The R & A are introducing some rule changes for 2019.
The Out of Bounds rule is set to undergo huge changes in a bid to speed up play. From 1st Jan 2019, golf clubs will be allowed to install a local rule that golfers can drop a new ball in the vicinity of where their ball has gone out of bounds, with a two stroke Penalty.
PLEASE NOTE : As at Jan 2019, Beamish Park Golf Club will NOT be adopting a local rule as mentioned above.
