Bexleyheath Golf Club Local Rules

Out of Bounds;
Beyond all perimeter fences, railings, walls and roads. The concrete and paving surrounds of the clubhouse.
Beyond the white marker posts adjacent to the greenkeepers’ compound to the right of the first fairway between the clubhouse and the gardens. The area of land between the sleepers supporting the 2nd tee and the course boundary fence as indicated by the white marker posts.
Restricted approach to certain holes
When playing the 8th / 17th holes, a ball passing to the right of the white marker post on the bank of the 5th /14th hole and coming to rest above a line extending from the white marker post to the blue marker post and beyond (the w-b line) is considered out of bounds. A ball coming to rest below the w-b line is considered not to have reached the white post. Any ball not reaching the white post, it must be played to the left of the white post.
A ball which passes correctly to the left of the white marker post but then comes to rest below the w-b line must be played to the left hand side of the blue and white striped post situated on the top of the bank. If it passes to the right of the blue and white striped post, it is considered out of bounds. A ball coming to rest above the w-b line may be played directly towards the 8th / 17th green (being mindful of fellow golfers on and around the 5th / 14th green). “Out of bounds” penalties are stroke and distance. A provisional ball should be played in case of doubt as to location of ball in relation to the w-b line.
Obstructions:
Stones in bunkers are moveable obstructions (Rule 24 -1).
Sloping struts supporting boundary fences are immovable obstructions (Rule 24-2).
Fixed sprinkler heads and manhole covers are also immovable instructions (Rule 24-2). In addition, if such an obstruction on or within 2 club lengths of the putting green being played intervenes on the line of play between the ball and the hole, and if the ball lies within two club lengths of the intervention, the ball may be lifted, cleaned and dropped at the nearest point which is not nearer the hole, avoids such intervention and is not in a hazard or on a putting green.
Areas Requiring Preservation.
Tees:

When playing the 1st / 10th holes a ball coming to rest on the 2nd / 11th tee and the adjacent path must be lifted and dropped without penalty in the dropping zone behind the 1st / 10th green.
When playing the 5th /14th holes only a ball coming to rest on the 6th/15th teeing surfaces must be lifted and dropped without penalty in the designated dropping zone below the 15th tee.
Protection of young trees: If a staked tree interferes with the players stance or the area of his / her intended swing the ball must be lifted and dropped in accordance with the procedure prescribed in rule 24-2b(i) (immovable obstruction). A ball so lifted may be cleaned.

Distance Measuring Devices: For all play, such devices may be used for measuring distance only. If the device has any other measuring function available, the penalty is disqualification (Rule 14-3)

Players must replace divots, repair pitch marks, rake bunkers
