- Hole #1 - Driving Range is Out of Bounds. If the fence
or poles interfere with your swing or stance you may take an unplayable lie, with a
one stroke penalty, or play it as it lies. Out of Bounds marked by white stakes begin
about 230 yards from the back tee and extend past #1 green.
- Hole #2 - Waste area: you may ground your club, remove
loose impediments, and take practice swings.
- Hole #3 - Fence behind green is an Immovable Obstruction.
You may take relief, and one club length, no closer to the hole. No penalty. A drop
area may be provided. If so, you MUST USE this option.
- Hole #5 - Left side of fairway and green is Out of
Bounds. White stakes or lines define boundary.
- Hole #6 - Left side of fairway extending past the
green, along the back of the green to hole 7 tee is Lateral Water Hazard, defined
by red paint line. You may, if you hit your ball into this area, drop a ball within
two club lengths of where your ball last crossed the margin of the hazard,
with a one stroke penalty. The right side of the fairway is also Lateral Water
Hazard. The railroad ties on the right side of the fairway are deemed to be Immovable
Obstructions. You get nearest point of relief plus one club length, no penalty.
While playing this hole you may also improve the lie of your ball 12 inches with the

except in a hazard or on the putting green).

restricted swing due to the poplar trees. When dropping the ball, it
can roll two club lengths. If this puts you back in the trees, that ball is in play.
Fence located by green is free relief. You may take stance and one club length.

Golfers, this may seem like a lot rules. Each one
of these rules is found in the USGA rules book. While these leagues are not PGA
tour events, we still need to play by the rules to ensure that everyone plays the
same. If you know the rules they can help you in many situations. Please take the
time to obtain a copy of The Rules of Golf, and to read it. You can also go online
and get a copy. Please don't hesitate to ask me any questions you might have. I
will help you look it up and find the answer.
This rules sheet may be modified and changed at any time due to course conditions.
