LOCAL RULES

1.      Out of Bounds

Beyond any fence, white stakes or white line defining the boundary of the course. A ball is out of bounds when all of it lies on the line.

Note1: Where out of bounds is defined by white stakes or fence posts (excluding angled supports), the line joining the nearest inside points at the ground level of such stakes or posts defines the boundary.

2.      Distance markings in the middle of the fairway to the front of the green: 50, 100, 150, 200 meters

 

3.      Areas with work in progress and newly seeded areas are considered ground under repair from which play is prohibited. Relief must be taken under Rule 25-1. All areas bounded by a white line or indicated by blue stakes defined as GUR. You may have a relief under rule 25-1.

 

4.      Large stone walls on the hole no. 7, 17 are integral parts of the course.

 

5.      Stones in bunkers are movable obstructions. Rule 24-1 applies.

 

6.      Distance markers (only square metal plates on the fairways), sprinkler heads, roads, stone and car paths as well as bridges are immovable obstructions. Rule 24-1 applies. (All stakes except O.B. are movable obstructions.)

 

7.      All young trees with either a stake, mesh wire, if interfering with a player’s stance or swing the ball must be lifted and dropped within one club length from the nearest point of relief but not nearer the hole without penalty in accordance with Rule 24-2b.

 

8.      The entire lake at the 5th and 12th hole is defined as a water hazard. Players have the option when a ball lies in the hazard of dropping in the dropping zone under penalty of one stroke.

 

9.      Pace of Play

Each hole has been given a maximum completion time based upon the length and difficulty of the hole. The maximum time allotted for the completion of 18 holes will be available prior to play. A group will be considered to be “out of position” if, at any time during the round, the group’s cumulative time exceeds the time allowed for the number of holes completed. If a decision is taken to time the group, each player in the group will be subject to individual timing by a referee. The penalty for breaching the time allocated per stroke: 1 bad time: official warning, 2 bad times: one stroke, 3 bad times: further two strokes, 4 bad times: disqualification.

 

10.   On a closely-mown area, rocks in the undersoil, when visible on the surface are deemed to be ground under repair. If the ball lies in or touches a rock or the rock interferes with the intended swing, relief is available under Rule 25-1. However, interference by a rock with the player's stance is deemed not to be, of itself, interference under Rule 25-1.

11.   Distance-Measuring Devices

For all play at this course, a player may obtain distance information by use of a distance-measuring device. If, during a stipulated round, a player uses a distance-measuring device to gauge or measure other conditions that might affect his play (e.g. elevation changes, wind speed, etc.), the player is in breach of Rule 14-3.

 

12.   Temporary Immovable Obstructions -TIO-

Scoreboards, promotion boards, flags, grand stands, sheets and the like anywhere on the course are temporary immovable obstructions (TIO). To theese the specimen Local Rule in the Rules of Golf is in effect. Interference by a TIO occurs also when the TIO intervenes directly between the player’s ball and the hole and is on his line of play. A player may obtain relief under Rule 24 from interference by a TIO, including a TIO that is out of bounds. If the ball lies through the green, the point on the course nearest to where the ball lies must be determined that (a) is not nearer the hole, (b) avoids interference, and (c) is not in a hazard or on a putting green. If the ball is in a hazard, relief may be taken without penalty only within the hazard, otherwise the player may proceed under the appropriate rule pertaining to the hazard.

 

13. PLAYING BALL PROVISIONALLY UNDER RULE 26-1 ON HOLE 14

If there is doubt whether a ball is in or is lost in the lateral water hazard on hole 14th, the player may play another ball provisionally under any of the applicable options in Rule 26-1. If the original ball is found outside the water hazard, the player must continue play with it.

If the original ball is found in the water hazard, the player may either play the original ball as it lies or continue with the ball played provisionally under Rule 26-1.

If the original ball is not found or identified within the five-minutes search period, the player must continue with the ball played provisionally.

 

14. Suspension of Play due to a Dangerous Situation

The specimen condition in the Rules of Golf is in effect.

Note: A suspension of play for a dangerous situation will be signalled by a prolonged note of a horn. All other suspensions will be signalled by three consecutive short notes of a horn repeated. In either case, resumption of play will be signalled by two short notes of a horn repeated.
