Ball Unplayable with Placing Mat RoG, Rule 28; The Swedish Golf Federation, Rules Committee, Protocol 2/2012 § 4B. Local Rule/Temporary Local Rule. New 2015-12-01.
Sometimes it might be almost impossible for a player, who proceeds under Rule 28 b or c, to drop a ball in a playable position, because the ball lay in a large, unplayable area. The players only option is then to proceed under Rule 28 a and drop a ball at the spot from which the original ball was last played.  
In exceptional cases when the Committee finds that a large 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, the Committee may establish a dropping zone - click to link. A player who proceeds under Rule 28 may then as, an additional option, drop a ball in the dropping zone. 
In very exeptional cases it can be almost impossible to create a suitable dropping zone due to dense bushes or very rocky ground and the Committee might then place a driving-range mat or a tee mat on a suitable frame on level ground and allow a player who deems his ball unplayable under Rule 28 as an additional option to place a ball on the mat in accordance with the procedure in Rule 20-3a. A ball lifted under this Rule might be cleaned
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. 

Suggested wording. This Rule shall stand under its own title. The redmarked penalty may be removed when the Rule is placed together with other local rules under a specific headline.
Ball Unplayable with Placing Mat
If a ball lies in or touches the area on hole ... whose margin is defined by ... and the player declares his ball unplayable he must: (i) proceed under Rule 28, or (ii) or as an additional option, with one stroke penalty, place a ball on the placing mat 
A player may place his ball only once, and it is in play when it has been placed (Rule 20-4). If the ball fails to come to rest on the spot where it is placed, Rule 20-3d applies. If the ball when placed comes to rest on the spot on which it is placed and it subsequently moves, there is no penalty and the ball must be played as it lies, unless the provisions of any other Rule apply. Penalty: Match play - Loss of hole; Stroke play - Two strokes.
