2020 Local Rules
- The driver must exercise the utmost caution and is civilly and criminally liable for damage caused by negligent driving.
- The use of carts (including single-seaters) is prohibited:
- when course conditions do not allow it
- with more passengers than what the vehicle is designed for
- with drivers under 16 years of age
- Carts must circulate on the lanes and roughs; respecting the prohibition signs, they may cross the fairways transversely, according to the 90-degree rule, but may not travel across them obliquely and/or longitudinally.
- Carts are not allowed on the teeing areas, on the avant-greens and collars, in the spaces between bunkers and greens, on fairways if they are too soft, or on any muddy ground.
- Carts outside the lanes must not cross and/or stop within 10 metres of the greens and within 5 metres of the edge of the bunkers, starting tees, and water hazards.
- The transit of carts is prohibited on the following bridges:
- hole 1, left behind the green
- hole 11, right towards the green.
- Players at hole 17 must walk up to the start and leave their carts on the lane behind the back stairs to the men’s tee or in the opening to the left of the women’s tee.
When a player’s ball is located in a part of the General Area cut off at fairway height or lower, the player may place a ball within 15 cm of the point where the ball was located, no closer to the hole, remaining in the General Area.
The out of bounds is defined by the line between the points on the course side at the ground level lined with white posts and fences and the perimeter pavement outside the Clubhouse. The paved lane to the right of the tee of hole 10 is out of bounds.
To the left of hole 7, the white and green poles between holes 7 and 8 define the out of bounds only during play of hole 7; they are immovable obstructions during play of all other holes.
Surfacing roots on fairways.
If a player’s ball is in the general area and there is interference with the outcropping roots of a tree in a part of the general area cut off at fairway height or below, those roots are treated as ground under repair. The player may remedy the interference according to Rule 16.1b. However, there is no interference if the roots interfere only with the player’s stance.
Play is prohibited on the Repair Ground between holes 15 and 17.
In addition to the options provided for by the rule, a ball may be dropped in the marked Dropping Zone. (Rule 14.3)
Hole 1: the nets and protective poles to the right of the fairway and behind the putting green are integral objects; roads and paths in clay, sand, or lapilli are integral objects.
The putting green to the left of the green of hole 18 and the putting green to the left of the tee of hole 1 are considered practice areas. With reference to Rule 13.1f, a wrong green includes the avant-green surrounding the green by the length of 1 club.
The clocks located by the tees of hole 1 show the official time.
Males: YELLOW Tee
Females: RED Tee
The Federation has repeatedly urged people to correctly follow the rules on slow play, inviting Clubs and Tournament Committees to take on board the indications given: maintaining the correct distance from the group in front, and taking the right amount of time to make the shot are considered correct behaviour, whilst respecting the players following behind and the members playing after the round. This allows everyone to have fun and play even on the busiest days.
Rule 6-7 recalls that play shall be without delay and in accordance with any speed of play guidelines the Committee may lay down. In particular, Note 2 specifies that the Committee may set maximum times to complete a conventional round, hole, or stroke under the conditions of a tournament.
Point 6 of the Tournament Conditions of the Italian Golf Federation has established the rules for slow play in accordance with the rules of Golf.
The penalty of 2 strokes, for slow play, to be added to the score for hole 18, is applied:
- to all players from the first tee who have exceeded the maximum time limit by 5 minutes or more;
- to all players of the following teams who have exceeded their maximum time limit by 5 minutes or more and exceeded their starting interval from the group ahead of them by 5 minutes or more.
This regulation complements the provision concerning the timing of out-of-position groups: the maximum time allowed for a shot is 40 seconds. Counting starts when the player has addressed his\her ball, it is his\her turn to play, and he\she can play without interference or distraction. On the green, the count starts from when the player has had reasonable time to lift and clean the ball and remove loose impediments on the line. At the same time, any time spent studying the line of play behind the ball or beyond the hole is included in the count.
CORRECT BEHAVIOUR TO AVOID SLOW PLAY
- it is important to stay behind the team ahead and not to be in front of the team that follows;
- play the provisional ball immediately when you suspect that there may be difficulties in finding the ball you have just played;
- let the team behind you pass (if you are looking for a ball, or have to go back and replay your shot, or if the group behind you is faster): letting them pass is not a shame, nor a disgrace, but it is a duty not only towards the group following you, but also in regards to all subsequent starts.
- in “Stableford” tournaments, pick up the ball, without finishing the hole, when the number of strokes needed to score points has finished;
- stopping at the tee-shot is only allowed if you have lost distance from the group in front: you must play the tee-shot as soon as the players from the previous start are out of range.
- anticipate the preparation time of the shot: put on your glove before your turn, study the shot, and choose your club so that you are ready when it is your turn;
- leave the bag near the tee of the next hole and not in front of the green
- the flag must be repositioned by the penultimate player;
- the score must be compiled on the next tee and not on the green of the hole just played;
- do not stop to retrieve balls that have ended up in the water or out of bounds when those following are ready to play.
In order to get used to this rule, the Sports Committee has instructed the referee and/or the marshal to precede the penalty with a first official warning to the out-of-position team (after verifying the possible existence of extenuating circumstances) and a second warning if after three holes the team has not recovered its position.
Course etiquette rules
- raise the pitch marks with the pitch lifter;
- pick up the ball from the hole with your hands and not by levering the putter;
- walk in such a way that the nails of your shoes do not damage the grass carpet;
- It is forbidden to wear shoes with heels.
- enter and exit from the lowest area that is closest to your ball;
- carefully level out any traces left after walking through and taking your shot using the rakes provided or, if there isn’t one, in another suitable manner. As far as possible, leave the rake in such a way that it does not interfere with play.
- put the clods in place and settle them;
- avoid causing damage to the course, particularly on the tees, by dislodging clods when making practice movements;
- avoid driving carts and golf carts over tees, greens, bunkers, and areas between bunkers and greens. Use golf carts as much as possible on the fairways, following the course signs and the instructions on the golf cart and on the instruction sheet available from the caddie-master;
- do not leave cigarette butts and other objects on the course, including broken tees;
- do not take practice strokes on the course; however, it is permitted to repeat a stroke if this does not delay play.
- on weekdays, two-person games take precedence over three-person and four-person games, and three-person games over four-person games, only if the teams have lost distance to the teams ahead of them; on tournament days, public holidays and on days when there are large numbers of people, see the relevant provisions (games over an 18-hole round take precedence over games over shorter rounds);
- games with more than four players are not allowed, except during the period from 15 July to 15 September when games with five players are allowed;
- before starting to play, players starting on holes other than hole 1 must prioritise those playing the holes in the correct sequence.
- Always ensure that you are in a position not to hit, with the ball or club or clods, other players, or to be hit yourself.
- Avoid misbehaviour of any kind, including but not limited to throwing clubs, foul language, shouting, and gestures of anger that may particularly cause damage to one’s own or others’ equipment and/or the course, and any other behaviour that may in any case adversely affect the play of fellow players.
