For all play at this course, a player may obtain distance information by using a device that measures distance only.  If, during a stipulated round, a player uses a distance-measuring device that is designed to gauge or measure other conditions that might affect his play (e.g. gradient, wind speed, temperature, etc.), the player is in breach of Rule 14.3, for which the penalty is disqualification, regardless of whether any such additional function is actually used.

Adverse Weather & Lightning

In the event of adverse or potentially dangerous weather, i.e. thunder/lightning, it is the responsibility of each individual golfer to decide to continue to play or to return to the Clubhouse. A decision to continue play is entirely at the player’s risk.
