RULES OF PLAY

General Points
Before commencing your round:
Read the Local Rules on the score card.
Put an identification mark on your ball. Many golfers play the same brand of ball and if you can’t identify your ball, it’s lost.
Count your clubs. You are allowed a maximum of 14 clubs.

Teeing Off
Tee off between and not in front of the tee markers. You may tee off up to two club-lengths behind the front line of the tee-markers.

Playing the Ball
Play the ball as it lies. Don’t improve your lie, the area of your intended swing or your line of play by moving, bending or breaking anything fixed or growing except in fairly taking your stance or making your swing.
If your ball lies in a bunker or a water hazard, don’t touch the ground in the bunker, or the ground in the water hazard, before your downswing.

On the Putting Green
You may mark, lift and clean your ball on the putting green. Always replace it on the exact spot.

Lifting, Dropping and Placing the ball
When dropping, stand erect, hold the ball at shoulder height and arm’s length and drop it. If a dropped ball strikes you or your partner, caddie or equipment, it must be re-dropped without penalty.

Obstructions

Moveable obstructions (e.g. rakes, tin cans etc.) anywhere on the course may be moved. If the ball moves it must be replaced without penalty.
If an immovable obstruction (e.g. a water fountain) interferes with your stance or swing, you may drop the ball within one club-length of the nearest point of relief not nearer the whole.

Conclusion
Remember, a good score may be spoiled, or a match lost, due to a penalty incurred through ignorance or confusion concerning the Rules.
