Out of Bounds
Out of bounds is defined by the line between the course-side points at ground level of white stakes and fence posts. Out of bounds is also defined by the course-side kerb stones on the road beside the 18th fairway.
The practice ground between the 13th, 4th, 15th and 16th fairways is out of bounds. The boundary is defined by the course-side points at ground level of white stakes.
All Penalty areas are defined as RED
Abnormal Course Conditions – Immovable Obstructions Rule 16 include
a) All artificially surfaced roads and paths on the course outwith a Penalty Area. All other paths and tracks are an integral part of the Genaral Area.

Distance measuring Devices
Distance may be obtained by devices that measure or gauge distance only
Many fairways are blind from the tee and bell standards must be used to advise when fairways are clear. Extra caution should be taken where visibility of adjacent fairways is limited. Particular care should be taken when playing from the second, third, seventh and eighteenth tees.
