ABNORMAL COURSE CONDITIONS: The large bunker to the right of hole #9 Putting Green is designated as a No Play Zone in Ground Under Repair. The bunker has two blue stakes separating it, and free relief must be taken in the Dropping Zone at either end of the bunker designated by a blue stake based on whichever side of the two blue stakes the interference exists. The tree wells that are 360 degrees surrounded by turf, are ground under repair. Free relief is available under 16.1 B. Relief is for the well in addition to the tree or anything else growing in the well.
