Extract from Rule 16-1 Abnormal Course Condition

Meaning of Interference by Abnormal Course Condition. Interference exists when any one of these is true:

  • The player’s ball touches or is in or on an abnormal course condition,
  • An abnormal course condition physically interferes with the player’s area of intended stance or area of intended swing, or
  • Only when the ball is on the putting green, an abnormal course condition on or off the putting green intervenes on the line of play.

If the abnormal course condition is close enough to distract the player but does not meet any of these requirements, there is no interference under this Rule.

b. Relief

Except when the ball is in a penalty area, a player may take relief from interference by an Abnormal Course Condition as follows:

(i) Through the Green: If the ball lies through the green, the player must lift the ball and drop it, without penalty, within one club-length of and not nearer the hole than the nearest point of relief.


Please replace turf and smooth out bunker footmarks.

Remember: Look after your course. Replace divots. Repair damage to putting green.

Indemnity: All golfers and visitors use the facilities of Shetland Golf Club entirely at their own risk. Course users are cautioned to take extra care on the Golf Course when negotiating footpaths, bridges, uneven ground, and water courses.
