803 Obstacles and Relief


  1. A player must choose the stance that results in the least movement of any obstacle that is a permanent or integral part of the course. Once a stance has been taken, the player may not move an obstacle in order to make room for a throwing motion. It is legal for a player's throwing motion to cause incidental movement of an obstacle.
  2. A player is not allowed to move any obstacle on the course, with the following exceptions:
    1. A player may move casual obstacles that are on the playing surface where a supporting point may be placed when taking a stance. A casual obstacle is any item or collection of loose debris (such as stones, leaves, twigs, or unconnected branches), or any item as designated by the Director.
    2. A player may request that other people move themselves or their belongings.
    3. A player may restore course equipment to its proper working order, including the removal of obstacles.
  3. A player who moves any obstacle on the course other than as allowed above receives one penalty throw.
