Genger’s Notes- 2/1/17

IGA Annual District Meetings:

The Idaho Golf Association conducts three Annual meetings, one in each District. All IGA members are encouraged to attend the meeting in their District. There will be reports on the business of the association and election of Board members.

District 1 (Treasure Valley) Spring Meeting of the IGA Membership

  • February 16, 2017
  • Crane Creek Country Club

One Board Seat is up for election in Disrict 1. The following are on the ballot for the District 1 seat:

  • Isaac Ayabei, Meridian
  • Pierson Dewit, Boise
  • Dave Opdyke, Boise
  • Jennifer Swindell, Boise

District 2 (South Central, ID) Spring Meeting of the IGA Membership

District 3 (Southeastern, ID) Spring Meeting of the IGA Membership

  • Blackfoot Golf Course

All IGA members are invited to attend, particularly the leadership (officers) of the men’s and women’s golf association at your club as well as the Chair of the club’s Handicap Committee.

Agenda for all three District meetings will be as follows:

  • 5:00 – 6:00 p.m.  Handicap System Review

  • 6:00 – 6:30 p.m.  Reception (cash bar and hors d’oeuvres hosted by the IGA)
  • 6:30 – 8:00 p.m.  Meeting (reports and election of IGA District Board member)

When may the “stroke and distance” relief option under Rule 28 (Ball Unplayable) permit a player to drop a ball nearer to the hole than where the ball lay unplayable?

See Decision 28/8 Ball Deemed Unplayable; Place from which Previous Stroke Played Is Nearer the Hole.
A player’s ball strikes a rock and bounces farther away from the hole than the spot from which the stroke was played. The player deems the ball unplayable. May the player invoke the stroke-and-distance option of Rule 28?

Yes, and in such case, the ball would be dropped nearer to the hole than where the ball lay when it was deemed unplayable.

Knowing the Rules can save you strokes.
