Bunker Faces Consisting of Stacked Turf. RoG, Definitions, Bunker; Decision 25-2/0.5, 25-2/5 and Decision 33-8/39. Local Rule/Temporary Local Rule. Revised 2015-01-15.
IN DEPTHFrom Definitions; Bunker: "Grass-covered ground bordering or within a bunker including a stacked turf face (whether grass-covered or earthen), is not part of the bunker. A wall or lip of the bunker not covered with grass is part of the bunker. The margin of a bunker extends vertically downwards, but not upwards. A ball is in a bunker when it lies in or any part of it touches the bunker.
From Decision 33-8/39: "A face of a bunker that consists of stacked turf may be grass-covered or earthen. The Committee may deem that such faces are not "closely-mown areas" (Definition in Rule 25-2)." 
The area around a bunker is often cut to semi-rough length or higher. A player may therefore not take relief under Rule 25-2 for a ball that embeds in a bunker face covered with stacked turf.
 

Suggested wording. This Rule shall always stand under its own headline.

Bunker Faces Consisting of Stacked Turf 
Bunker faces consisting of stacked turf on hole ... are through the green but not part of a closely-mown area through the green. The player may not take relief for an embedded ball under Rule 25-2. Penalty: Match play - Loss of hole; Stroke play - Two strokes.
