Rut Made by Vehicle. RoG, Definitions, Ground under repair; Decision 25/16. Temporary Local Rule. Revised 2014-11-30.
IN DEPTH: From Decision 25/16: "Ruts made by greenkeeping equipment (tractor) are not holes made by a greenkeeper. The Committee may be justified in declaring a deep rut to be ground under repair but not a shallow indention or compressed grass." 

Note: This Local Rule permits the player to take relief from ruts on an road which has been declared an integral part of the course. On the other hand there is no relief, without penalty, from ruts on an artificially surfaced road which has retained its status as an immovable obstruction.

Suggested wording. The title, the final sentence and the penalty may be removed when this Rule is placed together with other local rules under a specific headline.
