SEA   TRAIL   LADY   NINERS
LOCAL   RULES

 1.         To speed up play, pick up after 10 strokes unless playing in a tournament.  (In a
              tournament you must putt out or be disqualified).

 2.         Take relief from all ropes, posts, and railroad ties.  Determine the point of
              nearest relief and drop the ball, without penalty, within one club length of that
              point.   NO NEARER THE HOLE.

 3.         Take relief from fire ants, poison ivy, and poison oak.  Determine the point of
              nearest relief from the ball, without penalty, within one club length of that point.  
             NO NEARER THE HOLE.

 4.         Winter rules are in place all year.  You may improve your lie in your own fairway 6
             inches, no nearer the hole.

 5.         Waste areas are designated by the absence of rakes.  Take relief if your ball lies
              in a footprint, rut, or tire track.  Determine the point of nearest relief, drop your 
              ball, without penalty, within one club length of that point.  You may ground your
              club in a waste area.

 6.         Any drainage ditch (wet or dry) on the course will be played as a lateral hazard. 
             Follow the appropriate procedure as it applies to a lateral hazard.

 7.         Water hazards:  Where there is a designated drop area, try to get over the water
             once.  If the ball goes in the water, carry to the drop area, add 2 strokes to your
             score (one for the shot, one for the penalty).  Drop the ball in the drop area. 
             Where there is no designated drop area, try to get over the water two times.  If the
             ball goes in the water on the second shot, carry around and drop at the closest
            point on the other side of the hazard, adjacent to the green.  (Right side of cart 
            path on Byrd #13 and left side of cart path on Jones #8).  Add 4 strokes to your
            score (two for the shots, two for the penalties).  
            IMPORTANT:   THIS RULE APPLIES TO WATER HAZARDS ONLY
            (YELLOW STAKES) AND NOT LATERAL HAZARDS (RED STAKES).

8.         When the game of the week is “least putts,” the procedure is as follows:   A putt is counted ONLY when the ball rests on the green before the stroke is taken.

9.         Take relief from only those landscaped areas designated by a blue stake.  If such an area interferes with a player’s stance or intended swing, the ball must be lifted, without penalty.  Determine the point of nearest relief and drop the ball within one club length of that point, NO NEARER THE HOLE.   If your ball lies in any other landscaped area not so marked, you must play the ball as it lies.

10.       If your ball lies in pine straw anywhere on the course, you must play the ball as it lies.  You do not get any relief from a ditch that encircles the pine straw.
