Local Rules Information

At the Okanagan Golf Course there is one local rule pertaining to the penalty area in front green on hole #14 on the Quail course.

Penalty Area in front of #14 Quail green: If there is doubt whether a ball is in or is lost in the penalty area on #14 Quail, the player may play another ball provisionally under any of the applicable options in Rule 17.1d. If the original ball is found outside the penalty area, the player must continue play with it. If the original ball is found in the penalty area, the player may either play the original ball as it lies or continue with the ball played provisionally. If the original is not found or identified within the three-minute search period, the player must continue with the ball played provisionally.

The Ladies Club will be also using two new (2019) Local Rules for all Ladies Events:

Local Rule Model E-5: When a player’s ball has not been found or is known or virtually certain to be out of bounds, the player may proceed as follow rather than proceeding under stroke and distance. For two penalty strokes, the player may take relief by dropping the original ball or another ball in this relief area. Rule 14.3

Local Rule Model G-8: During a round, a player must not listen to or watch content of any nature on a personal audio or video device.
