OUT OF BOUNDS – Defined by the line between the course-side points, at ground level, of white stakes or fence posts; by white lines on the ground that connect stakes or roads; by the inside edge of paved roads and beyond, even if ball comes to rest on another part of course.

WOOD CHIPS AND MULCH – Are loose impediments.

INTEGRAL OBJECTS – Include cables, rods, wires or wrappings when closely attached to trees, artificial walls and pilings when located in penalty areas and bunkers, unless otherwise denoted.

BALL DEFLECTED BY POWER LINE – If it is known or virtually certain that a player’s ball hit a power line [or tower or a wire or pole supporting a power line during the round, the stroke does not count. The player must play a ball without penalty from where the previous stroke was made (see Rule 14.6 for what to do). Model Local Rule E-11.

TEMPORARY IMMOVABLE OBSTRUCTIONS – Include greenside fans, starting/scoring tents & temporary PKBGT signage. Local Rule as prescribed in Section 8 of the Committee Procedures is in effect. Model Local Rule F-23.

IMMOVABLE OBSTRUCTIONS CLOSE TO PUTTING GREEN (BALL IN GENERAL AREA CUT TO FAIRWAY HEIGHT) – Relief from interference by an immovable obstruction may be taken under Rule 16.1. In addition, if the player’s ball lies off the putting green and in the general area cut to fairway height and an immovable obstruction within two club-lengths of the putting green and within two club-lengths of the ball intervenes on the line of play, the player may take relief under Rule 16.1. Model Local Rule F-5.

RELIEF FROM AERATION HOLES – If a player’s ball lies in or touches an aeration hole: (a) Ball in General Area. The player may take relief under Rule 16.1b (drop ball). If the ball comes to rest in another aeration hole the player may take relief again under this Local Rule. (b) Ball on Putting Green. The player may take relief under Rule 16.1d (place ball). But interference does not exist if the aeration hole only interferes with the player’s stance or, on the putting green, on the player’s line of play. Model Local Rule E-4. 

SPECTATOR ADVICE – Under no circumstances are spectators able to give advice or a player ask a spectator for advice. In addition, any conversation between player/spectator may be construed as advice. This includes any conversation between player/spectator in a language other than English. Players are responsible for the actions of their relatives and spectators in regards to this rule. In either instance, penalty for breach of this rule is two strokes, at the discretion of the rules official(s).

SPECTATORS - Spectators must remain on cart paths or in the rough, and approximately 15 yards from the players, except when helping to search for a ball. There may be no communication between players and spectators that could be deemed advice of any nature for the duration of the 18 holes. Please be aware of other groups and their positions. Spectators are encouraged to forecaddie.

TIME OF STARTING – A player is responsible for being at the assigned tee promptly to begin play on time. A player should arrive at the assigned tee prior to the player’s starting time in order to receive all information. Players will not be called to assigned tees. See Rule 5.3a.

STOPPING AND RESUMING PLAY – Local Rule as prescribed in Section 8 of the Committee Procedures is in effect. Model Local Rule J-1. A suspension of play for a dangerous situation will be signaled by one prolonged note of a siren or horn. All players will be notified of suspension verbally and must stop play immediately. All other suspensions will be signaled by 3 consecutive notes of a siren or horn. In either case, resumption of play will be signaled by 2 short notes of a siren or horn (unless otherwise indicated). See Rule 5.7b. Note: All practice areas are closed during a suspension for a dangerous situation until the Committee has declared them open. Players who practice will be asked to stop practicing; failure to stop practicing might result in disqualification.

TRANSPORTATION - Players shall walk at all times during a stipulated round. UNLESS shuttles are provided by tour officials or volunteers in designated shuttle areas noted in the Notice to Competitors. Players are prohibited from sitting in or riding in a cart driven by a family member and/or coach during the round played. Players are prohibited to ride other than these shuttle areas. This rule is waived in the event of inclement weather/emergency situation where player safety is in question.

CADDIES – All non-Discovery players are prohibited from using a caddie during a stipulated round unless otherwise stated in the Notice to Competitors.

