    Hazard markings

    Does a hazard marked on one hole, need to also be marked on the adjacent hole?

    Playing Greensmere Legacy this weekend I hit my tee shot on 14 into the left bush. I re-teed. I get to the next hole, the par 3 and the same wet, swampy bush area is marked red.

    Does a hazard need to be marked around the full parimeter, or is it possible to mark the entry to a hazard on one hole, and not the same spot on another?

    The perimeter need to be marked. How otherwise would you know where the ball crossed the margin on the 'other' hole?

    My thoughts exactly, but I wasn't sure if the same spot could be a hazard on one hole and not the other. However I believe that anything that is a hazard is marked within the property of the course identified by white stakes or other OOB markings. Heck, I've hit balls in places that course designers peobably didn't expect someone to be.

    1) A hazard (whether a bunker or water hazard) is a hazard by definition, whether marked or not.

    2) The Committee must define accurately:
    (ii) the margins of water hazards and lateral water hazards,
