IN DEPTH From RoG Appendix I Part A 4b: "Adverse conditions, including the poor condition of the course or the existance of mud, are sometimes so general, particularly during winter months, that the Committee may decide to grant relief by Temporary Local Rule either to protect the course or to promote fair and plesant play. The Local Rule should be withdrawn as soon as the conditions warrant". 
Temporay Local Rules and Regulations are used for a short period of time to regulate play and other matters such as ongoing work, provisional tees, heaps of leaves, fairway mats, the use of carts, winter rules and so forth.
If the example is used as a template all clubs will present temporarary conditions in a uniform way which will make it easier to update all players - Click for link to Manual.
If all temporary local rules och ordningsföreskrifter i a single document  blir det mycket lättare hålla reda på alla tillfälliga lokala regler och ordningsföreskrifter. 
Genom att ha med date från den tidpunkt när regel skall börja gälla blir det enklare att hålla reda på regler som blivit för gamla. 
One person, preferably the chairman of the Competition Committee or the the Caddiemaster or the Head Greenkeeper should be responsible for the upkeep of temporarary local rules and conditions of conduct. Thus the members of the club have direct access to the person who is in charge of the daily conditions under which golf is played. A very important task for the person in charge is when to introduce and withdraw "Winter Rules" either to protect the course or to promote fair and pleasant play. 

Effective from

november 9th.

Preferred Lies 
A ball lying on a closely-mown area through the green may be lifted, without penalty, and cleaned. Before lifting the ball, the player must mark its position. Having lifted the ball, he must place it on a spot within one scorecard of and not nearer the hole than where it originally lay, that is not in a hazard or on a putting green.
A player may place his ball only once, and it is in play when it has been placed (Rule 20-4). If the ball fails to come to rest on the spot on which it was placed, Rule 20-3d applies. If the ball when placed comes to rest on the spot on which it is placed and subsequently moves, there is no penalty and the ball must be played as it lies, unless the provisions of any other Rule apply.
If the player fails to mark the position of the ball before lifting it or moves the ball in any other manner, such as rolling it with a club, he incurs a penalty of one stroke.
Note: "Closely-mown area" means any area of the course, including paths through the rough, cut to faiway height or less.
Penalty: Match play - Loss of hole; Stroke play - Two strokes. If a player incurs the general penalty for a breach of this Rule, no additional penalty under the Local Rule is applied..


Effective from august 10th.

Protection of young trees
If a young tree identified by orange ribbon or its hollow filled with wooden chips interferes with a players stance or the area of his intended swing, the ball must, without penalty, be lifted and dropped in accordance with the procedure prescribed in Rule 24-2b (Immovable Obstruction). The ball may be cleaned when lifted under this Rule.
Exception: A player may not obtain relief under this Rule if (a) it is clearly unreasonable for him to make a stroke because of interference by anything other than the tree or (b) interference by the tree would occur only through use of an unnecessarily abnormal stance, swing or direction of play.  





Penalty, if not stated otherwise in the Rule: Matchplay - Loss of hole; Strokeplay - Two strokes.


Transgression of a Regulation may lead to an admonition or disciplinary actions.
