Please note the highlighted changes to the Local Rules. These changes are enforceable with immediate effect.
Additional temporary local rules will be displayed on the notice boards.
Stones in bunkers are movable obstructions.
All the bridges on the course and all artificially-surfaced paths and tracks are immovable obstructions from which relief MAY be obtained.
If a ball comes to rest within any area of newly planted trees or if such trees, their supports or cultivated earth bases interfere with a player’s stance or area of intended swing, the ball MUST be lifted, without penalty, and dropped in accordance with the procedure prescribed in Rule 24-2b.
All fixed sprinkler heads are immovable obstructions. In addition, if a ball lies off the putting green but not in a hazard and such an obstruction on or within two club-lengths of the putting green and within two club-lengths of the ball intervenes on the line of play between the ball and the hole, the player may take relief as follows:
The ball shall be lifted and dropped at the nearest point to where the ball lay which (a) is not nearer the hole, (b) avoids such intervention and (c) is not in a hazard or on a putting green. The ball may be cleaned when so lifted.
Goose or swan droppings and deep ruts, but not shallow indentations, made by course maintenance machinery are ground under repair from which the player MAY take relief.
The fenced plantations on the 7th and 15th holes, the fences surrounding them, all areas of newly laid turf, fresh seeding, divots that have just been filled with sand or seed, recent course works and all areas marked as Ground Under Repair or surrounded by a white line are ground under repair from which play is prohibited and from which the player MUST take relief.
The ditches to the left of the 1st hole tees and to the left of the 9th hole and the woodland beyond them and all unmarked ditches and ponds are defined as Lateral Water Hazards.
The mature woodlands to the left of the 7th hole and beyond the 16th hole, as defined by the fences, the driving range as defined by the white stakes and the patio surrounding the clubhouse are out of bounds.
A player may not obtain relief under these Local Rules if it is clearly unreasonable for the player to make a stroke because of interference by anything other than the conditions covered by these Local Rules.
