SALE GOLF CLUB
TEMPORARY LOCAL WINTER RULES
Please note that until further notice, the following conditions apply:-
1. Local Rule - Lift Clean and Place
A ball lying on any closely mown area may, without penalty, be moved or may be lifted, cleaned if so desired, and placed, within six inches of where it originally lay, no nearer the hole. After the ball has been so moved or placed, it is in play. Closely mown means cut to fairway height or less.
Whilst the six inch rule would apply to the first perimeter cut on greens it does not apply to mounds around greens and bunker surrounds.
2. Local Rule - Winter Greens
Any ball coming to rest on the Temporary Winter Green when playing the Permanent Green or on the Permanent Green when playing the Temporary Winter Green must either:
Be lifted, cleaned if required and dropped within one club length of the nearest point off the Green but not nearer the hole.
Using the putter only be played as it lies after cleaning if required.
3. Local Rule - Aeration holes or lines
If a ball comes to rest in an aeration hole or line, the player may, without penalty, lift the ball and clean it. Through the green, the player shall drop the ball as near as possible to where it lay, but not nearer the hole. On the putting green, the player shall place the ball at the nearest spot not nearer the hole, which avoids such a situation.
4. Local Rule - GUR - Play Prohibited
All repaired / new drain lines, newly turfed or seeded areas or any area marked with a white line, including areas of newly planted trees, are declared GUR from which play is prohibited and the player should proceed in accordance with Rule 25-1.
