Marking of the lie would be the logical place, at that point the question becomes what is a "reasonable time" to reach your lie. No way to fully escape subjectivity I suppose.

I don't view it as a different question. Design is all about how players relate to the course.

Not ARay but no... or at least there should not be. As the rules are currently there effectively is no enforceable time limit.

Makes sense. We are in that same transitional state at Raptor's Roost. Golf course there has been closed since 2014 so there are some useful scrub trees which have grown up but getting it to be a...

Permethrin on your clothes is not meant to kill ticks but to repel them. Treating the pants I wear in the woods (where I spend a good proportion of my time) has been the single biggest difference...

Currently 49 out of 50 states approved for sanctioning with New Mexico the outlier. Obviously something in the state regs doesn't allow for it. I expect some others will get rolled back shortly.

I don't think Meriweather existed in the 80's. Pretty sure that was a 90's thing- I played it in maybe 98(?) and it did not seem like an old course then. (And the Ant Farm part was no joke...) I...
