Drop where it went out of bounds and take two stroke penalty. Local group rules are Bs. Golf isn’t 8 ball.
The penalty for for a ball out of bounds is stroke and distance. You cannot drop a ball where your ball went out of bounds. You must replay the shot from where it was originally played and add one stroke. If you think that your ball might be lost or out of bounds, you should play a provisional ball.

Actually, under the new rules revision, there is permission for a local rule that states, in essence, "if you ball is out of bounds or lost, find the place that it went out or is presumed lost. You can drop a ball, ON THE FAIRWAY, within 1 club length of the edge of the fairway at an equidistant point to where it went OB, 2 stroke penaly"

The pro tours do not use this rule, the Golf Channel tour does not, but men's and ladies day here does.

I don't like it, it wanders too far away from the essence of the game, but it is designed solely to speed up play. Now if we could just get golfers to respect the 3 minute search rule.....
