Local Rules – Winter Greens are GUR, Preferred Lies & Embedded Ball

WINTER GREENS
You will have seen that our winter greens have now been marked up across the course and will be used during frozen ground conditions, or when greenside bunkers are being worked on. These areas are now GUR with a compulsory “putter only” use policy. If your ball comes to rest on one of the marked temporary greens, you must either putt the ball from where it lays, or take relief away from the temporary green, to the nearest point of relief not nearer the hole. Once that position has been determined you must drop the ball within 1 club length from that point.

PREFERRED LIES
In accordance with rulings given by the Lancashire County Golf Union, we will now be operating preferred lies in all closely mown areas. If you ball should come to rest on a closely mown surface, you may mark your ball, lift and clean your ball, and replace you ball within 1 scorecard length, not nearer the hole.

EMBEDDED BALL
During the winter months you may now take relief, under no penalty, for an embedded ball through the green. This means that if your ball is deemed to have broken the surface of the ground, not just buried itself in deep grass or heather, you may take a free drop next to the original position of your ball, not nearer the hole. You must play the ball as it lies in all hazards (including bunkers) and on the putting surface.

Thank you,
