Gold Coast Golf Club Notes 19th July 2020
July 20th was a day many were looking forward to. It was the day phase 4 of easings were to be introduced but the new case rate of Covid 19 is deemed too high and so we now look forward to August 12th when things might change. For golfers everything will stay as it is until August 12th. If you get to play golf this week enjoy yourself. The forecast is good and so hopefully the golf will be too.

RULE FOR THE WEEK – UNPLAYABLE LIES
If your ball has come to rest in a position that you believe to be unplayable, you have three options.
Either hit another ball from the point of your previous shot, drop a ball behind the unplayable lie (as far back as you wish keeping the original lie between you and the hole) or drop the ball within two club lengths either side of the unplayable lie. Each option incurs a one stroke penalty. (Rule 28)
