The Local Rules serve as a supplement to the Rules of Golf valid in a given year. They specify the signage used on the course, objects and buildings on the course and sometimes situations that may arise during play. Their main function is to speed up play by eliminating the need for lengthy consultation of the Rules of Golf or the assistance of marshals or referees. By reading the following, you can help speed up the game for yourself and other golfers and make your round a more enjoyable experience!
