One significant change in the 2019 golf rules is that clubs have the option of adopting the local rule described above to speed up play. Both Playa Serena and Almerimar have adopted this local rule for use from now on.
Juan posted the information above on the noticeboard in the Almerimar pro-shop earlier this week.
In the case of Almerimar it states in the heading that the local rule applies when not playing in competitions. I assume this means in all circumstances other than when playing in official Spanish Federation golf competitions.
