Bunker classed as "through the green"

Postby arthur » Thu Apr 21, 2011 9:25 am

I may have asked this question before
:roll:
if a bunker is being renovated and it is marked as GUR am I right in saying you can have a free drop but it must be in the bunker or outside under penalty of 1 stroke.

If the bunker is being completely renovated and the committee class the bunker as "through the green" am I right in saying you get a free drop outside the bunker without penalty

Arthur, this is now automatic under. Dec
25/13 Bunker Totally Under Repair

If a bunker is being renovated and the Committee defines the entire bunker as ground under repair, the bunker loses its status as a hazard and is automatically classified as “through the green.” Therefore, unless a Committee specifically states otherwise, Rule 25-1b(i) applies, not Rule 25-1b(ii). (Revised)

Hi Arthur,

"if a bunker is being renovated and it is marked as GUR am I right in saying you can have a free drop but it must be in the bunker or outside under penalty of 1 stroke."

Correct. R25-1b(ii) (a)(b).

If the bunker is being completely renovated and the committee class the bunker as "through the green" am I right in saying you get a free drop outside the bunker without penalty

Correct.
The declaration of through the green was dropped in 2010. it now automatically becomes through the green. R25-1b applies. See the revised Decision25/13.

Regards,
Ron.

Old topic but...

Therefore, unless a Committee specifically states otherwise, Rule 25-1b(i) applies, not Rule 25-1b(ii).


Why would Committee want to "state otherwise" i.e. still to keep the bunker as a hazard?

They may still want the player to play from the bunker but from an area of his choice.
