Whipplefest Modifications to the Rules of Golf
You should follow the USGA rules of golf; however, the following local rules apply to the TOC:
Two-person scramble - Both players hit every shot, the team then selects the best shot to play next. This continues until you have finished the hole (including putts).
Playing the Ball Up - "Bumping" your ball up to one club length is allowed to improve your lie.† This includes fairways, rough, sand bunkers, unmarked areas, and hazards.† You cannot move out of a sand trap, out of a hazard, back from OB, or from the fringe to the green.
Double Bogey Rule - Nothing over a double bogey is allowed.† Please pick up when you can no longer score a bogey on a hole.
Gimme Rule - Putts less than 2 feet are considered good.
Balls in Penalty Areas, Lost Balls, Unplayable Lies, and Out of Bounds - The change instituted in 2014 remains; these situations must be played per USGA rules.† An exception is touching the ball in a hazard.
