Play is governed by the USGA Rules of Golf, and by the following Local Rules:
AREAS OF REMOVED CART PATHS AND BURROWING ANIMAL HOLES
The areas where cart paths were removed and burrowing animal holes throughout the course are deemed to be an Abnormal Course Condition. A player may take relief without penalty from interference by an area of a removed cart path or burrowing animal holes, no closer to the hole.
ALTERNATIVE TO STROKE AND DISTANCE FOR LOST BALL OR BALL OUT OF BOUNDS
The Player may take relief by dropping the original ball or another ball in the Fairway, no closer to the hole. (Two-stroke penalty).
IMMOVABLE OBSTRUCTIONS CLOSE TO THE PUTTING GREEN
A player may take relief without penalty, if an Immovable Obstruction is, on the line of play, within two club-lengths of the Putting Green, and within two club-lengths of the ball.
OUT OF BOUNDS
Out of Bounds is defined by a line between the course-side points at ground level of white posts, except on Hole 11 where Out of Bounds is defined by the course-side edge of the cart path.
FREE DROP AREAS
The flower bed to the right of the Putting Green on Hole 7 and the flower bed/decorative rock behind the Putting Green of Hole 9 are deemed to be FREE Drop areas. The Area is defined by the outside edge of the maintained turf/rock and the course-side edge of the adjacent cart path.
The Penalty Areas on Holes 12, 15, and 16 are defined by the course-side edges of the concrete swales. The bridges are immovable obstructions within the Penalty Areas. For a ball lying outside of the Penalty Area, a player may take relief without penalty from the concrete or bridge interfering with the player’s area of intended stance and/or swing.
If a ball strikes a power line or supporting pole, the stroke is cancelled and a player MUST play a ball without penalty from where the previous stroke was made.
