Apology re notes 26th July 2020.
Under the Rule for the Week section of the notes on 26th July “No way Back from out of bounds”. The information stated in this post was from an older version of the rules of golf. Sorry for any confusion caused by this. Booklets with the current, up to date, rules are available from the kiosk.
