Before leaving a bunker, players should carefully fill and smooth over all holes and footprints made by him, and then leave the rake with the handle pointing toward the tee of the hole being played.

1. Always enter the bunker at the lowest point.
2. Pull the rake toward you as you exit the bunker.
3. If required, rake other affected areas.

Bunker Rake Policy

Always leave the rake in the flat of the bunker with the handle pointing towards the tee of the hole being played and parallel to the line of flight of the ball. Rakes should be placed as far from the edge as possible.

Damage to Green

Flagsticks

Players should ensure that, when putting down bags or the flagstick, no damage is done to the putting green and that neither they nor their caddies damage the hole by standing close to it when handling the flagstick or in removing the ball from the hole. The flagstick should be properly replaced in the hole before the players leave the putting green.

Handling the flag

1. Don’t drop the flagstick on the putting surface as it will cause damage.
2. Always lower the flagstick by using a club or by hand.
3. Avoid damage to the surrounds by placing the stick in the centre of the cup.

Removing Ball

Players must NOT use their putter to remove their golf ball from the hole.
