|4||Immovable Obstructions (eg Sprinkler Heads) close to Putting Greens – Line of Play Interference|
Rule 16.1b applies to immovable obstructions close to putting greens. In addition to the types of interference described in Rule 16.1a, interference also exists if an immovable obstruction is: on the player’s line of play, and is within two club-lengths of the putting green, and is within two club-lengths of the ball. (Exception – There is no relief under this Local Rule if the player chooses a line of play that is clearly unreasonable.)
Cracks in the ground in parts of the general area are ground under repair. The player may take relief under Rule 16.1b. But interference does not exist if the crack only interferes with player’s stance.
