- OUT OF BOUNDS
- Out of bounds is defined by the line between the course-side points at ground level of white stakes and course boundary fence posts.
- PROTECTION OF YOUNG TREES IDENTIFIED BY STAKES OR RIBBONS
- If a player’s ball in the General Area 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.
- BUILDINGS AND SHELTERS
- All buildings and shelters within the bounds of the Course are integral parts of the Course. The Clubhouse is out of bounds.
- GROUND UNDER REPAIR
- Areas marked GUR or enclosed by a white line. Relief may be taken under Rule 16.
- POWERLINES AND POLES
- “If it is known or virtually certain that a player’s ball hit a power line or any part of a tower or pole supporting a power line, during the play of the 3rd or the 4th hole of the Waterloo course, the stroke does not count. The player must play a ball without penalty from where the previous stroke was made (see Rule 14.6 for what to do).
NOTE 1: Penalty for playing a ball from a wrong place in breach of local rule: incur general penalty under rule 14.7a
NOTE 2: The previous local rule for “Stones in Bunkers”, which appears on pre and post-2019 SOGC scorecard is no longer in effect, as it has been ruled to be an un-authorised local rule, under the 2019 Rules of Golf.
