best ball tournaments – We allow up to a 10-stroke differential between
partners handicaps in all 2-man best ball tournaments. For example, if

out all balls. No gimmees!
lies: All our events are played with the rule that golfers are allowed
to improve the lie any place on the course excepting hazards (sand traps,
water hazards, etc.).
ball: For balls lost in a hazard, drop a ball within 2 club lengths (not
nearer the hole) from the point the ball first crossed the hazard line
and count a one-stroke penalty. For balls lost anywhere else, drop a ball
within 2 club lengths of a point as near as possible to the assumed
position of the lost ball and count a one-stroke penalty. Note that
fellow competitors must agree upon the assumed position.
- Out-of-bounds: Drop a ball within 2 club lengths of the point where the original ball
crossed out-of-bounds and count a one-stroke penalty.
In compliance with current USGA acceptance (2006 Decisions on the Rules of
Golf--Decision 14-3/0.5), distance-measuring devices will be allowed to be
used in all GLSGA events.
your own group: We do not have officials on the course and therefore
cannot render rulings during tournament play. If you believe a fellow
competitor violated a rule of golf (or one those specified here) place
the complaint in writing and submit it to one of the association
directors. Note that complaints not in writing will be disregarded.
scores: The players in one cart will keep the
score of the golfers in the opposite cart. Disputes on the accuracy of the recorded scores
settled before the scorecards are turned in. Golfers are
reminded to verify the accuracy of their scorecards before
submitting them to the scorers.
