Guest Day – June 26, 2018

We had 25 ladies play Texas Twosome, including 6 guests.

The game was Texas Twosome.  The team picked the best drive of the four players, then each player played their own ball from that spot.  The two best net balls were used for the team score for each hole.   It presented some interesting results, especially an abundance of birdies…

Local Rules

Local rules are determined by the Rules committee, or course professional and apply to a specific tournament or regular play on the course. Local rules established by a course professional should be posted in the Pro shop and should be printed on the back of the course scorecard.

Local rules allowed by the Tournament committee may be different to the course local rules.

If any local rule is put into place that is not in accordance with the Rules of Golf players are not competing under the Rules of Golf, and if they use these local rules their scores are invalid.

Here at Discovery Bay our local rules established by our course professional are found on the back of our scorecard.

Accidental movement of ball on putting green. When a player’s ball lies on the putting green, there is no penalty if the ball or ball-marker is accidentally moved by the player, his partner, his opponent, or any of their caddies or equipment.

The moved ball or ball-marker must be replaced as provided in Rules 18-2, 18-3 and 20-1.

This Local Rule applies only when the player’s ball or ball-marker lies on the putting green and any movement is accidental.

Relief from sprinkler heads around the putting greens that interfere with your line of play. You are entitled to relief if sprinkler is within two club lengths of the putting green, and your ball is within two club lengths of the sprinkler. The ball must be DROPPED at the nearest point to where it lays that avoids the interference.

Staked trees. Relief is permitted when a player’s stance or area of intended swing is interfered with by the stake or guide wires of that tree. (Nearest point of relief plus one club length no closer to the hole.)

Bunkers right side of holes #5, 6, and 10 are designated waste bunkers and a player may ground their club.

Drop area on hole #4.


On our ladies play days and our ladies tournaments it is the sole discretion of our tournament committee which of the Local rules posted on the back of our scorecards they allow for play. For example, additional allowed local rules not listed on the scorecard are “Winter rules, Preferred lies” when there are wet conditions, and “relief from aeration holes” after course aeration.

Be sure to check with your Committee which local rules they allow for play days and tournaments.
