Cart Path Drop

Posted March 24, 2014 in beginner intermediate advanced rules

When your ball comes to rest on or near a cart path, you can either take a drop or play it as it lies.

If you take a drop you will find the nearest point to where the ball already is and take a stance that gets your feet and club head completely off the cart path. You’re allowed one club length from where the ball would be in your address position. The club length can be in any direction as long as it is not closer to the hole (sideways or backward). Drop within this club length and play the ball from here.
