Here on the Costa’s golf is one of the biggest leisure time activities for both tourists and resident alike and with this in mind we have secured the services of Mike Probert of Costa Blanca Green Fee Services to provide a weekly round up of local golfing events and topics and in conjunction with us at THE LEADER will provide discounted golf prices to all of our readers and run our golf competitions.
Do you know your golf rules? – Continued
Last week we highlighted a rules query in respect of relief from sprinklers on the aprons of greens and in general the ruling is as follows:
“Under the rules of golf issued by the Royal and ancient RULE 24/2 covers this exact circumstance and in general if sprinkler head is positioned with two clubs length of the putting surface and if a players ball is situated within two club lengths of the said sprinkler head and if this sprinkler head impedes the players stance or shot, then the player is entitled to take relief within one club length but not nearer the hole”
Now you never know just who reads our regular golf column but I received a nice e-mail from John Marshall who is a golf referee in Sweden and he asked for me to notify you of a key addendum to the above rule namely
“The above MUST also be covered by a local rule and if no local rule then no relief”
Most courses work closely in line with the R&A rules but all players should check the local rules board to ensure the application of the above rule in respect of relief from sprinklers.
We at THE LEADER are committed to providing to our golfing readers affordable golf without the need to join a club or apply for a card but simply contact the number below to have instant access to discounted golf prices, many of which are exclusive to us.
