So…Penalty Areas?
    • #3959

      Wanting to see if anyone else notices, and/or if any club management reads this page and might comment. Last two rounds (Larkin, Springfield) there hasn’t been a red or yellow stake or line anywhere on the course. I’ve noticed the same elsewhere but cannot remember exactly which courses. Certain areas, even without water, can or need to be marked because they are simply punitive. Without a drop option, it slows down play and adds strokes and distance. This is why there are not longer “Water Hazards” but “Penalty Areas” that the Committee can put anywhere. The Rules allow for relief if an unmarked area meets the definition of a hazard, but it’d be nice to have some indication of the borders and what your options are, red v. yellow.
