Two Holes on Each Putting Green on Nine Hole Course RoG; Rule 25-3b(iii); Decision 16/7. Local Rule. Revised 2014-10-21.
IN DEPTH From Decision 16/7: "It is permissible for the Committee to make two holes on each green of a nine-hole course, one for use in play of the first nine holes (holes 1-9) and the other for use in play of the second nine holes (holes 10-18). The hole not in use on each green is a hole made by a greenkeeper (see Definitions; Ground under repair) and Rule 25-1 applies." 
This means that when the ball lies on a green the player may take relief, without penalty, under Rule 25-1b(iii) from interference by a hole not in use when the ball lies in or touches the hole, or when the hole interferes with the players stance, the area of his intended swing or if the hole intervenes on his line of putt
Note: Many men are colour 
blind foremost in the red spectrum (5 % of the Swedish male population). It might be advisable to use yellow flags to indicate hole 1-9 and white flags to indicate hole 10-18.


Suggested wording. The Rule shall always stand under its own title.
