OUT OF BOUNDS
- Where boundary fences have masonry or a concrete wall at their base, out of bounds is defined by the inside course-side edge of the wall or concrete.
- The course-side edges of public roads are defined as out of bounds. A ball that crosses a road which is marked out of bounds and comes to rest beyond that road is out of bounds, even if it comes to rest on another part of the golf course.
- The driving range is deemed to be out of bounds. Its margins are defined by stakes and/or its fencing.
- The paved cart path and its curbing behind the putting greens of Holes 9 & 18 is out of bounds on course #1 and hole 18 on course #2.
TEMPORARY IMMOVABLE OBSTRUCTIONS: The temporary light structures on the golf course as well as any stadium related objects are deemed to be temporary immovable obstructions. The Local Rule as prescribed in
Section 8 of the Committee Procedures is in effect. Model Local Rule F-23. Line of sight/play, swing and stance relief.
NO PLAY ZONE: The flood control channel is deemed to be no play zone treated as a red or yellow penalty area depending on as marked. A ball must not be played or retrieved from within the flood channel and relief must be taken from interference by the no play zone under Rule 17.1e. On Holes 10, 16, & 17, the penalty area is deemed to extend to infinity. Hole # 7 the penalty area extends to the out of bounds fence.
DROPPING ZONE: On Hole #1, as an additional option to Rule 17.1, the dropping zone to the left of the cart path near the putting green may be used for the lateral water hazard behind the putting green.
MULCH AREAS: Mulch and bark areas are loose impediments and are part of the general area.
OBSTRUCTIONS: All protective fences within the course that are not part of a boundary fence are deemed to be immovable obstructions. Relief may be taken under Rule 16.1; however, there is no line of play relief.
PROTECTION OF YOUNG TREES: If a staked tree or a young tree with a tree well interferes with a player’s stance or area of intended swing while the ball is located in the general area, the ball MUST be lifted without penalty and dropped in accordance with the procedure prescribed in Rule 17.1e(2).
DRAINAGE AREA: (Course #2) Hole #13 near the green. The player may take relief, no penalty.
PENALTY AREA BEHIND HOLE #12 (Course #2) The player may take relief under Rule 17.1B. In the absence of red stakes/lines the margin is defined by the rock wall.
CLOSE OF COMPETITION: The close of the competition is deemed to have closed when the committee has approved all scores.
DAMAGE FROM ROSE BOWL PARKING: In the general area the player may take relief from GUR in cases of severe damage from vehicles parking on the golf course. Any decompsed granite (roads or path) in the "gerneral area" the player may take free relief. Rule 16.1
CODE OF CONDUCT 01-15 2019
Attention Brookside Men’s Club. The rule regarding the playing of music or video content has been removed in the recent 2019 rule changes (Rule 4.4). However, if listening to music or other audio to eliminate distractions or help with swing tempo and/or viewing a video of yourself or another player that would help in making a stroke, choosing a club or deciding how to play during a competition, you could be assessed a 2 stroke penalty for the first offense and disqualified for the second offense. Rule 1.2 is being applied to this. The BMGC committee has agreed to add a further stipulation under the committee procedure (section 8-5H). The player will receive 1 warning that the music is too loud. The second offense will be a 2 stroke penalty. The 3rd offense is disqualification. Any player that is within earshot of the music being played has a right to ask for this consideration. Please be considerate of the players around you. Headphones are now allowed as long as you are within the rule (4.4) guidelines.
