New Temporary Local Rule

In the current hot weather conditions a series of cracks and drainage slits are quite extensive and are affecting fair play and as a consequence a new temporary local rule has been introduced with immediate effect.
Cracks and Drainage Slits
Cracks in the ground or drainage slits, through the green, are deemed to be ground under repair. If a player's ball lies in such a condition, or if such a condition interferes with the area of a player's intended swing, the player may take relief under Rule 25-1.

Note - Relief is not available for interference to a player's stance by such a condition. If a ball is lost in such a condition a substitute ball may be dropped without penalty in accordance with Rule 25-1.

This temporary local rule should also be read in conjuction with the existing temporary local rule providing relief to conditions arising from the drainage scheme. (see below)

Local Rule : Drainage works and Miscellaneous Course Damage

Given the general course conditions following the drainage works in 2017/18 there is a need to introduce a temporary local rule to provide relief in areas which may take some time to recover.

All course renovation works, newly seeded areas, drainage disruption and damage caused by heavy equipment is ground under repair even if not so marked with white lines.

If a player's ball lies in such a condition, or if such a condition interferes with the player's stance or area of intended swing the player must take relief under
Rule 25-1b(1): Abnormal Ground Conditions - Relief. The player must lift their ball and drop it without penalty within one club length of the nearest point of relief not nearer the hole.

Any roped off areas are retained for traffic management purposes but not marked as GUR.

REMINDER....An embedded ball on closely mown areas can be cleaned and dropped, a full explanation can be found here
