1. Out of Bounds.
No changes here other than the rule number.
 
2. Abnormal Course Conditions.
 Abnormal Course Condition is the 2019 name for Abnormal Ground Condition. An Abnormal Course Condition includes Ground Under Repair, Temporary Water (pre 2019 Casual Water) and from 2019 Immovable Obstructions. previously covered by rule 24, are now covered as an Abnormal Course Condition. This makes sense as the interference/relief options from GUR and an artificially surfaced path, for example, were exactly the same.
Local Rule 2.d means that GUR adjacent to a path is treated as one condition and relief is taken from both in the one drop. Without this local rule if your nearest point of relief from GUR was on the path, you are required to drop on the path. Then possibly drop back in the GUR, then on the path...
 
Local Rule 2.1 declares additional objects on the course as Immovable.
a) Hoses. Even if you can move a hose, treat it as immovable and drop away from it. The reasoning here is that the hose/sprinkler may be positioned by green staff to water a specific area. Moving it may disrupt this.
b) Stakes on the course are to be left in place and treated as immovable.
c) Is referencing Model Local Rule F-5. The long form of the model local rule is below.
 
Relief from interference by an immovable obstruction may be taken under Rule 16.1.

The player also has these extra options to take relief when such immovable obstructions are close to the putting green and on the line of play:

Ball in General Area. The player may take relief under Rule 16.1b if an immovable obstruction is:

  • On the line of play, and is:
    • Within two club-lengths of the putting green, and
    • Within two club-lengths of the ball.

Exception - No Relief If Line of Play Clearly Unreasonable. There is no relief under this Local Rule if the player chooses a line of play that is clearly unreasonable.

3. Integral Objects. This clarifies objects on the course that have no defined interference or relief. The ball must be played as it lies or considered unplayable in these areas.

4. Special or Required Relief

a) Aeration Holes. Relief is available if your ball is in an aeration hole. Long form of Model Local Rule E-4;

If a player’s ball lies in or touches an aeration hole:
(a) Ball in General Area. The player may take relief under Rule 16.1b. If the ball comes to rest in another aeration hole the player may take relief again under this Local Rule.
(b) Ball on Putting Green. The player may take relief under Rule 16.1d.
But interference does not exist if the aeration hole only interferes with the player’s stance or, on the putting green, on the player’s line of play.

b) Seams of Cut Turf. Where new turf has been laid, relief is available if a ball is in a seam. Long form of Model Local Rule F-7;

If a player’s ball lies in or touches a seam of cut turf or a seam interferes with the player’s area of intended swing:
(a) Ball in General Area. The player may take relief under Rule 16.1b.
(b) Ball on Putting Green. The player may take relief under Rule 16.1d.
But interference does not exist if the seam only interferes with the player’s stance.

All seams within the area of cut turf are treated as the same seam in taking relief. This means that if a player has interference from any seam after dropping the ball, the player must proceed as required under Rule 14.3c(2) even when the ball is still within one club-length of the reference point.

What this last paragraph means is that if the dropped ball comes to rest in another seam, drop it a second time then place it if it's again in a seam. Rule 14.3c(2).

c) Young trees identified with stakes are no play zones. Model Local Rule E-10;

The young trees identified by stakes are no play zones:

  • If a player’s ball lies anywhere on the course other than in a penalty area and it lies on or touches such a tree or such a tree interferes with the player’s stance or area of intended swing, the player must take relief under Rule 16.1f. 
  • If the ball lies in a penalty area, and interference to the player’s stance or area of intended swing exists from such a tree, the player must take relief either with penalty under Rule 17.1e or with free relief under Rule 17.1e(2).

All this means is that you must take relief from staked trees.

5. Penalty Areas. The new name for Water Hazards and any other area the committee decides to mark as a penalty area.

a) Extending to infinity. Some Penalty Areas will only be marked on one side. Examples are the creeks on the left of the 6th and 13th holes or any other Penalty Area along a boundary. This means that a ball can travel as far into the Penalty Area as you could possibly hit it, so on the 6th, over Pittwater Rd and into the back garden of number 572. Your ball can still be considered to be in the Penalty Area and a ball can be dropped within 2 club-lengths of where it crossed the edge. Defining the areas like this eliminates doubt as to whether the ball is in the Penalty Area or Out of Bounds.

b) Allowing Provisional Ball for a ball in Penalty Area. Under the rules a Provisional Ball can only be played for a ball that may be lost or Out of Bounds. This local rule is required to allow play of a provisional ball for a ball that may be in the Penalty Areas at 6 and 7. If you're uncertain your ball is in the Penalty Area, this saves the time of going over the bridge, not finding your ball, then going back to the tee. Without this local rule, a second ball played from the tee is your ball in play and if you find your original ball outside the Penalty Area, it can't be played. Model Local Rule B-3;

If a player does not know whether his or her ball is in the penalty area identify location, the player may play a provisional ball under Rule 18.3, which is modified in this way:

In playing the provisional ball, the player may use the stroke-and-distance relief option (see Rule 17.1d(1), the back-on-the-line relief option (see Rule 17.1d(2)) or, if it is a red penalty area, the lateral relief option (see Rule 17.1d(3)). If a dropping zone (see Model Local Rule E-1) is available for this penalty area, the player may also use that relief option.

Once the player has played a provisional ball under this Rule, he or she may not use any further options under Rule 17.1 in relation to the original ball.

In deciding when that provisional ball becomes the player's ball in play or if it must or may be abandoned, Rule 18.3c(2) and 18.3c(3) apply except that:

  • When Original Ball Is Found in Penalty Area Within Three-Minute Search Time. The player may choose either to:
    • Continue to play the original ball as it lies in the penalty area, in which case the provisional ball must not be played. All strokes with that provisional ball before it was abandoned (including strokes made and any penalty strokes solely from playing that ball) do not count, or
    • Continue to play the provisional ball  in which case the original ball must not be played.
  • When Original Ball Is Not Found Within Three-Minute Search Time or Is Known or Virtually Certain to Be in Penalty Area. The provisional ball becomes the player's ball in play.

Note: the only option for the original ball, if it's found, is to play it as it lies.

c) Is describing the drop stake at the 11th.

d) Any unmarked water courses are treated as part of the General Area. The drain along the left side of the 5th hole will fall into this category. Play the ball as it lies in this area, no Penalty relief.
