1. Out of Bounds (Rule 18.2)
- Out of bounds is defined by the line between the course-side points at ground level of white stakes and fence posts. The clubhouse and workshop are also out of bounds and they are demarcated with white stakes.
2. Penalty Areas (Rule 17)
- Penalty areas are identified by red stakes or yellow stakes.
- The flowerbed between the sluit and boundary fence on the right of the 5 th hole as well as the flowerbed at the 7th dam form part of those penalty areas.
- Where an artificial wall surrounds the edge of a dam or other body of water, the penalty area is defined by the outside edge of the wall on the course side (the wall is considered to be part of the penalty area and must be treated as such)
3. Abnormal Course Conditions (including Immovable Obstructions) (Rule 16)
- Ground under repair is defined by any area encircled by a white line.
- Flower beds, play prohibited
All flower beds are no play zones and must be treated as an abnormal course condition. If a player’s ball lies in a flower bed or such a flower bed interferes with the player’s stance or area of intended swing, the player must take relief under Rule 16.1f.
- Protection of Young Trees
The young trees identified by blue stakes are no play zones and must be treated as an abnormal course condition. If a player’s ball lies anywhere on the course and it touches such a tree or such a tree interferes with the player’s stance or area of intended swing, the player must take relief under Rule 16.1f.
- All Roads and Paths Treated as Obstructions
All roads and paths on the course, even if not artificially-surfaced, are treated as immovable obstructions from which free relief is allowed under Rule 16.1.
4. Stopping play; Resuming play (Rule 5.7)
- A suspension of play for a dangerous situation will be signaled by one long blast of the siren. All golfers are to immediately leave the course and return to the clubhouse, halfway house or rain shelters. Resumption of play will be signaled by two short blasts of the siren.
