Landa Legends ConstitutionBy-LawsTournament RulesWeekly ScoresHandicaps






A.  USGA Rules of Golf apply at all times EXCEPT as outlined below.


B.  You may improve your lie from tee to the green "2 STANDARD GRIP LENGTHS MAXIMUM." Putter grips may not be used. The improvement may not be closer to the hole.


C.  Ball in sand trap may be lifted and DROPPED in trap if lie is in an animal or human foot print.


D.  Any ball striking a POWER POLE or UTILITY LINE MUST be rehit, no penalty.  There is no line of sight relief!


E.  Tee Box:  Players may elect to play either Gold (Back) or Green (middle) tees.  Golfers aged 75 or over may play from the red (forward) tees. Players under 75 may request a change of tee box based on a physical impairment. Tee box can be changed ONLY during January of each year. Once the tee box is selected it is permanent unless approved by the Tournament Director and the Board.


F.  Player may clean or replace ball at any time (except in a hazard).


G.  Ball hit into water on holes 2,4,10 and 18 may be dropped on far side of hazard with penalty of one (1) stroke - EXCEPT - if TEE SHOT on holes 2 or 18 goes in water, drop must be on TEE side of hazard, one stroke penalty. All other “water holes” play as normal hazards.


H.  If ball is deemed LOST, and is agreed it is not in a hazard or out of bounds, a ball may be dropped at an AGREED upon spot where the ball was thought to be with penalty of one stroke.


I.  The highest score which can be recorded on any hole is a triple bogey.


I.  REMEMBER:

  1. All holes MUST be putted out (no gimmies).

  2. All ponds, wet or dry, are hazards as are all Red and Yellow staked areas.  Ball in hazard may be hit BUT NOT moved.  Ball in a hazard may be dropped within 2 club lengths OF WHERE BALL CROSSED THE HAZARD.

  3. White stakes are OUT OF BOUNDS as are fence posts on course perimeter.  An OUT OF BOUNDS ball MUST be rehit, not dropped.  If you THINK a ball may be OUT OF BOUNDS, hit a provisional ball immediately.  This avoids having to go back to rehit.

  4. If you hit a WRONG ball, replace that ball and proceed to hit your ball where it lies with a penalty of 2 strokes.

  5. YOU are responsible for your score on the scorecard.  Every card must be signed, attested and legible.  

  6. All rules violations should be first brought to attention of violator & if not corrected, to the attention of the Tournament Director.  Violation of rules will result in a D.Q. and possible suspension from Legends Golf.
