Local Rules

A player may obtain relief from interference by an immovable obstruction without penalty in the following circumstances:

1. If the ball lies through the green, the point on the course, nearest to where the ball lies, shall be determined which is not nearer the hole, avoids the interference and is not in a hazard or in the putting green. The player shall lift the ball and drop it within one club length of the point thus determined.

2.If the ball strikes the power lines, the player must disregard the stroke, abondon the ball and play another ball as near to the spot from which the original ball was played.

3. If a staked tree, pylon, or pylon base interferes with a playerís stance or the area of his intended swing, the ball must be lifted without penalty and dropped. The ball may be cleaned when so lifted.
