Direction Poles and Search Poles Declared to be Movable Obstructions. RoG Definitions; Obstructions and Decision 19-1/1. Local Rule. Revised 2012-09-17. 
IN DEPTH: From Definitions; Obstructions: "An obstruction is a movable obstruction if it may be moved without unreasonable effort, without unduly delaying play and without causing damage. Otherwise it is an immovable obstruction. Note: The Committee may make a Local Rule declaring a movable obstruction to be an immovable obstruction". 
Direction Poles may be used to indicate the line of play on hilly holes. 
Search Poles may be helpful during search to make it easier to find a ball in high rough without any prominent features. 
The Committee may, for safety reasons, declare such poles to be movable obstructions

Note: If the pole is put in a concrete block or a pipe (Definitions; Obstructions) the player may take relief, without penalty, from the artificial base under Rule 24-2. If the pole is placed in an anchor hole it is a hole made by a greenkeeper (Definitions; Ground under repair) and the player may take relief, without penalty, from the hole under rule 25-1. 
To minimize interference on the players line of play the height of the direction poles kept to no more than 40-50 centimetres.

Suggested wording. The headline and the penalty may be removed when this Rule is placed together with other local rules under a specific headline. If the poles have artificial bases the last sentence shall be retained.
