Local Rules Marked and Unmarked Ground Under Repair 

When your ball enters an area marked as Ground Under Repair – you “may” take a free drop under the appropriate provisions or play the ball as it lies unless not permitted by Local Rules.   If your ball finds an area in the fairway that clearly should have been marked as GUR but isn’t, after getting approval of your playing partners, you will be entitled to proceed under GUR provisions.  This only applies to fairways.  If your ball is in the rough, unless the questionable area has been created by the grounds crew, you must play the ball as it lies.  We extend exceptions to bare spots within 15 yards of any green fringe, whether in the fairway or rough as long as within 15 yards, that would have normally been marked as GUR under the Rules of Golf.  In these instances you would be entitled to a free drop, no closer to the hole in either the rough or fairway.  The area must be clearly established by you and your playing partners as being an area that would have been marked under tournament like conditions.  Uneven or inconsistent grass would not qualify.  Area in question must clearly be a bare spot where dirt is visible.
