    Looks like they're getting ready to plant some sweet peas or pansies!

    Agree about moving it though but would like to think the noticeboard made mention of this before heading out in case the want you to treat it as GUR

    unless it was actually hindering your stance or line of swing etc then there is no free relief.

    You don't get relief but you can remove the fence in the same way that you might move a red or yellow (but not white!) stake. Don't forget to replace it afterwards though.

    No sure what this means - I'm sure it is an area of GUR, but there wouldn't be any more relief options in this instance as its a line of play off the green issue.
    some metal woods,
    any old irons,
    Pick up balls....

    10.8 and moving the right way again...

    Apologies I wasn't really referring to relief options but I guess i didn't make that clear, sorry

    You might be sure its an area of GUR but without something else to identify it as such, like a sign-post or spray writing or a notice on the noticeboard, I cant really assume its GUR, so if my ball landed in there instead of short I'd like to think the club had provided some direction on how to proceed

    Agreed.

    However, the approved practice of white lines or coloured stakes can often get combined into the use of white wire hoops like these as a general GUR marking by green staff ie they are seen as a suitable moveable while line - all without further clarification anywhere.

    Committees should do better, but the player would be entitled to treat such an area as GUR even in the absence of any further clarification.
