Players may take relief for interference with stance, lie, or area of intended swing. Players may not take relief for “line of sight” interference. Hole #14 – The rock wall left of the green is considered an integral part of the golf course, NO RELIEF
DOUBT AS TO PROCEDURE: If a competitor is doubtful of his rights or the correct procedure during the play of a hole, he may, without penalty, complete play of the hole with two balls. The player must announce his intention to his fellow competitors and explain which of the balls he wishes to count if the Rules permit. The competitor MUST report the facts of the situation to the Committee before turning in his score card. IF HE FAILS TO DO SO HE IS DISQUALIFIED.
BUNKER: Mark, Lift, Clean, and Drop in a Bunker – A ball that comes to rest in a bunker may be marked, lifted, cleaned and dropped within one club length, no nearer the hole. The ball must be dropped from knee height and both land in and come to rest within the relief area within the bunker. The area in which a player intends to drop may not be improved in any way, including smoothing, raking, kicking or any other action that will materially improve the conditions of the stroke.
FLAGSTICK: The Flagstick should not be removed and is to remain in the hole at all times. Rule 13.2 is modified in this way: A player is prohibited from making a stroke with the flagstick removed from the hole. Note: Touching the flagstick, the inadvertent removal and subsequent replacement of the flagstick is not of itself a penalty. First Breach – One Penalty Stroke, Second Breach – Two Penalty Stroke, Third Breach – Disqualification
