Does anybody know it they were only allowing balls to dropped on the from the side of the stake/lined penalty from which the ball entered the penalty area.

I thought that this was the default and opposite side releief was only to be used as a local rule when conditions (such as next to OOB) existed:

The PGA Tour Hard Card in 2019 specified penalty areas where opposite side relief was available would be listed on the "notice to players". I don't know if it has changed since then.

were definitely only allowed to drop one side, wasnt sure under what ruling though (assumed rules of competition)

However I did find this for The PGA Australia / PGA Tour Australasia

2. Penalty Areas. Rule 17.

(a) Opposite Side Same Distance Relief for Red Penalty Areas. The weekly Local Rules sheet will specify which (if any) red Penalty Areas have a same distance option on the opposite side. Model Local Rule B-2.1 will apply only to the Penalty Areas that are listed.

(b) Opposite Side Relief Where Ball Last Crossed Edge of Penalty Area Where the Edge and the Boundary of the Course Coincide. When a player’s ball last crossed the edge of a Penalty Area where the edge of the Penalty Area and a boundary of the course coincide, that edge is deemed red and opposite side relief is available under Model Local Rule B-2.1.

From that

b. Opposite side relief is available for red penalty areas listed on the applicable “Notice to Players”.

So from that I presume that for every event players get the said notice which lets them no if it is in or out.
