Scorecards, showing 2018 instructions, will continue to be used until new cards reflecting 2019 instructions are produced. Information on the back of the 2018 cards is no longer valid and should not be used.

Some 2019 penalty areas (all now red)(rule 17.1d) include 2018 water hazards (old rule 26) which are currently marked in yellow, these must now be treated as red penalty areas. They will all be marked in red before the beginning of the season.

Temporary Local Rule 4 shows that the areas around the new trees planted along the 18th fairway are to be treated as No Play Zones and these areas will shortly be marked in blue.
