RESPECT THE DANGER
The potential outcomes of a ball hitting the stone wall are radically divergent, but strategically, it should be regarded as a water hazard. Sure, with a lucky strike a ball could propel forward near the green, or safely backwards 15 to 20 metres to where a perfect lay-up would’ve been played. But you’ll see lots of bad kicks, too. If a ball finds a crevice in the rocks or settles by the wall where you can’t swing, that’s an unplayable lie. You’ll have to take a drop and add a penalty stroke, same as if it were in a creek.
