7th & 14th Staking


Note a slight change to the penalty area above. If a ball crosses into the penalty area over/between 2 yellow stakes you have the following options.
  • Under penalty, play again from the position you are in. (Option 1 in diagram below)

  • Proceed to penalty area & Play the ball as it lies
  • Under penalty, drop a ball on the line of flag position & the point where you last crossed the margin of hazard. Going back as far as desired > Option2 in diagram below

  • The only difference for crossing over/between 2 red stakes is: you can drop 2 club lengths from where you last crossed the margin (not nearer the flag position), But you cannot drop within or have your stance inside the penalty area.
The penalty area will be reviewed after a site visit from a Golfireland rules official, where extra options e.g. Drop Zones will be considered.
