All golfers must putt out unless they have reached the maximum number of strokes allowed on any given hole (par plus 3 strokes). 2. A lost ball or a ball out of bounds will be replaced by a new ball as close as possible to the spot where the ball was lost or went out of bounds for a penalty of one-stroke (NOT stroke and distance). Local rules created by the course personnel will be followed as appropriate. League Members Information: E-mail address, home address and phone numbers will be provided to those league members who will be directing each week’s competition.
