Ball Drop Areas

As an additional relief option for balls entering the below designated water hazards a player may PLACE a ball in a designated drop area.
Coral Canyon- Hole #6. Bloomington- Holes #2, #7, #17.

 Huh?

Quote
As provided in Rule 33-8a, the Committee may make and publish Local Rules for local abnormal conditions if they are consistent with the policy established in this Appendix. In addition, detailed information regarding acceptable and prohibited Local Rules is provided in "Decisions on the Rules of Golf" under Rule 33-8 and in "How to Conduct a Competition."

If local abnormal conditions interfere with the proper playing of the game and the Committee considers it necessary to modify a Rule of Golf, authorization from the United States Golf Association must be obtained.

...

6. Dropping Zones

Establishing special areas on which balls may or must be dropped when it is not feasible or practicable to proceed exactly in conformity with Rule 24-2b Immovable Obstruction), Rule 24-3 (Ball in Obstruction Not Found), Rule 25-1b or 25-1c (Abnormal Ground Conditions), Rule 25-3 (Wrong Putting Green), Rule 26-1 (Water Hazards and Lateral Water Hazards) or Rule 28 (Ball Unplayable).

8. Dropping Zones

If the Committee considers that it is not feasible or practicable to proceed in accordance with a Rule providing relief, it may establish Dropping Zones in which balls may or must be dropped when taking relief. Generally, such Dropping Zones should be provided as an additional relief option to those available under the Rule itself, rather than being mandatory.

Using the example of a Dropping Zone for a water hazard, when such a Dropping Zone is established, the following Local Rule is recommended:

"If a ball is in or it is known or virtually certain that a ball that has not been found is in the water hazard (specify location), the player may:

    (i) proceed under Rule 26; or

    (ii) as an additional option, drop a ball, under penalty of one stroke, in the Dropping Zone.

PENALTY FOR BREACH OF LOCAL RULE:
Match play - Loss of hole; Stroke play - Two strokes."

Note: When using a Dropping Zone the following provisions apply regarding the dropping and re-dropping of the ball:

    (a) The player does not have to stand within the Dropping Zone when dropping the ball.

    (b) The dropped ball must first strike a part of the course within the Dropping Zone.

    (c) If the Dropping Zone is defined by a line, the line is within the Dropping Zone.

    (d) The dropped ball does not have to come to rest within the Dropping Zone.

    (e) The dropped ball must be re-dropped if it rolls and comes to rest in a position covered by Rule 20-2c(i-vi).

    (f) The dropped ball may roll nearer the hole than the spot where it first struck a part of the course, provided it comes to rest within two club-lengths of that spot and not into any of the positions covered by (e).

    (g) Subject to the provisions of (e) and (f), the dropped ball may roll and come to rest nearer the hole than:

        its original position or estimated position (see Rule 20-2b);

        the nearest point of relief or maximum available relief (Rule 24-2, 24-3, 25-1 or 25-3); or

        the point where the original ball last crossed the margin of the water hazard or lateral water hazard (Rule 26-1).

The Utard Golf Association couldn't find their balls with both hands and Clive's infomercial.

This is just the latest of many...   Bangs Head

They outrage and disgust me.

They know me.   Devil

The Rules of Golf and the Handicap System Manual are simply suggestions to them.  If you politely bring up problems like this they sorta joke it away.  If you persist they ignore you.  If you really persist you get a nasty letter from the executive director and they won't renew your membership.  I think I know a guy who had that happen to him. 

Roll Eyes

They're great about recognizing contributors to Utah golf and so forth.  Not so hot when it comes to running their handicap system or running tourneys.  It's a shame given they have a staff of just a few people (according to their site) with 30,000 members paying $25 or so per year.  I'm not great at math but I think that's 3/4 of a million annually and as far as I can see they provide *fudge* all for it beyond salaries, leasing office space and paying for the staff's travel to play golf and eat dinner.

Whew.  Discussing the UGA always gets me fired up.  Mark, Baaab or I could go on for hours...   Cool

Ah.  Bach.

How about if we let Aske pick out avatars for all of us, and then I email them a link to this thread.
