USGA Rules of Golf will govern all play except as modified by the following Local Rules
1. Obstructions (Rule 24): In addition to those defined in the Rules of Golf, the directional markers in the middle of the fairways on each par-4 and par-5 hole are deemed to be movable obstructions. Concrete remnant bunkers/buildings and staked and/or roped trees that interfere with lie of the ball, stance, and/or areas of intended swing, are to be treated as immovable obstruction (free relief).
2. Abnormal Ground Conditions (Ground Under Repair) (Rule 25): The nursery green right of holes #10 and #13 is considered to be an abnormal ground condition (free relief). Through the green, areas that have exposed rock for drainage purposes are to be treated as abnormal ground conditions (free relief). Note: The barked and landscaped areas are considered integral parts of the course (no relief).
3. Embedded Ball (Rule 25-2) is extended to “through the green” (Appendix I): Through the green a ball embedded in its own pitch-mark in the ground, other than sand, may be lifted without penalty, cleaned and dropped as near as possible to where it lay but not nearer the hole.
4. Water Hazards (Rule 26): Water hazards are identified by yellow stakes and defined by yellow lines. (Hole #7) NOTE: As an additional option under Rule 26, a “drop area” has been added on hole #7. Lateral water hazards are identified by red stakes and defined by red lines. (Holes #4, 6, 9, 10, 12 and 14)
5. Out of Bounds (Rule 27): Defined by the inside edge at ground level of white stakes and/or white PVC pipes. Additionally, on hole #13 out of bounds is defined by the inside edge of the entrance road and the road to the maintenance area. On holes #14 and #15, out of bounds is defined as the inside edge of the entry road right of hole #14 and left of hole #15.
6. Pace of Play: To make the game more enjoyable for all it is the responsibility of each player to play at a “considerate pace.” Your position on the golf course is directly behind the group in front of you, not directly in front of the group behind you.
