Exposed Rock. RoG, Definitions, Ground under Repair. Local Rule or Temporary Local Rule . Revised 2015-03-27.
IN DEPTH, From RoG; Definitions, Ground under Repair: "Ground under repair is any part of the course so marked by order of the Committee or so declared by its authorised representative." 
The Committee may declare exposed rocks or earth-bound stones on a closely mown area  of through the green to be ground under repair. In that case the grass surrounding the rock must be cut to fairway height or shorter otherwise the rock is not by definition on a closely mown part of through the green. When it is difficult to keep the grass sufficiently short the area which contains the rock can be declared as ground under repair and the limit of that area may be defined by blue stakes or a white spray-line.  

 that on new courses there might be many earth-bound or exposed stones and in that case it is better to use the local rule for preferred lies - Click to link.
