Ground Under Repair with Dropping Zone. RoG Definitions, Ground Under Repair; Rule 25-1; Rule 33-2(iii); Appendix 1 Part A 6. Temporary Local Rule. Revised 2015-12-01.
IN DEPTH:
 When the Committee declares an area as ground under repair it may be defined by blue stakes or a white, continuous sprayline. There is usually no need for a Local Rule. However, it may sometimes be impossible for a player, who has elected to proceed under Rule 25-1, to make a stroke from the nearest point of relief. In that case the Committee may establish dropping zones to give the player a playable option.

Suggested wording. The two finishing, red-coloured sentences may be reoved. The headline and the penalty may be removed when this Rule is placed together with other local rules under a specific headline.  

Ground Under Repair (GUR) with Dropping Zone/Zones
The area on hole ... which limit is defined by ... is ground under repair. If a ball lies in the area or if it interferes with the players stance or the area of his intended swing the player may take relief under Rule 25-1 or as an additional option, drop a ball in the dropping zone/the nearest dropping zone 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 redropping see Rule 20-2 and Appendix 1 Part B 6 Note. 
Penalty: Matchplay - Loss of hole; Stroke play - Two strokes.
