Rule Tip of the Month – November




  • Green-side Sprinklers:  Free relief is available from intervention by immovable obstructions (e.g. sprinkler heads, drain grates or valve box covers) within two club-lengths of the green when the ball lies off the green, but not in a hazard, and is within two club-lengths of the obstruction.
    • You do not have to be putting to utilize this local rule.
  • Embedded Balls through the green may be lifted, cleaned and dropped no nearer the hole.
    • This is includes the rough and not just the fairway. You may not use this local rule in a hazard.
