HANDLING THE FLAG




BUNKERS

Before leaving a bunker, players should carefully fill and smooth over all holes and footprints made and then leave the rake with the handle pointing toward the tee of the hole being played.
   1.  Always enter the bunker at the lowest point.

   2.  Using two hands to pull the rake toward you as you exit the bunker.

   3.  If required, rake other affected areas.

   4.  Do not pile sand at the edge of the bunker. Push back excess sand with reverse side of rake.

BUNKER RAKE POLICY

Always leave the rake in the flat of the bunker with the handle pointing towards the tee of the hole being played and parallel to the line of flight of the ball. Rakes should be placed as far from the edge as possible.

REPAIRING DIVOTS

1.      Remove any loose turf from the affected area.

2.      Knock in the edges of the divot with your club.

REPAIRING BALL-MARKS

1.      Always start at the back of the mark and push forward with the repairer.

2.      Use the repairer around all sides and slowly ease the turf toward the centre of the mark. Do not lift the soil upwards.

3.      Tap down lightly with a putter.

4.      Your completed repair should look like the image on the left.

 

DAMAGE TO THE GREENS

FLAGSTICKS

Players should ensure that, when putting down bags or the flagstick, no damage is done to the putting green and that neither they nor their caddies damage the hole by standing close to it when handling the flagstick or in removing the ball from the hole. The flagstick should be properly replaced in the hole before the players leave the putting green.

HANDLING THE FLAG

1.      Don't drop the flagstick on the putting surface as it will cause damage.
2. Always lower the flagstick by using a club or by hand.
3. Avoid damage to the surrounds by placing the stick in the centre of the cup.

HOLE DAMAGE

Players must NOT use their putter to remove their golf ball from the hole.
