Can we use winter fairway mats, prefered lies, clean and replace, lift a ball from the fairway and place in semi-rough?

Yes, if the local rules are in place for their use, mats, prefered lies, clean and replace and lift to semi-rough are permitted for use in the match. Competition rules support all local rules.

The committee makes this guidance on the advice of CONGU who advise a handicap qualifying competition can be undertaken with the use of fairway mats, preferred lies and clean and replace.