PRACTICING BETWEEN ROUNDS - Prior to and after a round in stroke play, a player may practice on the designated practice area. Rule 5.2b covering practice in stroke play is modified in this way: A player may not practice on the competition course before or between rounds on a competition day. Model Local Rule I-1.2.

SCORECARDS – In the event that a defined, roped scoring area exist, a scorecard is deemed returned to the Committee when the competitor leaves the scoring area. In the absence of such area, a scorecard is deemed returned to the Committee when the score is posted on the official scoreboard. In the case that no physical scoreboard is used, a scorecard is deemed returned to the Committee when the score has been verified by the scorer. No alteration may be made on a scorecard by a competitor after it is returned to the Committee. Competitors are encouraged to remain in the scoreboard area until their scores are posted.

HOW TO DECIDE TIES - In the event of a tie for first place, there will be a hole-by-hole sudden death playoff starting at a hole determined by the Committee. For all other ties, a scorecard tie-breaking system will be used. In multi-day events, the tiebreaker will be the lowest score of the most recent round, and then if necessary, the lowest score of the next previous round, etc. In the event there is still a tie, the tie will then be broken by the scores of the most recent round starting on the 18th hole and working backwards to determine trophy positions. In one-day events, all other ties will be determined by a scorecard play-off starting on the 18th hole and working backwards to determine trophy positions. For ties in both one-day and multi-day events, tour points will be equally distributed among tied players.

CLOSE OF COMPETITION- The competition is deemed to have closed when the trophy has been presented to the winner or, in the absence of a prize ceremony, when the Committee has approved all scores.

LIVE SCORING - Players are required to provide their scorecard to a scoring checkpoint station when asked.

Play is governed by the 2019 USGA Rules of Golf except as amended by the PKBGT Rules of Play and the following
Local Rules shown below. Disregard local rules printed on the club score card.

PREFERRED LIES IN PLACE

DOUBT TO PROCEDURE: Only members of the Rules Committee are authorized to render a Rules Decision. If in
doubt as to the correct procedure, and a member of the Rules Committee is not present, play a second ball under Rule
20.1c (3) and report the facts to the Committee even if the scores are the same with both balls. The player MUST,
before proceeding, announce which ball she intends to use for score. Failure to do so shall result in the first ball to be
scored or possible disqualification.


RULES HOTLINE: Call 336-347-8537. If a group is waiting for a ruling, and the hole in front of that group is
open, wave the following group to play through.

NOTICE TO COMPETITORS

COURSE TEES: Players will play the black PKBGT Bell Tee markers, the Purple PKBGT Prep tee markers and the lilac PKBGT Futures Tee markers. See PKBGT scorecard for details.

PLAY READY GOLF: Ready golf means that ALL golfers should go to their balls as soon as possible and get READY to play their shots. While waiting to hit, players should SURVEY their shot, SELECT their clubs, TAKE them from their bags, and STAND at their balls READY to step up and make the shot when it is their turn. That’s Ready Golf.

PREFERRED LIES: PLAYERS MAY LIFT, CLEAN & PLACE THE BALL ONE CLUB LENGTH ONLY IN CLOSELY MOWN AREAS OF THE HOLE CURRENTLY BEING PLAYED: After lifting the ball, the player must place it on a spot within one club length of and not nearer the hole than where it originally lay, that is not in a penalty area and not on a putting green. A player may place her ball only once.

BUNKERS/WASTE AREAS: There are NO bunkers as defined by the Rules. All sandy areas are played as part of
the general area. When in doubt that the ball is in a sandy area or a bunker, play the ball as it is in the general area
and must play ball as it lies.

SAND CART PATH: A player DOES NOT receive relief if their ball comes to rest on a sand cart path or if the sand cart path interferes with a player’s stance or swing.

OUT OF BOUNDS: Is defined by the inside edge of all paved public roads. A ball that crosses a road and comes to
rest on any other part of the course other than the hole being played, the ball is defined as out of bounds.

RULES COMMITTEE: Erika Hallmark(PKBGT OIC), Taylor Stoy (PKBGT), Eric Eshelman (Rules Official), Carolyn Sidor (Rules Official), Ron Sidor (Rules Official), Bob Ubbing (Rules Official)
