It is essential that all players are diligent in their repair of pitch marks on greens. A pitch mark that is repaired correctly and as soon as it happens will recover in 24 hours.

Some members may believe and, or are using Model Local Rule (MLR) 8E-5 as an alternative to Stroke and Distance when their ball has landed OB from the 9th tee. MLR 8E-5 allows you to take a drop in the nearest spot on the fairway within two club lengths on the edge of the fairway, no nearer to the hole where the ball crossed the OB line, with a two stroke penalty.
