Partly Grass-Covered Wall of Bunker Part of Bunker. Decision 33-8/39.5. RoG; Definitions; Bunker. Local Rule. Revised 2015-01-13.
IN DEPTH: From RoG; 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."
From Decision 33-8/39.5. "When the bunkers on a course are designed to have earthen walls (not
consisting of stacked turf), they are intended to be part of the bunkers. Sometimes, parts of some of the bunker walls may have become grasscovered. Under the Definition of “Bunker,” such grass-covered areas are through the green. In such a situation, the Committee may make a Local Rule deeming the “mixed” bunker walls to be part of the bunker
Conversely, if the bunkers had been designed to have grass-covered walls, but some parts had worn bare, the Committee could deem the “mixed” bunker walls to be through the green and not part of the bunker."

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