Handicaps Players Resposibilities
Each Member must Provide to his Home Club information regarding scores in Non Qualifying Competitions if so directed by a Union – see Clause 4.5(b)
In Ireland, players and clubs must report to Home Clubs:
(a) All Qualifying Scores together with the relevant Competition Scratch Score.
(b) All Non-Qualifying Scores from Team and Society Golf played over a course for which the Union has allotted a Standard Scratch Score together with notification of the relevant SSS.
Players should be aware of the significance of the Stableford/Nett Double Bogey Adjustment. This adjustment allows a player who has a ‘bad’ score on a hole(s) or does not complete a hole(s), for any reason, to continue to record a score on subsequent holes for handicap purposes. This sustains the golfing interest and at the same time provides valuable handicap information. See Clause 19.
