A new twist.

 

Will your club be among the first who permit replacement of damaged clubs? Will your club write its own version of the new local rule and permit cracked drivers to be replaced? Can your club write its own local rule which contradicts the rules of golf?

The short answer is no. I know you like brevity.

I note the intention is for The Committee to decide on the Local Rule just before the event.

So expect it for Tour Events but not lesser stuff.

If the rules allow a local rule then that rule cannot be contrary to the rules of golf

Isn't there a rule which says clubs may not have a local rule that is contrary to the rules of golf?
But lots do.

Model Local Rules

This section lists authorized Model Local Rules that may be used by a Committee:

  • These can either be adopted in their entirety or can serve as an example of how to write a particular type of Local Rule.
  • Local Rules are authorized only if they are consistent with the policies established in this section.
  • In order to ensure that play is conducted in accordance with the Rules of Golf, a Committee must not use a Local Rule to waive or modify the Rules of Golf simply because it might prefer a Rule to be different.
  • If the Committee believes that a Local Rule not covered by these principles may be needed because of local abnormal conditions that interfere with fair play, it should:
  • Consult RandA.org to check if any additional Model Local Rule is available to cover such a condition, or
  • Consult The R&A directly.

No and no.

 

If it is in the list it is authorised. See post #7

There are number of authorised Local Rules where a LR seems to be contrary to a substantive Rule.

In these cases the Ruling Bodies have recognised that in specific situations the substantive rule is neither appropriate nor desirable. In these limited cases the RBs have approved/authorised a Local Rule. The RBs are the only body who can authorise Local Rules.

Sometimes outside organisations (clubs etc) may have a particular issue which may be unique to their course. They may contact their appropriate RB who might give them a specific authorisation fro a Local Rule.

Not really. Authorised Local Rules are Rules. They are just specific to a local situation.

I can't fathom what you are trying to prove but 

 

A Local Rule is a modification of a Rule or an additional Rule ...

 

Local Rules have the same status as a Rule of Golf ....

Nothing of import in this.  Providing the possibility of a local rule to allow a choice between two opposing situations (eg use of DMD not allowed/ use of DMD allowed) is just that - a choice. 

Whichever you chose becomes the approved golf rule for your course.    It doesn't contradict the other choice: it just supplants it.

Does all this mean that you don't agree with the idea of local rules? Is that the point?

Sir Humphrey would be proud :)

Not at all.  He would disapprove of clarity in place  of obfuscation.

I wonder why you have taken so long to worry about this. Local Rules have been around and added to for a long time. See the old Decision 33-8b.
