Course Rules and Dress Code

Hylands Local Rule Regarding the use of Distance-Measuring Devices

“Distance measuring devices are permitted for all play (i.e., casual play and all competitions), provided the device 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, windspeed, 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.”

Hylands Local Rule Regarding Stones in Bunkers

“Stones in bunkers are movable obstructions (Rule 24-1 applies).”
