Bunker Adjacent to Ground Under Repair. RoG, Definitions Ground under Repair, Rule 25-b(ii)(a), 25-1b(ii)(b) and 28. Temporary Local Rule. Revised 2014-11-30.
IN DEPTH: A bunker which is within or adjacent to an area declared to be ground under repair (for example a stacked turf bunker face which is renovated) is still a hazard.
If a players ball is in the bunker and the ground under repair interferes with the players stance or the area of his intended swing the player may either take relief, without penalty, in the bunker under Rule 25-1b(ii)(a) or, with one stroke penalty, outside the bunker under Rule 25-1b(ii)(b). The player may also declare his ball unplayable under Rule 28.

Bunker Adjacent to Ground Under Repair (GUR) 
The area on hole ... which limits is defined by ... is ground under repair (GUR). The bunker is not GUR. If the ball is in or touches the bunker and the GUR interferes with the players stance or the area of his intended swing the player may either, without penalty under Rule 25-1b(ii)(a), drop the ball in the bunker within one club-length of and not nearer the hole than the nearest point of relief, which must be in the bunker, or, under penalty of one stroke under Rule 25-1b(ii)(b), drop the ball outside the bunker keeping the point where the ball lay directly between the hole and the spot on which the ball is dropped, with no limit to how far behind the bunker the ball may be dropped. Penalty: Match play - Loss of hole; Stroke play - Two strokes.
