Hole 5

Robin Hood

Par 5/HCP 5


A long Dogleg with a very narrow fairway from the Tee-Off.

The whole hole has out of bounds on all sides (also behind the Green).

It would be best if you played the Tee-Off as a Fade to prevent the trees on the right to hinder your play.

It’s recommended to place the second shot in the middle of the fairway behind the dogleg.

The third shot into the Green is dependant on the position of the flag.

Please take the Penalty Area in front of the Green into consideration!


Out of Bounds: Rule A-1

Out of bounds is defined by the line between the course-side points at ground level of white stakes and fence posts.

Boundary objects (white stakes) are treated as immovable even if they are movable or any part of them is movable (see Rule 8.1a)



Local Rule E-5

Alternative for Out of Bounds

When a player’s ball has not been found or is known or virtually certain to be out of bounds, the player may proceed as follows rather than proceeding under stroke and distance.

For two penalty strokes, the player may take relief by dropping the original ball or another ball in this relief area (see Rule 14.3)

But the player may not use this option to take relief for the original ball when:

Penalty for Playing Ball from a Wrong Place in Breach of Local Rule: General Penalty Under Rule 14.7a.

This Local Rule is not appropriate for national competitions or other competitions for skilled players.




Local Rule A-4

During play of Hole 5, the Fairway of Hole 6 on the right of the hole, defined by white stakes with black caps], is Out of bounds.

These stakes are treated as boundary objects during the play of Hole 5. For all other holes, they are immovable obstructions.



Yellow Penalty Area Rule B-1

The pit filled with stones in front of the Green of hole 5 is a yellow penalty area. The stones must not be intentionally moved to improve the stance or the stroke. Yellow penalty area (marked with yellow lines or yellow stakes) give the player two relief options (Rules 17.1d(1) and (2)).
