LOCAL RULES                             


Out of Bounds is indicated by white posts and by the fence surrounding the driving range.

A ball crossing a public road and landing on the other part of the course is out of bounds (holes 9, 10, 14, 16). (Rule 27-1.b. applies).


Stones in bunkers are movable obstructions (Rule 24-1 applies)


Ball in water hazard holes 6, 15, 16 and 18 If there is doubt whether a ball is in or is lost in the water hazard, 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 wit hit.

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.


Distance-Measuring Devices For all play at this course a player may obtain 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.


Rules 18-2, 18-3 and 20-1 are modified as follows: When a player’s ball lies on the putting green, there is no penalty if the ball or ball-marker is accidentally moved by the player, his partner, his opponent or any of their caddies or equipment. The moved ball or ball-marker must be replaced as provided in Rules 18-2, 18-3 and 20-1. This Local Rule applies only when the player’s ball or ball-marker lies on the putting green and any movement is accidental. Note: If it is determined that a player’s ball on the putting green was moved as a result of wind, water or some other natural cause such as the effects of gravity, the ball must be played as it lies from its new location. A ball-marker moved in such circumstances is replaced.”   Hole 8 If a ball comes to rest in G.U.R. at the right side and is found the player continues according Rule 25-1.b. If a ball comes to rest in this G.U.R. but can’t be found, the player may drop a ball in the Dropping Zone (DZ). Searching for the ball is not required and may be done for maximum 5 minutes. In both cases no penalty.
