Local Golf Course Rules

Camposol Club de Golf Rules

  1. Fairways – there are preferred lies (pick, place and clean within 6 inches/15 cms) on all fairways and cut grass areas e.g. green aprons
  2. Bunkers – in all bunkers a player may pick up and clean the ball, rake and replace within 6 inches/15 cms
  3. New desert or Planted areas, including those planted on or near the fairway and also in the brown stony areas e.g. right of 11th and 18th fairways – free relief must be taken if a tree or shrub interferes with a player’s stance or swing which might result in damage to the tree, shrub etc with the relief area being one club length no nearer the hole
  4. Stony/Scrubland areas such as (but not exclusively) left of the 7th, 11th, 12th, 14th or 17th holes and
    right of the 9th hole – no free relief can be taken in these areas, the ball must be played as it lies or a penalty drop taken as an unplayable lie
  5. Wooden sleepers and Edging stones which form the border or boundary of a fairway, path or pond or water feature and are within the general area of the course (e.g. not in a penalty area) are classed as an immovable obstruction and so free relief is available where a ball comes to rest touching such an item or where there is interference with a players swing or stance
  6. Perimeter fence/wall – holes 2, 3 and 4
    a. if a player’s ball is lying between the fence or wall on the left side of the path on holes 2, 3 or 4 then they may take free relief on the fairway side of the path, with the relief area being one club length no
    nearer the hole
  7. Penalty areas are defined by a line (real or imaginary) between the course-side points at ground level of red or yellow stakes, markers or painted lines. A ball is in a penalty area when any part of it touches or is beyond the edge of this line
  8. Out of bounds or Lost ball – when a player’s ball has not been found or is known or virtually certain to be out of bounds, the player may proceed as follows:

PLEASE REFER TO FULL VERSION OF LOCAL CAMPOSOL RULES

a. drop the ball in the vicinity of where the ball is lost or last crossed out of bounds (including the nearest fairway area) not nearer the hole, under a two-stroke penalty (e.g. playing four for your next shot)
b. play a provisional ball, which automatically becomes your ball in play unless you find your original ball in-bounds within 3 minutes, under stroke and distance penalty (e.g. playing three off the tee)
c. out of bounds is defined by a line (real or imaginary) between the course-side points at ground level of white stakes or painted lines and course boundary fences or markers. A ball is out of bounds when the whole of the ball is over this line.

  1. Distance measuring devices are allowed during general play and all competitions but the device must comply with the restrictions in rule 4.3a (1)
  2. Distance markers – the white (200), yellow (150), red (100) and on some short holes blue (50) distance markers are to the middle of the green in metres and are classed as movable objects
  3. Lava rocks – all areas of lava rocks are designated as G.U.R. unless otherwise indicated. The player must obtain free relief with the relief area being one club length no nearer the hole or in a designated drop zone
  4. Tarmac and Red shale paths – free relief may be taken from all tarmac and red shale paths with the relief area being one club length no nearer the hole
  5. Concrete drainage ditches – free relief may be taken from all concrete drainage ditches (except those within penalty areas) with the relief area being one club length no nearer the hole
  6. 2nd Hole
    a. the ditch is defined as a yellow penalty area by yellow stakes either side of the bridge
    b. the bridge in the ditch is defined as a no play zone so if your ball lands on the bridge or it interferes with your swing or stance within the limits of the penalty area you must take penalty relief under rule
    17.1e
    c. if the bridge interferes with your swing, stance or line of sight, when outside of the penalty area, then free relief may be taken with the relief area being one club length no nearer the hole. This free relief also applies once you have taken penalty relief
