How to get a Handicap

For those joining:

  • Current handicap (Active) – supplied to the Handicap Secretary . This will be uploaded to the How Did I Do computer system so that the golfers can play in all applicable competitions.
  • No Handicap – To obtain a Handicap, golfers must hand in 3 * 18 Hole Scorecards or 6 * 9 Hole Scorecards or a mixture of both, having played with someone who already has a handicap. For a scorecard to qualify for Handicap purposes, the player MUST note on their scorecard which tees were played from (Men/Junior Men = White or Yellow & Ladies/Junior Ladies = Red). If you do not know anyone who has a handicap please contact any committee member directly or email and we will help to arrange this for you. These scores should be forwarded to the Handicap Secretary – who will then formally issue a handicap allowing the individual to play in competitions.
  • So long as you retain your membership you will keep an active handicap, there is no longer a requirement to enter three competitions in a twelve-month period.
