This was partially brought up on the Midwest Amateur Championships discussion, but I didn't want to thread drift. Whilst playing the July 4th superclass round, an approach was made to hole 17's long right basket down by the road. The shot went long and over the street/parking lot pavement and landed in the dirt/grassy area that is part of hole 12 (we call it the peninsula placement for 12). While this is typically played as out of bounds in leagues and such, the comment was made that technically there is not a defined OB line to make that out of bounds. Theoretically the line extends from the basket north towards #13's fairway, turns right at the end of the pavement, hangs another right and then comes back towards the basket. I do not believe that there is a line extending to those backyards over there for OB; the line follows the pavement per the last sentence. We know that hole 9's fairway is certainly OB, but what about across the street on the backside of hole 12's peninsula green? Tis the question: WAS TANK OB OR NOT?!?!?!
