Club Rules

Dear Members;

 

LOCAL RULE – DAFFODILS  

 

The areas where daffodils are growing are deemed to be Ground under Repair from which play is prohibited. Where a ball comes to rest in such a manner as the daffodils interfere with the swing or stance a player must take relief in accordance with Rule 25-1.

 

The player may take relief as a drop within one club length of and not nearer the hole than the nearest point of relief.

 

Penalty for breach of rule: Match play – Loss of hole; Stroke play – Two strokes

 

Accidental Movement of a Ball on a Putting Green

 

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.”
