Aeration Holes. RoG, Definitions Ground under Repair and Appendix I Part A 3d; Decision 25/15. Temporary Local Rule. Revised 2016-03-15.
IN DEPTH: Decision 25/15 declares that aeration holes are not holes made by a greenkeeper within the meaning of that term in the Definition of "Ground under repair". When a course has been aerated, a Temporary Local Rule permitting relief, without penalty, from an aeration hole may be warranted.
Note: It is not necessary to state that relief will be available at certain holes because different parts of the course will be aerated at different times. As soon as the aeration holes have vanished the Local Rule ought to be removed. 

Suggested wording. This rule shall always stand under its own headline.

Aeration Holes
Through the green, a ball which comes to rest in or on an aeration hole may be lifted, without penalty, cleaned and dropped, as near as possible to the spot where it lay but not nearer the hole. The ball when dropped must first strike a part of the course through the green.
On the putting green, a ball that comes to rest in or on an aeration hole may be placed at the nearest spot not nearer the hole that avoids the situation. Penalty: Match play - Loss of hole; Stroke play - Two strokes.
