Areas where Practice Is Allowed. RoG Rule 7-1 and its Note; Rule 33-2c and Decision 7-1b/1. Condition of Competition. Revised 2015-01-06.
IN DEPTH: RoG Definitions, Course: "The course is the whole area within any boundaries established by the Committee (See Rule 33-2)." 
Rule7-1 Note:
"The Committee may, in the conditions of a competition (Rule 33-1), prohibit practice on the competition course on any day of a match-play competition or permit practice on the competition course or part of the course (Rule 33-2c) on any day of or between rounds of a stroke-play competition.
Rule 33-2c:"Where there is no practice ground available outside the area of a competition course, the Committee should establish the area on which players may practice on any day of a competition, if it is practicable to do so. On any day of a stroke play competition, the Committee should not normally permit practice on or to a putting green or from a hazard of the competition course".
To help to avoid that players in a stroke play competition (or in a match play competition where practice is prohibited on the competition course) practice on any part of the competition course the boundaries of the competion course should be clearly defined. A practice area or a pitch and putt course within the course ought to be clearly defined by refference to stakes, roads, stone walls or out of bounds markings.
Note: The Committee should try to avoid that balls played from a practice area can reach any part of the competition course. - click to link
