* New Local Rule. The woods on the left side of the cart path up near the
water on Port #8 are now a Lateral Hazard. If you hit a ball up into the
woods, you may choose to take a one stroke penalty and drop the ball
within 2 club lengths of where you crossed the red "line" into the hazard
(no closer to the hole). You do not need to find the ball to take the penalty
and drop. This lets you take a drop in the grass to the right of the cart path.
* New Local Rule addresses Accidental Movement of a Ball on the Putting Green.
* Congratulations to the Captains for their first place finish in cup 11 of WGAM's
Spring Teams matches. Hyannisport and Wianno finished tied for second place.
* The USGA and R&A are proposing a major modernization of the Rules of Golf.
