Internal Out of Bounds. RoG, Definitions, Out of bounds; Decision 24/5. Local Rule. Revised 2015-01-13. 
IN DEPTH: Internal out of bounds (white-black stakes) are used for safety or design related reasons. Out of bounds-stakes will not prevent a bad shot but they might prevent a player to purposely choose a dangerous or unusual direction of play.
The stakes, which might be either four sided with three white sides or three sided with one white side towards the hole where the stakes defines out of bounds, are by "Definitions" deemed to be fixed. This means that the stakes may not be removed and when there is interference with the lie of the ball, the players stance or his intended swing the player may only take relief, with one stroke penalty, under Rule 28 (Ball Unplayable).
During play of the hole where the local rule does not apply (black side/sides towards that hole) the stakes are immovable obstructions and the player may take relief, without penalty, under Rule 24-2.
