Local rules serve as an addition to the “Rules of Golf” valid in a particular year. They specify the signage used on the course, objects and buildings on the course and sometimes also situations which can occur during play. Their main function is to speed up play by avoiding the need for a lengthy search in the “Rules of Golf” or the assistance of marshals or referees. By reading the following text, you can help speed up play for yourself and other golfers and make your round an altogether more pleasant experience!

The handicap limit at our golf course is 45.

The borders of the golf course are delimited by:

  • electric fencing posts
  • white stakes or white lines

The inner out of bounds is marked by white stakes located between holes 17 and 18 and is only to be taken into account while playing hole No. 17. While
playing the 18th hole the white stakes are considered immovable obstructions.

Water hazards – marked by yellow or red (lateral water hazard) stakes or lines

Drop zone – on the 4th and 7th holes (Please follow the Rules of Golf, appendix I, part A, paragraph 6.)

Ground under repair – marked by blue stakes or by white lines (G.U.R.)

Immovable obstructions:

  • all information boards
  • benches, waste bins, golf ball washers, paths with artificial surface and stone walls lining the paths, bridges
  • wooden railings
  • all parts of the irrigation system
  • distance markers on the short cut surfaces
  • all trees equipped with supporting poles or ropes and all bushes up to 1.5 metres in height, watering bowls of all newly planted trees and groups of bushes with applied bark
  • electricity poles, steps over the electric fencing barrier
  • WC, clock stands at the starter´s box and the starter´s box

Movable obstructions:

  • all information signs
  • all stakes with the exception of the stakes delimiting the borders of the golf course i.e. distance, water, GUR
  • stones in the bunkers, ropes and elastics around the green and lining the paths

We kindly ask you:

  • not to enter the rough, approach, runaway areas and areas between bunkers and green with your pull trolleys
  • not to enter the rough, approach, runaway areas and areas between bunkers and green with your buggies. Drive only on the semi-rough, and if you need to enter the fairway with your buggy please do so only at a 90 degree angle, drive only on dedicated paths and follow the direction signs while driving between individual holes

Please replace divots and repair your pitch marks.
Please refill the divots on the tees.
Keep clean and tidy.

The ideal playing time for a round at Albatross is 4.5 hours or less. Please pay attention to the marshals´ instructions signalled with coloured flags:

All distance markers are in metres to the front of the green.

Please leave the golf course in a better condition than before you entered it!

Thank you for your help!
