OUt of Bounds

Postby parmike » Mon May 30, 2016 11:40 am

On a golf course alongside hole nr. 2, there is a paddock for horses, the paddock fence has upright posts for every 2 meters.
Every fourth post is painted white on the top, those posts show are out of bound posts, what about the posts in between, are they out of bonds post or just part of yhe paddock fence???

They probably hadn't got enough paint.
The fence itself defines the OOB margin. The posts don't in fact need to be painted at all. It is only stakes that need to be white.
Does it say anything specific about that boundary on the scorecard?
