If a player consistently disregards these rules during a round over a period of time to the detriment of others, the Board may take appropriate disciplinary action against the offending player. Such action may, for example, include prohibiting play for a limited time on the course or in certain number of competitions. This is considered to be justifiable in terms of protecting the interest of the majority of golfers who wish to play in accordance with these rules and regulations.
