Unmarked Ditches/Ponds are Lateral Water Hazards. RoG, Definitions Water Hazard and Lateral Water Hazard; Decision 26/3 and Decision 33-2a/4 and GoRaC 3.4. Local Rule. Revised 2015-02-08.
IN DEPTH: Unmarked ditches and ponds are by definition water hazards. On many golf courses there are lakes, ponds, ditches, surface drainage ditches et.c in deep rough far away from the closely-mown areas (fairway) which are seldom in play. To simplify the upkeep of markers, minimize the players chanses to play from a wrong place and to speed up play the Committee may declare that all unmarked ditches and ponds are lateral water hazards
Note: Water hazards and lateral water hazards which are frequently in play should always be marked. 

More information will be found in the section "How to mark a Golf Course".
