Can a golfer take relief from an embedding ball on the fairway or the rough?

You are entitled to a free drop if the ball is plugged in the fairway or closely mown area, that is apron, fringe etc, (nearest point of relief, no nearer the hole). If the ball is plugged in the rough, there is no relief.

What kind of grass is on a fairway?

There is the first cut, and then the rough. The first cut is longer than the fairway, but shorter than the rough.

Do you get relief from a plugged ball in the rough?

Normally, no. Governed by Rule 25-2. You need to stay on the fairway to get relief. Local rules may provide for relief under unusual circumstances.Is there ever free relief for a ball that is embedded in the rough?Only if the Committee has made a Local Rule permitting relief for an embedded ball through the green, due to abnormal course conditions that warrant such relief. The relief has to specifically permit relief for an embedded ball through the green, for example, it is not sufficient for a notice to say ‘”Winter Rules in operation”.

What is a deep rough in golf?

There are several types of "cuts" in golf, referring to the length of grass. The fairway is the shortest grass (other than the green), which is followed by the "first cut" of rough, usually a boundary around the fairway. The second cut of rough is next, and typically refers to the "standard" rough. The "deep rough" can either mean a particularly long cut of "second cut" rough, or could mean thick, overgrown, un-mowed grass or weeds further from the fairway than the second cut. However, there is no "official" definition.

What clubs are numbered and are usually used in the fairway?

These are called irons, they are numbered 1-9 with various lofts and lengths. They can be used from the rough or anywhere, as can fairway woods.

Can you drop golf ball from semi rough to green when on a sprinkler head and not dropping nearer the hole?

It depends on the nearest point of relief. On the green you would place the ball, not drop it.

What do you call the edge of the green in golf?

It is called the rough. However if there is differing lengths of rough the one closest to the fairway is called the 'first cut'.

Can you place into the rough from the fairway when one club length is allowed on all fairways?

Yes, you are allowed to do this. However one club length is rarely allowed. It is usually preferred lies which is 6 inches. I cannot understand why you could place the ball in the rough when you can get a great lie in the fairway.

What happens if you hit a golf ball off the fairway?

Hitting a golf ball off the fairway results in it coming to rest in a less than desirable place. It could end up in a sand trap, a creek, or in the rough which is the higher cut grass adjacent to the fairway.

What is the meaning of a fairway in golf?

The fairway is the area up the centre of the hole which follows the line of the hole, it is closely mown.

What does it mean to say that a ball ends up in the rough?

It just means they have hit the ball into the longer grass at either side of the fairway. Playing out of the rough is a lot harder than playing from the fairway as it is harder to get a good strike on the ball and you won't get as much spin. And you can also catch a flyer which is where the ball flies of the club face and goes a lot farther than expected.
