806.03 Casual Area

Last updated: Sunday, December 31, 2023 - 18:11

  1. A casual area is casual water, or any area specifically designated as a casual area by the Director before the round. Casual water is any body of water that is in-bounds and has not been explicitly declared by the Director to be in play.
  2. To obtain relief from a casual area, the player's lie may be relocated without penalty to the nearest lie which is farther from the target and is on the line of play, at the nearest point that provides relief (unless greater casual relief is announced by the Director).
  3. A player who takes relief other than as allowed by rule receives one penalty throw.
