Golf Rule of the Month
I want to take this opportunity to address a local rule that the USGA just put into effect on January 1st, 2019. Each club or tournament may adopt a local rule that allows a player that has hit a ball out of bounds to drop a ball 2 clubs lengths into the fairway no closer to the hole and add 2 strokes. Here at Point Venture we will NOT adopt this local rule. We will play out of bounds as stroke and distance as we always have through the history of the game.
If you have any questions on this rule or any other rule please feel free to stop in and ask me.
Keep it in the fairway!
