Penalty for breach of local rules
Stroke Play – Two shots
Match Play – Loss of hole
OUR TEMPORARY LOCAL RULES
Relief may be taken without penalty, within one club length from the nearest point of relief and not nearer the hole when a ball is lying on drainage channel workings across the 1st, 2nd, 9th and 10th fairways. This also applies to the drainage channel to the right of the 10th green.
Through the green – a ball that comes to rest in or on an aeration hole may be lifted without penalty and dropped as near as possible to the spot where it lay but not nearer the hole. The ball when dropped must first strike a part of the course through the green.
On the putting green – a ball that comes to rest in or on an aeration hole may be lifted without penalty and replaced at the nearest point not nearer the hole that avoids the situation.
Through the green means - The whole area of the course except:
1) The teeing ground and putting surface of the hole being played
2) Penalty areas
A ball lying on or having an area of damaged green between the ball and the intended line of putt may be marked and replaced (6 inches to the left or right) not nearer the hole without penalty.
When preferred lies are in operation players may use mats on closely mown areas. This is effective from the 1st October to the 31st March.
BALLS LANDING ON TEES IN WINTER
To prevent damage to tees (usually the ladies tees), when a ball in play lands on any tee the following local rule will apply:
RULE: A ball coming to rest on any tee MUST be lifted, cleaned and dropped without penalty at the nearest point of complete relief not nearer the hole.
This rule will only apply until we revert to playing competitions off white tees.
