DOUBLE PAR PICK-UP RULE
You must pick up your ball and move onto the next hole once you have shot two times the par for that hole or equivalent to X for the hole according to your handicap.
If, after playing a shot, you think your ball may be lost outside a water hazard or out of bounds you should play a provisional ball. You must state that it is a provisional ball and play it before you go forward to search for the original ball.
WORK TOGETHER & BE CAREFUL
Do your best to watch the entire flight and have as many of your playing partners as possible helping search for a lost ball. The more eyes, the better.
R&A RULES OF GOLF GOVERN ALL PLAY EXCEPT WHERE MODIFIED BY LOCAL RULES.
1. OUT OF BOUNDS (Rule 27)
A ball shall be “Out of bounds” when it lies:
a) On or over any boundary wall.
b) Beyond any boundary fence or hedge.
c) As defined with white stakes or lines.
d) The clubhouse and all surrounding areas.
e) On the cliff edge running alongside the 18th hole, the area is marked with white posts, for safety reasons it is advised all golfers approach the cliff edge with caution.

3. LATERAL WATER HAZARDS (Rule 26)
Defined by red stakes and lines.
4. NEWLY PLANTED TREES AND NEWLY SEEDED AREAS.
Relief from all newly planted trees includes staked and non staked trees.
The ball must be dropped from all these areas at the nearest point of relief within 1 club length so the players intended swing does not damage the young trees.

5. CART PATHS, PATHS AND ROADS.
A ball coming to rest on any path or road may be lifted and dropped without penalty.
