All golf competitions at Harburn will be operated under the new rules effective from Jan 2019.
One of the rule changes allowed Golf Clubs to adopt a Local Rule as an alternative to the old stroke and distance rule for a lost ball or out of bounds. However Harburn Council has decided at present NOT to adopt a new local rule regarding an alternative to stroke and distance. This decision will be reviewed at the end of the year. Note. other Golf Clubs may have adopted the new local rule.
Therefore this season at Harburn if a ball is lost or found to be out of bounds you must return to where you played your last shot ie no change in that rule. Take time to get familiar with the new rules before the season starts
