2014 New England Cup Champs

Congratulation to the Boston team for winning the 2014 New England cup.



The Den Caddie

What do those red and yellow stakes mean?

Golf courses are designed to provide the golfer with a playing field.  The playing field contains safe areas (tee, fairway, green) and unsafe areas (hazards, bunkers, out of bounds)


Two types of unsafe areas are water hazards marked with yellow states and lateral Hazards marked with red stakes.


The color of the stake determines what you can do if your ball ends up in one of these unsafe areas.


There are three things you need to know before you can proceed:

  1. Is your ball in the hazard?
  2. Where did the ball enter the hazard?

  3. What type of hazard is it?
