TAKING RELIEF. Part of Rule 20-2c states; A dropped ball must be re-dropped, without penalty, if it:....(vi) rolls and comes to rest more than two club-lengths from where it first struck a part of the course; or (vii) rolls and comes to rest nearer the hole... this means that a ball may be played from up to 4 clublengths from its original position.
Queens Park Golf Club will be honouring our brave men and women who served and gave their lives for our country at a small ceremony to raise the flag and place a wreath at the Club’s flagpole on Saturday 25th April at 7.30 a.m. Everyone is welcome!

The most important shot in golf is the next one ~ Ben Hogan
To clarify a recently heard rules discussion:
A player must inform his opponent in match play or his marker or a fellow-competitor in stroke play that he intends to play a provisional ball, and he must play it before he or his partner goes forward to search for the original ball.
So, once the player has played another ball from the teeing ground if it was their tee shot that is lost (or dropped a ball at the point where they last played from) that is now the ball in play. It cannot be a provisional ball, even if it is announced as such, and it is irrelevant whether or not the original ball is found, as it may not be played.
