Golf Rules

On 1 January 2019, there were a number of changes to rules of golf. We have had a lot of questions from both Members and guests on several new rules. A few key rules to remember are:

  • Time to search for a lost ball – 3 minutes (not 5 minutes)
  • Drop from knee height (not shoulder height)
  • Penalty areas replace water hazards, and you can move loose impediments, ground your club and take practice swings in penalty areas without penalty, just as you can on the fairway or in the rough
  • In bunkers you can move loose impediments. In bunkers you cannot touch the sand with your club in the area right in front of or right behind your ball, during your backswing or in taking practice swings
