Ask Linda 1903-Walk out of bounds

If a golf player walks out of bounds on a course is she penalised other than when she plays a ball in bounds? 
Lulu from Leicester, UK

Dear Lulu,

There are no restrictions in the Rules on where a golfer may walk. She may even stand out of bounds to hit a ball that lies in bounds.

However, if you encounter a fence or a Private Property, No Trespassing sign, common courtesy would dictate that you not walk on someone’s property.
