Bexleyheath Golf Club Local Rules

Out of Bounds:
Beyond all perimeter fences, railings walls and roads. The concrete and paving surrounds of the clubhouse. The unfenced part of the course beyond the straight line of trees and the white marker posts to the right of the first fairway between the clubhouse and the gardens.
Priority on the course:
Players on the 5th/14th hole should give priority to those playing from the 6th /15th tees. Players on the 7th/16th holes should give priority to players on the 8th/17th, this includes ensuring the ladies 8th/17th tee is clear. Players on the 8th/17th lower fairway when playing from beyond the poplar tree should give priority to those driving off the 6th/15th tees.
Restricted approach to certain holes:
If when playing the 5th/14th holes the ball passes to the left of the white marker post on the tree on the bank of the 8th/17th holes , the stroke must be replayed. Penalty distance only.
If when playing the 8th/17th holes a ball passes to the right of the red marker post on the bank of the 5th/14th hole and comes to rest above a line extending from the red marker post to the yellow marker post and beyond (the r-y line) , the stroke must be replayed. Penalty – distance only
A ball which passes correctly to the left of the red marker post but then comes to rest below the r-y line may be replayed. Penalty: distance only or played without penalty to the left hand side of the red marker post from where it came to rest. If there is any doubt as to where the ball has come to rest in relation to the r-y line, a provisional ball should be played without delay, which will become the ball in play if the original ball is found to have come to rest below the r-y line.
Obstructions:
Stones in bunkers are moveable obstructions (rule 24-1) applies.
Sloping struts supporting boundary fences are immovable obstructions (Rule 24-2 applies).
Fixed sprinkler heads and manhole covers are also immovable instructions (Rule 24-2 applies). In addition, if such an obstruction or within 2 club lengths of the putting green of the ball 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 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.
Dropping Zones: When playing the 1st/10th holes the protective screen to the right of the 2nd/11th tee is an immovable obstruction and two dropping zones operate for relief from it as indicated on the course. A ball coming to rest on the 2nd/11th tee must also be dropped in the appropriate Dropping Zone.
Please note that when playing the 2nd/11th hole a ball coming to rest against the protective screen is deemed in play.

Use of GPS: The use of GPS is permitted in Competition Play at Bexleyheath Golf Club.

Players must replace divots, repair pitch marks, rake bunkers
