Staked and Unstaked Trees

Several new trees have been added to a few existing ones to provide a better screen between the 2nd and 4th holes at Brokenhurst. The new ones are a similar size to the existing trees and need some support from stakes until they get fully established. The existing trees, being already well rooted, aren’t staked. If you aren’t paying attention it is easy to think that all the trees are staked and so take free relief under the local rule when you aren’t allowed to do so.

Coversely – if you don’t take relief from a staked tree which has been defined as a No Play Zone you will incur a penalty.

Whether and how young trees and if they are deemed to be No Play Zones will be defined within the local rules. Make sure you read and understand these rules before you play.
