A ball is out of bounds if it lies outside the boundary of the Course (The Clubhouse area including car parks, paths, putting green, chipping green and garden and greenkeepers’ area between 7th tee and 10th green are not part of the Course).
If it is known or virtually certain that a player's ball hit a power line the stroke does not count.
The player must play a ball without penalty from where their previous stroke was made (see Rule 14.6 for what to do).
If a player’s ball is in the general area and there is interference from exposed tree roots that are in a part of the general area cut to fairway height or less or in the rough within two club-lengths of the edge of the ground cut to fairway height or less or in the first cut of the rough, the tree roots are treated as ground under repair. The player may take free relief under Rule 16.1b. But interference does not exist if the tree roots only interfere with the player’s stance.
Penalty: Match Play – Loss of Hole
Stroke Play – Two Strokes
