Standard Local Rules

STANDARD LOCAL RULES AND CONDITIONS OF COMPETITION OF HARD CARD

The Rules of the United States Golf Association govern play. See applicable Notice to Competitors, Entry Application, and Code of Conduct for additional Local Rules and Optional Conditions.

RULE 3-3: DOUBT AS TO PROCEDURE – If a competitor is doubtful of his rights or the correct procedure during the play of a hole, he may without penalty, complete the hole with two balls. After the doubtful situation has risen and before taking further action, the competitor should announce to his marker or a fellow-competitor that he intends to play two balls and which ball he wishes to count if the Rules permit. If he fails to do so, the provisions of Rule 3-3b(ii) apply. The competitor MUST report the facts of the situation to the Committee before returning his scorecard, even if the score for the hole was the same with both balls played. If he fails to do so, he is disqualified.

OUT OF BOUNDS – Defined by the nearest inside points, at ground level, of white stakes and fence posts. Rule 27-1 Additionally, 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 AND LATERAL WATER HAZARD STAKES AND LINES – 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 stakes and lines are not present the margin of the hazard is defined by the water’s edge. When a lateral water hazard is defined on only one side, it is deemed to extend to infinity. 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 – Defined by white lines. Fire ant hills, French drains, and material piled for removal are deemed to be ground under repair.

INTEGRAL PARTS OF THE COURSE – include cables, rods, wires or wrappings when closely attached to trees; liners in bunkers and artificial walls and pilings when located in hazards, unless otherwise provided for in Notice to Competitors.

EMBEDDED BALL THROUGH THE GREEN – Optional Condition as prescribed in Appendix I, Part A, 3a is in effect.

SOD SEAMS/SEAMS OF CUT TURF – Except in a Hazard, sod seams (not sod itself) are deemed to be ground under repair, and relief is available under Rule 25-1 if the ball lies in or touches a sod seam or the sod seam interferes with the area of intended swing. All seams within the sodded area are considered the same seam. Optional Condition as prescribed in Appendix I, Part A, 3e is in effect.

STONES IN BUNKERS – Optional Condition as prescribed in Appendix I, Part A, 3f is in effect.

DISTANCE MEASURING DEVICES – The SNJG has adopted the Optional Condition as prescribed by Appendix I, Part A, 7. For all SNJG Tournaments players may use devices that measure distance only. The use of devices that gauge or measure other conditions that might affect a player’s play are not permitted. Breach of Condition: Disqualification.
