Preferred Lies- Update

Preferred lies - Update 

A gentle reminder that neither England Golf or the Kent Golf Union has introduced Preferred Lies across the board for all golf courses. Whilst there are a small number of clubs here in Kent and neighbouring counties who have been granted permission from the County to introduce Preferred Lies, this has been done in strict accordance with Clause 15.2 (detailed below for reference) from CONGU.

15.2 Outside the period specified in 15.1 Competition Play Conditions will only apply when preferred lies are in operation if the consent of the Union or Area Authority has been obtained. England and Ireland delegate the granting of consent for preferred lies outside the specified period to their Area Authorities.

Any use of Preferred Lies without consent from the County will render all competitions as non-qualifying for handicap purposes.
