The board informs that for reasons given by the State of Emergency Declaration, Oporto Golf Club has been closed, as well as the access to the course and other facilities.
Thanks for the collaboration and understanding of all the Partners,
1 - Out of Bounds – White stakes, fences.
Ground under repair – Blue stakes
Penalty Area – Yellow and Red stakes or lines.
2 - The area defined by "wrong avant-green” (avant green from other hole that’s not being played) is a no play zone that is to be treated as an abnormal course condition. Free relief must be taken from interference by the no play zone under Rule 16.1f.
3 - Immovable obstructions close to putting green: In addition to the types of interference described in Rule 16.1a, when a ball lies in the general area, interference also exists if an immovable obstruction is: on the player’s line of play, is within two club-lengths of the putting green, and is within two club-lengths of the ball. The player may take relief under Rule 16.1b. (Exception – There is no relief under this Local Rule if the player chooses a line of play that is clearly unreasonable.)
4 - Immovable Obstructions (Rule 16.1A)
4.1 - 100mts and 150 mts stakes.
4.2 - All artificial roads and paths on the course, are treated as immovable obstructions from which free relief is allowed under Rule 16.1.
