LCP for amateurs
524 Views    6 Replies    1 Like   I like it!
We as amateurs generally play on public courses and follow USGA rules. Professional golfers play in events that are run by a committee and they decide when to play preferred lies if conditions merit. We do not have that provision.

I propose the following.

When the course declares "cart path only" we be allowed to practice LCP. If carts are off the path, play it down.

Opinions?

Sounds like a good idea.

I propose if the course declares "cart path only" then don't make it a mandatory charge for a damn cart that doesn't "save me time" as the course claims when I can't drive it to my ball.

Exactly! I argued that point unsuccessfully with the management of Etowah Valley while a member. Walking is actually faster on those days.

Save for the few courses that are always cart path only (e.g. Harding Park or The Ranch in Northern California), regardless of how dry the fairways may be.

I play LCP anytime that there have been an overnight rain and it is obvious the fairways are wet ... not because it is cart path only.
