Relief from Tree Roots


The Match Committee have introduced a new Local Rule starting the 1st of December 2019

"RELEF FROM TREE ROOTS THROUGH THE GREEN - In consultation with your marker, and if appropriate, relief may be taken backwards to the nearest point of relief, then place the ball within 30cm of that point. If relief is taken and the player fails to consult with their marker it will result in a 2 stroke penalty."

This rule has been implemented for safety reasons as tree roots have become a bit of a problem

This rule is in trial and feedback is welcome
