LOCAL RULES

OUT OF BOUNDS-Defined by inside points at ground level, of large white stakes and fence posts. Rule 27-1. A ball which crosses a public road defined as out of bounds and comes to rest beyond that road is out of bounds, even though it may lie on another part of the course.

  • Water hazards are defined by yellow stakes or yellow lines. Rule 26-1.
  • Lateral Water hazards are defined by red stakes or red lines. Rule 26-1.
  • When both stakes and lines are used to define water and lateral water hazards, stakes identify hazards and lines define margins.

  • When water hazards and lateral water hazards are bounded by out of bounds, the hazard margin extends to and coincides with the out of bounds line.

GROUND UNDER REPAIR
