  4. During play, a ball coming to rest in a bunker may be lifted and placed within one club-length of the original spot and not nearer to the hole than that spot.
  5. if in doubt of finding a ball, play a provisional and remember, you only have 3 minutes to look for it!
  6. On completion of your round, cards should be placed in the box adjacent to the Pro-Shop.
  7. Competition Convener request: As all cards will be inputted at a later date, please, please write legibly!!
