Ball Unplayable with Dropping Zone. RoG, Rule 28, Appendix I Part A 6. Local Rule/Temporary Local Rule. Revised 2015-11-29. 
IN DEPTH:  When the Committee finds that an area is unplayable and it is undesirable (e.g. for safety reasons) that a player, who proceeds under Rule 28 a, returns to the spot from where the original ball was last played or when there are walls, protective screens, fences or other obstacles declared to be an integral part of the course situated in such a way that they surround a putting green the Committee may establish dropping zones
A player who proceeds under Rule 28 may then as, an additional option, drop a ball in the dropping zone. Note: When the Committee uses this local rule the area from which it is permitted to drop a ball in a dropping zone must be clearly defined e.g. by a fence or a road or must the object from which the player takes relief under Rule 28 be specified e.g "the electric fence/stone wall/out of bounds fence/protective net at the ... on hole ... ."

Suggested wording. The two finishing, red-coloured sentences may be reoved. This rule shall always be placed under its own headline.    

Ball Unplayable with Dropping Zone/Zones
If a ball lies in or touches the area on hole ... which margin is defined by .../lies near ... on hole ... and the player deems his ball unplayable, the player may/must either proceed under Rule 28 or as an additional option drop a ball in the dropping zone/the dropping zone nearest to where the ball originally lay even when the dropping zone is nearer the hole than where the ball originally lay.
When dropping in a dropping zone the dropped ball must first strike a part of the course within the dropping zone. The dropped ball is in play if it comes to rest within two club-lengths of the spot where it first struck a part of the course even if it rolls out of the dropping zone or nearer the hole.  Dropping and re-dropping see Rule 20-2 and Appendix 1 Part A 6 Note. 

Penalty: Match play - Loss of hole; Stroke play - Two strokes.
