Local Rules come into play

Ground Under Repair

All areas on the course affected by the tornado damage (especially in the rough between the 12th and 14th holes) are to be treated under rule 25 as GUR.
Players must lift and drop at the nearest point of relief, not nearer the hole.

Broken branches that are still connected to trees are also to be treated as GUR.

OH&S Safety Warning

Under OH&S requirements, it is considered dangerous to search for your ball in a refuse stockpile. If your ball is lost in such a situation, you are to leave your ball and take relief at the nearest point as per rule 25(GUR).

Please note: The 14th tee has been moved 75 metres down the fairway until further notice. This temporary measure has been introduced to facilitate a safer playing environment until the damage has been cleared.

By order of the Match Committee.
