The Village Links of Glen Ellyn
RULES: USGA rules shall govern play except for the following local rules:
1. Distance-Measuring Devices: For all play at this course, a player may obtain distance information by using a device that measures distance only. However, if, during a stipulated round, a player uses a distance-measuring device that is designed to gauge or measure other conditions that might affect his play (e.g., gradient, wind-speed, temperature, etc.), the player is in breach of Rule 14-3, for which the penalty is disqualification, regardless of whether any such additional features are actually used.
2. Embedded Ball Rule: Through the green, a ball that is embedded in its own pitch-mark in the ground, other than 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. Exception: A player may not take relief under this Local Rule if it is clearly unreasonable for him to play a stroke because of interference by anything other than the condition covered by this Local Rule. PENALTY FOR BREACH OF LOCAL RULE: Match play - Loss of hole; Stroke play - Two strokes.”
SCORING: Players shall record their gross score (score with no handicap or ESC adjustments) for each hole. All players must hole everything out. Players must turn in their signed scorecards to the Golf Shop within 15 minutes of finishing play. Scorecards not turned in will result in disqualification.
RAINOUT POLICY: In the event of a rainout, as determined by the Committee, all entry fees will be refunded, and satisfaction credits issued for any unplayed holes.
LIGHTNING: A long continuous blast signifies that play is suspended. Players may mark the position of their golf ball, or simply leave it where it lay, and seek shelter immediately. At this point, the course and all outdoor facilities are closed. A high-low alternating tone signals all clear, whereupon players shall resume play without delay.
