Conditions of Play

Rules of Play

Play shall be governed by the 2002 Rules of Golf of the Royal & Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews, the USGA, and the local rules of The Manila Southwoods Golf & Country Club. The following Local Rules will be in effect during the tournament.

 LOCAL RULE #1: All landscaped areas (whether marked or not) will be considered lateral water hazards. The boundaries of these landscaped areas start at the point where the cut of the fairway or rough ends. When a landscaped area abuts a bunker, you must drop inside the bunker when taking a 1 stroke penalty.

 LOCAL RULE #2: Through the green, a ball which is embedded in its own pitch-mark in the ground, other than the sand, may be lifted without penalty, cleaned and dropped as near as possible to where it lay but not nearer the hole. The ball when dropped must first strike a part of the course through the green.

LOCAL RULE #3: Unless painted or marked with red stakes, the hazard line of a “beach bunker” is the edge of the grass and the sand. (A “beach bunker” is a bunker that has no grass between the sand and the water but is considered a lateral water hazard (red). These “beach bunkers” are found at Masters #2, 3, 5, 6, 8, 11, 12, & 18).

LOCAL RULE #4: If a ball strikes an elevated power line, the stroke shall be cancelled and replayed, without penalty. If the ball is not immediately recoverable, another ball may be substituted.
