Local Rules

Unless otherwise noted, the penalty for breach of a Local Rule is a two stroke penalty.

 

Penalty Areas

  • All penalty areas are defined as red penalty areas. 

  • Dropping Zones: For balls in or lost in the penalty area on Grove #6 and Plantation #3, the player may take relief under one of the options in Rule 17 or as an additional option under penalty of one stroke, take relief by dropping a ball in and playing from the Dropping Zone (circular areas in the general area cut to fairway height or less).

 

Ground Under Repair

  • Includes ruts caused by vehicles on the course except in a penalty area.   

  • Includes cracks in the parts of the general area cut to fairway height or less but interference does not exist if this only interferes with the player’s stance.   

  • Includes the areas of stones to the immediate left and right to the cart path on Plantation #2 and Plantation #3 and to the right of the putting green on Plantation #3.

 

Optional Stroke and Distance Alternative

 

Out of Bounds

  • Defined by beyond any white stake or property fence defining the boundary of the course.

  • A ball coming to rest on or beyond a public road is out of bounds even if it comes to rest on another part of the course that is in bounds for other holes.

  • Defined by beyond the penalty area located behind the putting green on Plantation #9 because that area is not property of the club.

 

Distance Markers

  • Teeing Area yardage markers are measured to the center of the green.

  • Sprinkler heads in the general area are measured to the front of the green.

  • Fairway stakes (blue, white, red and gold) mark 200, 150, 100 and 50 yards, respectively, and are measured to the center of the green.
