  • Local rules related to ground conditions- lift, clean and place.

    This question is pandemic related and indicates the increased level of play on our course.

    Our # 2 handicap hole is a dog leg left that has a landing area that most golfers hit....eventually. Because of the pandemic, there are no sand bottles put out for walkers which is a predominately walking course. There is also limited greens crew, staff being in limited supply. Our membership is full and the tee sheet is full every day. The landing area looks like a pack of wild dogs has done their business daily in this area. We are coming up to playing the ball down, probably on 01 May. Can we as the committee institute a local rule of lift clean and place to address this issue. This is not just in the fairway but in the rough as well.

    Or can we use a "no play zone" policy and ask the club to seed or sod the area to rehabilitate this area. Looking for some language to present to our committee.

    My uneducated take is that your committee can do either
    "Don't cry because it's over, Smile because it happened "

      You have several choices:
      - Local Rule for lift, clean and place in that hole's fairway (rough is definitely not recommended)
      - mark the part of the fairway as GUR, maybe by putting two stakes on each edge of the fairway (rather than painting)
      - mark it as GUR and make it a NPZ. Remember that a player cannot even stand in a NPZ to hit a ball which is not in the NPZ
