2019 Rules Update – Part 1

These rules take affect on January 1, 2019 – Not prior to that date!  There will be additional posts over the next few weeks.


Ball at rest accidentally moved

There is no longer a penalty if you accidentally moving your ball, or ball marker, when it is on the putting green.  You must however replace your ball where it was before you moved it.

No longer a penalty for moving your ball during a search. The ball must be replaced, but if you don’t know the exact spot you now place the ball on its estimated spot.  The prior rule had you dropping the ball.

Ball in motion

There is no longer a penalty if your ball in motion accidentally hits you or your equipment, your caddie, the person attending the flagstick or a removed or attended flagstick.

Ball struck more than once

There is no longer a penalty if you accidentally hit your ball more than once during a stroke

Embedded ball

You may take relief for an embedded ball anywhere in the “general area” which is the new term for “through the green” but not in the sand.

Dropping a ball

You must now drop the ball straight down at “knee height”, that is the height of your knee when you are in a standing position.  You must not spin or throw the ball, and it must not hit your body or equipment.  If it does, you must redrop the ball

Last one for today, and probably one of the more surprising ones!

Loose impediments in bunkers

You are now allowed to remove loose impediments in bunkers.  Loose impediments are objects such as stones, loose grass, branches, rocks, or leaves.  You are allowed to touch the sand when doing so but you still cannot test the consistency of the sand.

Playday GIR (Greens in Regulation) – September 11, 2018

Hi Ladies-

Hope it wasn’t too exhausting trying to figure out the game today!  It was GIR or Greens in Regulation.  To determine how many strokes it took you to get on the green, you deducted your putts from your total score.  To determine your personal goal for strokes to green, take 71 (course par) + your handicap and subtract 36 (regulation putts). Winners were those who came closest to their GIR.


1st Flight / Hcp 5-24

3 way tie between Cindy Aafedt, Jeanne Zwemer, and Cathy Fancey, with each player shooting 3 over and receiving $4.

2nd Flight / Hcp 25-31

Susan Graham – 3 over $8

Joanne Leete – 5 over $4

3rd Flight / Hcp 32-35

Sally Sturney – 0 $8

Susan Leeper – 2 over $4

4th Flight / Hcp 36

Sonja Welin – 7 over $6.75

Debbie Kelley – 10 over $3.25

Note:  Most Flights had 6 players, so $12 available for Sweeps.  Flight 4 had 5 players so $10 was available for Sweeps.

Closest to the Pins, worth $3 each:

Hole #2:  Suzy Graham 8’2” & Doris Bunnell 38’8”

Hole #7:  Annette Krey 3’10” & Sandy Mize 3’6”

Hole #14:  Annette Krey 3’10” & Sandy Mize 36’10”
