( A ) Rules of Golf as approved by the Royal & Anicent Golf Club of St. Andrews and US Golf Association rules as well as the local rules of the golf club will apply.
Refer to http://www.randa.org for Rules of Golf ,
( B ) Special Rules for MEGS events

1.0 Local rules to be used in events held by MEGS
2.0. Immovable Obstruction - ball rests on concrete footpath with point of nearest relief practically not playable
Rule 24-2 provides free drop for immovable obstruction. In case when concrete footpath is involved, players may drop on the side of the footpath. If the footpath has on one side a very steep slope or heavy bushes or water hazards, and on the other side an area, which is playable, the player is allowed to drop without penalty on the other side of the footpath, even though his ball rests nearer to the side, which is practically not playable. He shall drop his ball within one club length at this alternative point of nearest relief but not nearer to the hole.

3.0 Drop Zones
For holes with drop zones provided by the course, the player may use the drop zones but with two strokes penalty.

4.0. Exemption to the Rule 3-2 Failure to Hole Out
To speed up the game, on the putting green, balls at distance shorter than the distance between the edge of the hole and the lower end of the grip of the player's putter, are deemed to be holed out with one stroke added to the score.

5.0 Score Cards

a. Player’s name and number of strokes played for each hole should be clearly written down on the scorecard. After the match is finished, the score card should be duly signed by the player and the marker, and submitted to the Committee before taking shower / lunch.

b. Any scorecard returned without complete signatures will be deemed void. According to the Rules of Golf, any person returning an incorrectly signed scorecard will be disqualified. In particular, players are required to take note of the following as no exception will be made.

(i) Scorecard must be signed by both the player and the marker, any scorecard without either one’s signature will be regarded as void.

(ii) It is the marker’s responsibility to take down the score of his/her teammate (the player). The marker may put down other scores, including his/her own, on the scorecard but that scorecard remains to be the player’s property. To avoid any dispute, it is advisable that a marker should keep his/her independent scorecard if he/she wishes to take down his/her own score for subsequent checking.

a. It is the responsibility of the player to check whether the number of strokes is correctly marked for each hole by the marker. A player signing and returning an incorrectly marked scorecard will be disqualified.

b. For the above paragraph (b(i)), the Committee would like to clarify that disqualification will only apply to incorrectly marked scores, which should be distinguished from incorrect computations. A score is deemed to be incorrect if the actual strokes played in a particular hole is different from the number of strokes recorded. Hence, if on a signed up scorecard, a player put down 4 but he/she actually played 6, he/she will be disqualified. If the player has recorded correctly his/her score for each hole but has added the total number of strokes wrongly, or has made a mistake in calculating the Stableford points, then the player may not be disqualified. However, the Committee will make a decision on whether or not to disqualify a player who has made computation errors taking into account of the facts.

c. The Committee reserves the rights to disqualify a player at any time after the event even though the result may have been announced and prizes given out. If a prize has been presented to a player who has been subsequently disqualified, the Committee reserves the rights to revoke his/her prize and the player is required to surrender the prize on demand.

d. If a prize has been presented to a wrong person as a result of computation errors, even though no one may be disqualified from the event, the Committee reserves the rights to repossess the prize and give it to the rightful winner.

Best Gross Winner

r. For the Best Gross prize, the player must complete every hole in order to allow himself in contention. Hence, for example, if a player picked up his ball in a particular hole as he would not have scored any Stableford point and marked the score as 9, even though he may eventually still came back with the lowest gross score, he is not entitled to win the Best Gross prize. The marker should indicate on the score card which hole the player has picked up.
