Local rules

Some doubt exists on which rule applies if a ball comes into the security zone behind green-7.

It is explained in the local rules posted in the check-in hut or on the EGC web-site.

Local-rule recalled;.

4-3 If a ball is hit into or deemed lost in the environmentally protected/security related hazard areas behind the fourth green and the seventh green, such a ball may not be played as it lies. The player may proceed according to rule 27 or drop a ball, under penalty of one stroke, in the respective dropping zone.
