When the new World handicap System comes into effect on the 2nd of November, the notion of a “competitive” handicap disappears and it is for each club to put in place their own rules as to who can or cannot win a competition.

It has been decided that, in order to be able to win a competition, a member must have at least 7 qualifying scores in their handicap record going back only 12 months. A qualifying score is either from a competition or from submitting a supplementary card played on a measured course to competition rules (putting out, etc.). This will be an ongoing requirement for all adult members from November.

When winter comes, it is likely that the majority of competitions will not be qualifying games. Therefore you have until November, or when the bad weather arrives this year, to make sure your playing record is what it needs to be. You can check this on “How Did I Do”, “My Results” and 1 year history.

Without this, when the 2021 competition season starts, usually with the first round of the Laird for the men, the Lillian Osborne Trophy for the ladies, and the March Texas Scramble for the Seniors; you will not be eligible to win it (although you will be able to play in it). This will also apply to the Captain’s drive in on the 7th of November.

Please make every effort to get to this level if you intend to play, and compete, in club competitions when the WHS is active.

Please contact Steve Clark, steve.clark@ford.com, if you have any questions.
