Rule of the week #10 Repairing damage on the putting green

Hi Ladies,

Last year,  you could only repair ball-marks or old hole plugs on the green without penalty. The new rule allows you to repair almost any damage, including spike marks, shoe damage, scrapes and indentations caused be equipment or a flagstick, old turf or hole plugs, animal tracks and embedded objects like stones or acorns.

Damage on the green does not include normal practices for maintaining the course like aeration holes or grooves, irrigation or rain or other natural forces, natural surface imperfection such as weeds or bare areas or natural wear of the hole.
