Temporary Local Rules

Temporary local rules that are dependent upon course conditions, e.g. preferred lies, are displayed on the noticeboard on the pro shop wall next to the practice putting green and on the course status shown on the club website and Club V1 app. The area where preferred lies may be used (e.g. in the general area or closely mown areas in the general area) will be specified.

Preferred Lies
When preferred lies are in force, a ball may be lifted without penalty and cleaned. Before lifting the ball, the player must mark its position. Having lifted the ball, they must place it on a spot within six inches of and not nearer the hole than where it originally lay, that is not in a hazard and not on a putting green. Penalty for breach of local rule : 2 strokes.

Winter Bunker Rules
A ball lying in a bunker may be lifted without penalty. Before lifting the ball, the player must mark its position. Having lifted the ball, they can rake a small area and then place the ball on a spot in the newly raked area within six inches of and not nearer the hole than where it originally lay, Penalty for breach of local rule: 2 strokes.
A player taking relief under a Rule (e.g. casual water) must first abide by that Rule prior to applying the above procedure.

18th Hole Out of Bounds
The Out of Bounds (OOB) starts just past the bell on the left and finishes at the back of the White tee on the 1st hole. The start and end of the OOB is a 90 degree angle to the left of the first and last posts, to the white posts in the trees.
