RELIEF FROM SPRINKLER HEADS Rule 24-2 Immovable Obstruction

April 27, 2015

All fixed sprinkler heads on the course are considered immovable obstructions.  Relief from interference from them is granted under RULE 24-2. Immovable Obstruction.

 

In addition, the rules committee has adopted a USGA suggested local rule regarding  relief from sprinkler heads located near the green. ( PLEASE NOTE--ALL conditions must be met for relief to be granted):

 

"If a ball lies off the putting green but not in a hazard, AND  the sprinkler head is on or within two club-lengths of the putting surface AND within two club lengths of the ball AND intervenes with the line of play between the ball and the hole, you may take relief as follows:

 

The ball shall be lifted and dropped at the nearest point to where the ball lay which (a) is not nearer the hole, (b) avoids such intervention. and (c) is not in a hazard or on a putting green. 

 

The ball may be cleaned when lifted."
