Rule 26 Water Hazard
A "water hazard" is any sea, lake, pond, river, ditch, surface drainage ditch or other open water course (whether or not containing water) and anything of a similar nature.
Rule 26 Note 1:
Water hazards (other than lateral water hazards) should be defined by yellow stakes or lines.
Rule 26 Note 2:
The committee may make a local rule prohibiting play from an environmentally sensitive area which has been defined as a water hazard.
A " lateral water hazard"
is a water hazard or that part of a water hazard so situated that is not possible or is deemed by the committee to be impracticable to drop a ball behind the water hazard in accordance with rule 26-1b. Lateral water hazards should be distinctively marked with a red stake.
If a ball is in or is lost in a water hazard (whether the ball lies in the water or not), the player may under penalty of one stroke:
a. Play a ball as nearly as possible at the spot from which the original ball was
last played (see rule 20-5); or
b. Drop a ball behind the water hazard, keeping the point at which the original ball last crossed the margin of the water hazard directly between the hole and the spot on which the ball is dropped, with no limit to how far behind the water hazard the ball maybe dropped; or
c. As additional options available only if the ball last crossed the margin of a lateral water hazard, drop a ball outside the water hazard within two club-lengths of and not nearer the hole than (i) the point where the original ball last crossed the margin of the water hazard or (ii) a point on the opposite margin of the water hazard equidistant from the hole.
The ball may be cleaned when lifted under this rule.
Rule 27 Ball Lost or Out of Bounds

c. The player has played any stroke with a provisional ball from the place where the original ball is likely to be or from a point nearer the hole than that place, whereupon the provisional ball becomes the ball in play. "Out of Bounds" Is beyond the boundaries of the course or any part of the course so marked by the committee. Usually identified with white stakes or lines.
Rule 27-1 Ball Lost or Out of Bounds
If a ball is lost or is out of bounds, the player shall play a ball, under penalty of one stroke, as nearly as possible at the spot from which the original ball was last played (see rules 20-5). Exceptions: 1. If there is reasonable evidence that the original ball is lost in a water hazard, the player shall proceed in accordance with rule 26-1. 2. If there is reasonable evidence that the original ball is lost in an immovable obstruction (rule24-2c) or an abnormal ground condition (rule 25-1c) the player may proceed under the applicable rule.

You may go back as far as you want on that line.
