I believe you are enquiring to whether an out of bounds stake may be removed from the ground if it interferes with your line of play. The answer is no, it may not be removed as it marks the boundary of the course, you must leave it in the ground, or take a penalty drop if you so wish.

You need to know where the out of bounds stake is defining as out of bounds. If this hole is left of the OB then yes, it is out of bounds. If it came back to the right, it sounds like it was inbounds.

When is the ball out of bounds in a game of basketball?

What happens if your golf ball is next to a stake?

As long as it is not an out of bounds stake, you can pull it out of the ground and put it to one side, then play your ball. If it is an out of bounds stake, this is deemed to mark the boundary of the course and therefore you cannot move it, simply play the ball as it lies. The above is only correct with respect to out of bounds stakes. Under the Rules of Golf they are deemed to be fixed. If a player moves such a stake and replaces it before he plays his next stroke he will still be penalised for removing it. Loss of hole in match play or two strokes in stroke play. Water Hazards, regular or lateral, are also marked by way of stakes. Thes are deemed to be movable obstructions and can, therefore, be removed if they interfere with a player's stance or area of intended swing. A Committee can, however, deem these stakes to be immovable obstructions (fixed) by qa Local Rule, but the player will be entitled to relief, without penalty, under Rule 24-2b.
