The Otter Creek Regular Series Event was cancelled due to a breach of the Rules of Golf -
33-2b/1 Holes Relocated and/or Tee-Markers Moved During Stroke Play Round
Q. During a round in a stroke play competition, one or more holes were relocated and/or tee-markers moved. What is the proper procedure?
A. If this was authorised by the Committee, the round should be declared null and void. In stroke play, the Committee is prohibited from relocating a hole and from moving tee-markers except as provided in the Exception and Note to Rule 33-2b or in circumstances such as those in Decisions 25-1b/4 or 33-2b/1.5.
If this was done without the authority or sanction of the Committee, generally the round should be declared null and void. However, if the course has not been altered significantly and no competitor has been given an undue advantage or disadvantage the Committee would be justified in letting the round stand.
Unfortunately a miscommunication between Greens Crew the day of the event affected the chance of conditions on the course and the Round was null and void. We will have a reschedule date soon.
