Please be aware of the following Local Rules:-

Temporary Local Rule
Through the green, Drainage Seams are deemed to be an Abnormal Ground Condition. However, interference by a seam with the player’s stance is deemed not to be, of itself, interference under Rule 25-1. If the ball lies in or touches the seam or the seam interferes with the area of intended swing, relief is available under Rule 25-1.
A player may take relief as follows: The player must lift the ball and drop it, without penalty, within one club length of and not nearer the hole than the nearest point of relief.
PENALTY FOR BREACH OF LOCAL RULE:
Match Play – Loss of Hole Stroke Play – Two Strokes
