Point or Island Putting Green with Dropping Zone. RoG Rule 26, Appendix I Part A 6; Decision 33-2a/10. Local rule. Revised 2015-11-29. 
IN DEPTH From Decision 33-2a/10: "Q. A putting green is situated on an island (or on a point) in a lake. The water between the tee and the putting green is defined as a water hazard. The water on each side is marked as a lateral water hazard. How should the water behind the island be marked?
A. The Committee would be justified in marking the water behind the island as a lateral water hazard. Alternatively the Committee might consider defining the entire lake as a water hazard establishing a dropping zone and adopting a Local Rule giving a player whose ball is in the hazard the option of dropping a ball in the dropping zone, under penalty of one stroke." 
For more information see the section "How to mark a Golf Course". 

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

Point/ Island Putting Green with Dropping Zone
If a ball lies in or touches or if it is known or virtually certain that a ball that has not been found is in the water hazard/lateral water hazard at the putting green on hole ... the player may proceed under Rule 26, or as an additional option, drop a ball, under penalty of one stroke, in the dropping zone even when the dropping zone is nearer the hole than the point where the ball last crossed the margin of the water hazard/lateral water hazard.
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 A 6 Note.
Penalty: Match play - Loss of hole; Stroke play - Two strokes.
