The Noordwijkse Golfclub is one of the best courses in the Netherlands and Europe. The combination of its layout near the North Sea shore, which gives it its links character, the remarkable views and archictecture makes this course very challenging.
The Noordwijkse Golfclub has several parking lots, of which those nearest the club are reserved for Committee Members and holders of a parking permit.
For safety reasons, i.e. easy access for the fire department, ambulance etc., you are kindly requested not to park directly opposite the entrance to the clubhouse or on the roundabout in front of the entrance.
GUR is defined by blue stakes, white lines, or a “GUR” notice and includes the practice bunker between the 9th hole and the driving range.
Through the green, seams of cut turf (not the turf itself) are deemed to be ground under repair. If the ball lies in or touches the seam or the seam interferes with the area of intended swing, relief is available under Rule 25-1. All seams within the cut turf area are considered the same seam.
(The local rule 3e in Appendix 1 is in effect.)
Damage from (fallow) deer hoofs on the green and in a bunker are deemed to be ground under repair. On the green see rule 25-1b.iii. In a bunker see rule 25-1b.ii.
Note for 2 and 3: interference with the player’s stance is deemed not to be, of itself, interference under this local rule.
The fence along the driving range on the right side of hole 9 is an obstruction. Relief can be taken according to rule 24-2 with the restriction that the player must determine the nearest point of relief without crossing over, through or under the obstruction.
Relief from interference by an immovable obstruction may be taken under Rule 24-2. In addition, if a ball lies through the green and an immovable obstruction on or within two club-lengths of the putting green and within two club-lengths of the ball intervenes on the line of play between the ball and the hole, the player may take relief as follows:
The ball must be lifted and dropped at the nearest point to where the ball lay that (a) is not nearer the hole, (b) avoids intervention and (c) is not in a hazard or on a putting green.
If the player’s ball lies on the putting green and an immovable obstruction within two club-lengths of the putting green intervenes on his line of putt, the player may take relief as follows:
The ball must be lifted and placed at the nearest point to where the ball lay that (a) is not nearer the hole, (b) avoids intervention and (c) is not in a hazard. The ball may be cleaned when lifted
Rules 18-2, 18-3 and 20-1 are modified as follows: When a player’s ball lies on the putting green, there is no penalty if the ball or ball-marker is accidentally moved by the player, his partner, his opponent, or any of their caddies or equipment. The moved ball or ball-marker must be replaced as provided in Rules 18-2, 18-3 and 20-1.
This Local Rule applies only when the player’s ball or ball-marker lies on the putting green and any movement is accidental.
Note: If it is determined that a player’s ball on the putting green was moved as a result of wind, water or some other natural cause such as the effects of gravity, the ball must be played as it lies from its new location. A ball-marker moved in such circumstances is replaced.”
(The local rule published by the R&A effective 1/1/2017 is in effect)
A player may obtain distance information by use of a distance-measuring device. If, during a stipulated round, a player uses a distance-measuring device to gauge or measure other conditions that might affect his play (e.g. elevation changes, wind speed, etc.), the player is in breach of Rule 14-3.
Exception: measuring devises that give information about distances used with certain clubs may be used, if this information has been obtained before the round.
