Finnish Open 2019
Fotisgolf - Lokala regler

Tävlingens datum är fastslaget till 9-11. 08. 2019

Dessa officiella reglerna som är översatta till svenska och finska är endast för referens. Vid tvister gäller BARA och ENDAST de engelska reglerna. 
 

As a complement to the official rules by the World Football golf Association, the following rules and exceptions will be used during all the Finnish Open competitions.”

Teeing platsen / platser

Teeing platserna är alltid märkta med RÖDA märken och dess bredd kan variera. Du skall spela mellan de två RÖDA märkena eller upp till två (2) meter bakom dem. 

Teeing platserna kommer under Lördagens och Söndagen tävlingar att flytta på sig mellan tävlingen för att få lite variationer, svårare eller kanske lättare banor.

Nästan alla teeing -platser är på vanligt gräs, endast ett fåtal har konstgräs under sig. 

Klädsel och skodon

Normala fotbollsskor är tillåtna i tävlingen och på banan. Vi rekommenderar att använda fotbolls strumpor. Detta eftersom man kan hamna och sparka upp bollen från ett dike.

Rökning

Rökning nere på banorna är förbjudet. Rökning är tillåtet i närheten av buggnaderna och på Café området. Vänligen sök dig till en askkop. Det finns av dem på de mest strategiska ställena.

Tomma burkar och flaskor

Vänligen lämna inte burkar eller flaskor nere på banorna, placera dem i de soptunnor som finns nere på banan.

Out of bounds (OB)

The fields or agriculture areas around the course is always OB. This may come to play for example on holes 4, 5 and 17. The ditch before the field is playable.

The ball will NOT automatically be out of bounds if it ends up on another fairway. OB on other fairway exists only on holes 5 (right side), hole 6, hole 11 (on the right side) and hole 13.

If the ball goes out of bounds you get a one kick penalty and have to bring the ball back to where it was last played from.

More specific out of bounds and rules will be explained for each hole separately later in this document.

Starting holes & Forced spacing

Start times will be made so that there is always 2 holes between the flights and we try to keep that during the whole round. When the group in front of you have played 2 holes you are allowed to start your own round. Especially on holes 8 – 11 and 17 – 18 it’s important that there will be a forced two holes spacing between flights and may not be played at the same time. This helps us to avoid to do extra OB.

Ball unplayable

The player may deem his ball unplayable at any place on the course (except when the ball is out of bounds). The player will then get a one kick penalty and have two choices: 1. place the ball within 3 meters (not nearer to the hole or next obstacle), or 2. return to the spot of the previous kick. On holes 11 and 15 a player may not choose option 2.

Playoff

If after the final round the first, second or third place is shared between two or more players with the same amount of kicks, they will play a “sudden death” playoff. First on hole 8, then on hole 18, then back to 8 and so on. The player who goes first will be drawn on every hole (coin flip if two players, long straw if three or more).

Out of bounds (OB) definition

Den RÖDA bollen är OB, Den GRÖNA är inte.

Fairway of the hole being played goes along the right side of the picture.

It may sound like there are many different local rules, but much of it is really information about the holes (and will be kind of self-explanatory once you get to the course). 

We have chosen to avoid making extra OB:s as much as possible, but as the fairways sometimes go close to each other, please be aware of other groups and players. 

All ditches are dry and it is usually possible to play from the ditch, but you may of course deem the ball unplayable. 

Once you get to the course, these rules will be easier to understand
