Dear Members During this period of prolonged frozen ground conditions, and continuing through until we cease ‘Preferred Lies / Winter Rules, we confirm the Status of a Temporary Green to be a ‘Wrong Green’ when not in Play. Rule 25 / 3 applies Explanation When playing a hole with the Temporary Green open, the Permanent Green becomes a ‘Wrong Green’ if your ball comes to rest on it. Free Relief MUST be taken. Similarly, in order to protect it, during ‘Winter Rules’ when the Permanent Green is in play and the Temporary Green is not, the Temporary Green becomes a ‘Wrong Green’ if your ball comes to rest on it. Free Relief MUST be taken. A Temporary Green has no status when not under ‘Winter Rules’ and as such it is classified as ‘through the Green’ (ie: Just a normal part of the golf course)
