Know the Rules 16.1: Abnormal Course Conditions (Including Immovable Obstructions) What’s it all about? Rule 16.1 is in place to give free relief for interference by abnormal course conditions such as animal holes, ground under repair, immovable obstructions or temporary water.

How does it work?

Rule 16.1 In Action: Jim hits his tee shot down the middle of the fairway and his ball comes to rest in an area where the sod has been removed by the maintenance staff. Even thought this area has not been marked with a white line, hitting a ball out of this condition is not a part of the challenge of playing this golf course so it is deemed to be ground under repair. Jim proceeds by first finding his nearest point of complete relief from this abnormal course condition. He then marks this reference point with a tee and can drop the ball within one club length of his tee no nearer to the hole. Jim makes his drop and his golf ball comes to rest in the relief area, completing his relief from the ground under repair area.

Why is Rule 5.6 is Important? This rule is important because it can save a player strokes by knowing the rule and when you get free relief. If you are unaware of these abnormal course conditions and that you get free relief from them in the general area you could be hitting harder shots than need be and ultimately wasting strokes.

Know the Rules

Players are given relief when their ball touches or is in one of these abnormal course conditions. They are also given relief when these abnormal course conditions interferes with there area of intended stance or swing.
