  • AGC Rules on Preferred Lies

    When you take a preferred lie, you must first mark where you ball lies. You may then clean your ball and then replace it within six inches of your marker. But no nearer to the hole being played.

    These are also the usual local rules in force for the 2015 golf season.
    Please check if Preferred Lies are allowed prior to starting your round. Especially after a spell of wet weather and throughout the Winter Season.
