Local Rules

When applying these rules, player integrity will be relied upon to the point where a player’s ‘reasonable judgement’ will be trusted on things like estimating/measuring a spot, point, line, area or distance.

  1. Boundaries​ ​and​ ​Out​ ​of​ ​Bounds
    • All fences and walls forming clearly definable boundaries to the course.
    • All out of bounds areas, both internal and external will be marked with white markers.
    • Marked area on r.h.s. of 3rd hole is only out of bounds when playing that hole
      5th/6th holes – bridle path is out of bounds
      Marked area on r.h.s. of 14th hole is only out of bounds when playing that hole.
    • Balls out of bounds
      A new ball may be played from where the previous stroke was made (rule 14.6) for one penalty stroke. Alternatively, in NON QUALIFYING competitions, a ball may be dropped in bounds in the vicinity of where the ball has gone out of bounds, with a two stroke penalty.
