cart path, may be used for balls that are hit into the lake under penalty of one (1) stroke.
Oakwood Lakes No. 2. As an additional option under Rule 26-1, for a ball that comes to rest anywhere in the water, the player may, under penalty of one (1) stroke, drop a ball in the designated area behind and to the right of the green just off the cart path. League play may designate that option.
A complete set of Local Rules may be found on the league web site under “Rules.” Take a few minutes and review them.
