Seckford Golf Club - Local Rules

1. Out of Bounds (Rule 27) A ball is out of bounds if it is beyond the boundaries of the course defined by white posts, fences, hedges or ditches bounding the course. Internal out of bounds is marked by white posts on the left hand side of the 18th fairway when playing the 18th hole only.

If such a tree interferes with the player's stance or the area of their intended swing the ball MUST be lifted, without penalty and dropped in accordance with procedures prescribed in Rule 24-2b (immovable obstructions). The ball may be cleaned when so lifted. Exception:- A player may not obtain relief under this Local Rule if (a) it is clearly unreasonable for them to make a stroke because of anything other than the tree or (b) interference by the tree would occur only through use of an unnecessarily abnormal stance, swing or direction of play.
