Winter Rules – Lift, Clean and PLACE are now in play
Winter Rules are now in operation in Beech Park. All members are reminded that the local rule is to “Lift, Clean and Place” the ball within 6 inches.
Members are reminded that:
- You must not bump it, roll it, foot wedge it, toss it or pick up the ball and drop it.
- You must mark the ball’s original position before lifting. Use a ballmarker, a tee, whatever.
- You are allowed to clean the ball after lifting. (Pervasive mud on the course is one of the most common reasons for implementing preferred lies.)
- After cleaning, you must place the ball—again, no bumping, rolling, kicking, tossing, etc.— on a spot within 6 inches of the original position of the ball.
