5. Relief from the Cart Path may be taken on either side - Extended Cart Path Rule can apply with Group Consensus
6. Ground Under Repair not marked - Please use common sense and get a Group Consensus if free relief should be granted - if there is a disagreement, please take a picture of the area, take a drop and the Tour Director will make a final decision after the round. Relief is one club length no closer to the hole.  You may also choose to play it as it lies always if there is a disagreement, we would suggest this as the best option. See Abnormal Course Condition below
