From Saturday 29 March all the bunkers and their surrounds recently refurbished, (and currently ‘lift and drop’) will be back in play. Play the ball as it lies from that date.

The area to the left of the 6th green on the Medal will no longer be ‘lift and drop’. The white lines may take some time to disappear, but the signs will be removed. The ball should therefore be played as it lies from 29 March.

The area to the right of the 13th on the Medal, and the area between the 4th Ashludie and 16th Medal will both continue to be ‘lift and drop’ areas; drop the ball within one club length of nearest point of relief, not nearer the hole.

Preferred lies on the fairways will continue until 30 April.
