Large Areas With Young Trees/Bushes. Ground Under Repair. Play Prohibited. RoG Decision 33-8/26; Appendix I Part B 3. Temporary local rule. Revised 2014-12-02.
IN DEPTH: Young trees or bushes need to be protected. If very large areas have been planted with young trees or bushes, with or without wells, very extensive work may be needed to define the limits of the areas. The Committee may then either choose to use the Local Rule "Protection of Young Trees" -click to link- or deem that the areas are ground under repair from which play is prohibited. The limit of the area is defined by the line between the outside points of the most outside, nearest trees at ground level. The areas can be identified by blue-white stakes placed within the areas.  
One or more Dropping Zones may be needed-click to link.

Suggested wording. The red-coloured title, finishing sentences and the penalty may be removed when this Rule is placed together with other local rules under a specific headline.

Large Areas With Young Trees/Bushes. Ground under Repair (GUR), Play Prohibited.
Areas with young trees and bushes, identified by blue-white posts within the area, are ground under repair from which play is prohibited. The margin of the areas are defined by the outside points of the nearest most outside trees at ground level.
If a players ball lies in the area, or if it interferes with the players stance or the area of his intended swing, the player must, without penalty, take relief under Rule 25-1. If it is known or virtually certain that a ball that has not been found is lost in the GUR the player may, without penalty, take relief under Rule 25-c(i).
Penalty: Match play - Loss of hole; Stroke play - Two strokes.
