The winter rules of golf are very simple. Most golf courses play preferred lies through the green, this is where you can pick up your ball, clean it and replace it within six inches of its' original position, no nearer the hole. In the winter you also get relief from area which have been affected by the golf course machinery. Some golf clubs play preferred lies in the fairway and then lift clean and drop in the rough, and others only play relief from a plugged ball in the rough.

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 golf club do we use in the rough?

Depending on how the ball is sitting you can use any club. The problem with rough is that it has a tendancy to grap the face of the club in the downswing and closing so you get no elevation when you hit the ball, and sometimes the ball barely gets out of the rough. In very thick rough you are best taking a wedge and just advance the ball down the fairway as far as you can.

Golf club used in the rough?

On regular rough, some will use a recovery wood, which are usually equal to a low iron loft wise, but the extra strength of a recovery can help to get out of rough and keep a good amount of distance. With heavier rough, sometimes you'll need to go up to a high based iron, maybe a PW or a SW, if it's overly thick.
