WildOats Local Wildwood Green Rules of Golf

Follow the USGA rules, Wildwood Green Rules and the following WildOats exceptions.

You may lift, clean and place the ball no more than ONE Foot in your own fairway, no closer to the hole

 Note: If the course conditions dictate that carts are restricted to the cart path for the course or individual holes, you may lift, clean and place the ball no more than ONE club length (avoiding any casual water) no closer to the hole anywhere on the course except in a hazard or sand trap. This applies only to the holes that have restricted carts to the path. 

  • Leaf Rule:-if your ball is lost in the leaves, (not in a hazard or out of bounds), drop a ball in the area where, in the opinion of your group, the ball landed. No penalty
  • Safety-in the interest of not damaging our clubs or ourselves, if your ball lands in an area where you could fairly hit the ball  and there are rocks or tree roots near or under you ball, move the ball to the nearest area that avoids these items and drop with No penalty.
  • if ball is on bare hard packed earth, drop on nearest grass, no closer to the hole. No penalty
