Hi Bruce
Please could you remind me of the changes to the black course for the modified black course?
Thanks

Essentially, if there is is a shorter tee in front of the Black one, you play it instead. In some cases that's the Blue tee (e.g. hole 1), in some it's the red tee (e.g. hole 2). There are a few exceptions (OBlong OBleft, Roc or Roll, 18) where there is no difference

Good maps and OB lists, thanks for the clarity.

One OB clarification sought please:

Is the OB line on the course boundary (and any other fences for that matter) defined by the bottom edge of the metal fence, or is this ignored and a straight line between the inside edges of the fence posts imagined?

I imagine the answer might be ‘Use the fence line if there is one, take a straight line between posts if there isn’t’? If this is the case, it may help to have stated the fence line isn’t always straight - sometimes it will favour the player, sometimes it won’t and that’s just the way it is. I’m hoping this will help avoid inconsistencies of some groups applying 'benefit of the doubt' instead of calling 'OB'.

It is always the straight line between the posts
