Stone Wall Defines and White Stakes Identifies Out of Bounds. RoG, Definitions, Out of Bounds. Local Rule. Revised 2015-01-13.
IN DEPTH: From RoG, Definitions, Out of Bounds, Note 2: "Committee may make a Local Rule declaring stakes identifying but not defining out of bounds to be obstructions." When the Committee uses a stone-wall to define the limits of out of bounds, but wants to avoid that players may be unaware of that the wall defines out of bounds, the out of bounds can be identified with white stakes along the inside of the wall and declare that the stakes are movable or immovable obstructions
The out of bounds line is determined by the nearest, most inside points of the stones at ground level.
Note that it is important that the wall is regular, that there are no loose stones along the wall and that bushes or high grass is removed so that the player can determine the line accurately.

Suggested wording. The title and the penalty may be removed when this Rule stands together with other Rules under a specific headline. The two finishing, red-coloured sentences may be omitted.
