Temporary Local Rules

Chelmsford Golf Club – Temporary Local Rules (March 2019)


Preferred lies (Winter Rules – through to 30th April 2019 unless rescinded earlier which we will update this page if this is the case)

When a player’s ball lies on a part of the general area cut to fairway height or less, it may be lifted once without penalty, and may be cleaned. They must replace the original ball, or another, on a spot within a relief area.

·         Reference Point: The spot of the original ball.


·         Relief Area: The size of the relief area is up to 6 inches (150 mm) from the reference point, not nearer the hole than the reference point, and which is in the general area.


In proceeding under this local rule, the player must choose a spot to place the ball and use the procedures for replacing the ball under rules 14.2b(2) and 14.2e.

Note: When lifting a ball it is recommended that a player marks the position of the ball to establish a fixed reference point.


10th Hole – No Play Zone

A temporary ‘No Play Zone’ has been put in place on the front left of the 10th green.

Penalty for breach of Local Rule: General Penalty (Matchplay: loss of hole, Strokeplay: two stroke penalty)

If your ball is within the NPZ you may use the nearest dropping zone or drop under Rule 16.1b which the ball must not be nearer the hole once full relief is taken and making sure the ball is not dropped on the green.

Please note that if the dropping zone is nearer to the hole than your ball it is still permitted to use it.

If your ball is on the green and your stance is within the GUR you may use the nearest dropping zone or proceed under Rule 16.1d which will allow you to place the ball on the green no nearer the hole but with full relief from the GUR.
