Ground Under Repair. RoG, Definitions, Ground under repair. Temporary Local Rule. Revised 2013-06-16.
IN DEPTH: From RoG; Definition, 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 e.g. newly sown, returfed, dug up or waterlogged areas to be ground under repair. The limit of such an area may be defined by blue stakes (and in that case there is no need for a local rule - see the Genereal Local Rule, Markings on the Course) or a continuous white spray line 
which requires a Local Rule.
Note: It is important that the area is defined in such a way that the nearest point of relief will be in a playable position. If this is not possible, one or several dropping-zones may be introduced - click to link.

Suggested wording. The redcoloured headline, the last two sentences and the penalty may be removed when this Rule is placed together with other local rules under a specific headline.
