Unpaved road or path integral part of the course. RoG; Definitions, Obstructions; Rule 33-2(iv); Appendix 1, Part A, 5 c(ii) and Decision 33-8/20. Local Rule. Revised 2015-01-12.
IN DEPTH: From Definitions, Obstructions: "An “obstruction’’ is anything artificial, including the artificial surfaces and sides of roads and paths ". and exception c: "Any construction declared by the Committee to be an integral part of the course."
From Appendix 1 Part A 5 c(ii): "Providing relief of the type afforded under Rule 24-2b from roads and paths not having artificial surfaces and sides if they could unfairly affect play."

Areas on the course may be worn by traffic or walking players to the extent that large areas are laid bare. Such areas may often look like ordinary roads or paths although nothing artificially has been added to its surface. To avoid misinterpretations the committee may introduce a local rule which clarifies that a certain unpaved road or path is an integral part of the course.
Note that under Decision 33-8/20 the committee may declare a road or path which has no artificial surface to be an immovable obstruction if it considers that the road/path constitutes a safety-risk or if it could unfairly affect play - click to link
