Play Day Results-Oct 11, 2022

Hi All,

Sorry the results are so late; I was pretty busy this week. For those who don’t know, I went with 7 other members from Discovery Bay to play in the FILAM (Filipino/American) tournament in Vegas. Team Disco took 3rd place in our flight. I know a couple other guys went and played on a senior team, and that team took 2nd in their flight. I would say we represented well.

Now, onto our results from 10/11. Game was S & T’s. Take your score from those holes and subtract ½ your handicap.

We had 18 players, 3 flights of 6. First place won $14.00, and Second place won $7.00.

September 2022 Rules Quiz

  1. When dropping a ball under a Rule, you drop the ball in the correct way twice and both times the ball comes to rest just outside the relief area, no nearer the hole.

What should you do?

  • You drop a ball under a Rule in the correct way in the relief area.  Your ball hits the ground first but then accidentally hits your foot before coming to rest in the relief area.

What should you do?

  •  In stroke play your ball is buried in the rough.  Without telling the other players you rotate your ball to identify it without marking it first.

What is the ruling?

  • The greenskeeper overwaters parts of the course, including the teeing area.  If after a stroke your ball lands in the accumulated water, are you allowed relief?

What is the ruling?

  • Your ball is in a bunker. 

What are your options for your next stroke?

  •  Your ball lands on the white line that defines Out of Bounds.  

What is the ruling?


  1. You must place a ball on the spot in the relief area where the ball that was dropped the second time first touched the ground.

Rule 14.3c

  •  As you dropped your ball in the correct way it does not matter whether the ball, after hitting the ground touches any person, (i.e., your foot), equipment or other outside influence before coming to rest. If your ball is in the relief area you play the ball as it lies.  Rule 14.3c

3.        You do not need to advise anyone that you are going to lift your ball to identify it BUT you must mark its position first.  Failure to            mark is a ONE stroke penalty!  Rule 7.3

4.        You are allowed free relief from any temporary accumulation of water on the course that can be seen before or after you take       your stance, without pressing down excessively with your feet.    Rule 16.1 Abnormal Course Conditions

5.        When your ball is in a bunker you may:

A.  Play the ball as it lies

B. Use Rule 19.3 Unplayable lie as below with ONE penalty              stroke:

1.  Play a ball from where you made your last stroke

2.  Play a ball back on the line and drop a ball IN the bunker

3.  Take lateral relief from where the ball lies in the bunker              dropping a ball IN the bunker

Extra option for TWO penalty strokes

You make drop a ball back on the line of relief OUTSIDE the                         bunker.  (See page 119 of your small rules book)

6.        Your ball is only Out of Bounds when ALL of it is outside the            boundary edge of the course.  The white line is out of bounds.  If      all of your ball is on the line it is out of bounds.  If any part of the             ball still touches the course you are IN bounds!  Rule 18.2a.  (See             page 112 of your small rules book)

Play Day Results-Aug 30, 2022


23 players teed it up today. The game was S&T’s. Ties were broken on the last 6 holes of the game. If still tie then last 3, and finally last hole of the game which was Hole 17.  

Payouts were $18.16 for 1st place, $8.00 for 2nd, and $5.52 for 3rd.  Only the first flight paid out 3 places due to the size of flights.

Deborah Martin won the tie breaker in first flight, so Conchita Christensen was a close 2nd.   Linda Montgomery came in 3rd.

Jeanne Zwemer won first place in the 2nd flight.  Mary Watkins was 2nd.

In the 3rd flight, Deborah Veatch and Doris Bunnell were tied at the end of the game.  They tied on the last 6 holes of the game and they tied on the last three holes of the game.  Finally, the tie was broken on the last hole and Deborah came in 1st

Red Stakes/Yellow Stakes




When you are certain that your ball has entered a penalty area (water hazard) whether it be lined with red or yellow stakes below are the options you are allowed to follow under the Rules of golf.

1st option.

Play another ball from where you are currently, i.e., where made your last stroke. 

Continue play with a one stroke penalty.

2nd option.

Go down to where you believe or saw you ball cross the margin/edge of the penalty area.  If you can see your ball in the penalty area you may play it as it lies.  You may ground your club, and make practice swings.  

Continue play with NO penalty.

3rd option.  Regardless of whether the stakes are RED or YELLOW

Determine the point where you estimate your ball last crossed the margin/edge of the penalty area and you may drop a ball in a relief area on a line going straight back from the hole through this estimated point.  The relief area is one club length in size either side of the point where you intend to drop a ball. You may go back on this line as far as you wish.

 Continue play with one stroke penalty.

4th option ONLY if the stakes are RED.

Red stakes usually line penalty areas which run laterally, as in along the course rather than across it making dropping a ball behind, in line with the pin, very difficult.  

Determine the point where you estimate your ball last crossed the margin/edge of this RED penalty area and drop a ball laterally within a two-club length relief area no closer to the hole.  This area is wedge shaped from your reference point where the ball crossed the margin.  See page 106 of your small 2019 Rules book for a great diagram.

Continue play with a one stroke penalty.  


Hole #12 Update

Hole #12 has a path along the left side of its fairway. Where it is bordered by the lake, penalty area, it is lined with round wood pilings. This path continues over the water and up to the back of the green.

Below is how to play your ball if it lands in the pilings or on the cart path .

The pilings are NOT in the water, penalty area, as can be seen by the red stakes that are attached to them along the water side. If your ball lands in them you get free relief on to the cart path, Rule 16.

If your ball is on the cart path you may take free relief from the path, Rule 16.

For our play if your ball is lodged in the pilings, you may do both these actions in one step.

Find your nearest point of relief in the grass where your feet are not on the path and drop a ball within one club length, no closer to the hole. Play on, no penalty. It MUST be your nearest point of relief so you may not go further out onto the fairway and play a ball!

Discovery Bay RECLAMATION DISTRICT 800 is responsible for the circulation of the lakes and lagoons that run through our course. On their official waterways map the path that runs across the water on hole #12 is designated as a bridge. Our club has deemed that this bridge, for terms of playing our course, is not a bridge but a cart path.

This area is played the same as above, free relief from pilings, and free relief from the “cart path”.


Play Day Results-Aug 23, 2022


30 players teed it up yesterday. The game was Gimme a break.

I reviewed the scorecards, because #8 had a temporary tee box and thought it may have caused some confusion on scoring.  Everyone did well on the handling of it. One group failed to deduct the score there, so the correction may have put you in the winners circle.  Becky and I decided to throw that hole out. For posting purposes the score will be par plus your pops, so your gross score will more than likely  have a slight difference when posted.
