Protection of Inviolable Flowering Plant. RoG Decision 33-8/26; Appendix I Part B 2. Temporary Local Rule Revised 2014-11-30.
IN DEPTH: On golf courses where there are inviolable plants, so declared by an appropriate authority,
(i.e. Sankte Pers Nycklar or Gullvivor) the club must try to protect them. A single plant and a suitable area around it may be deemed to be ground under repair from which play is prohibited. If larger areas are covered with flowering plants it might be convenient to declare the whole area as ground under repair from which play is prohibited. The limit of such an area may either be defined by a white spray-line or, when there are many areas, by the line between the outside points of the most outside, nearest flowers at ground level. In both cases the areas must be identified by blue-white stakes within the areaPictures of the plants should be provided on Temporary Local Rule and at the tees.
When the flowering season has ended the locla rule should be removed.
One or several Dropping Zones may be used. - click to link
