Footy Tipping is back again in 2021 Check the rules here

"Nearest point of relief" (NPoR) not the nicest point of relief, and lifting and dropping your ball in correct manner.

When taking relief from an obstruction on the course, the correct procedure must be adhered to, if not, a one stroke penalty is to be added to your score by your marker. The correct procedure when taking relief either from, free relief or under penalty is,  

  1. First mark your ball's position before lifting (Use a Tee or an artificial marker to mark the ball’s position. You cannot use a twig, leaf, rock, or any other natural object on the course to mark your ball.) 

  2. Place another marker where your club would be placed on the ground with your stance clear of the obstruction you are taking relief from, no closer to the hole. (there will be a number of relief points that the ball can be dropped, all these drop points should be marked so the closest drop point is found, not the nicest. (There has been some confusion on the 9th/ 18th when a ball is on the path and players have been picking up their ball without marking and dropping onto the 1st Tee, instead of under the bushes which could be the closest point of relief. (It is the marker's responsibility to ensure the correct procedure is followed, if unsure the correct procedure had been followed then an one stroke penalty should be added.) (Remember the ball can always be played as it lies without taking relief)

  3. When the NPoR is agreedupon by your markerthe ball can be dropped within one club length, no closer to the hole. (Drop the ball from knee height) 

  4. Remove markers before taking next stroke.
