Fairway bell

I recently played on a course which had 3-4 bells to indicate that the fairways was clear on a blind tee shot. The bells were on large wooden posts (telephone pole sized). There was no local rule about this. WOuld you consider this an immovable object and would you get relief for swing and stance and line of play?

 

Thanks

It is certainly an immovable object, and in my book it would also be classified as an immovable obstruction (nitpicking, I know, but obstruction is the term in the rules).  You would get relief for your swing and stance, but generally not for your intended line of play.  Check Rule 16.1a

Details are important in the rules. Thank you for the interpretation.
