In order to obtain a handicap you will have to submit three scores, one of which must be from the Medal Tees. Each scorecard must be signed by a member who already holds a full handicap. Supplementary Scores, booked in beforehand to the Professionals shop, can also count as medal rounds for this purpose.
In order to retain your handicap it is necessary to return a minimum of three strokeplay scores each year (non-returns do not count).
All members can check their handicaps and competition results on the 'HowDidIdo' system by clicking the button below and logging in on the 'HowDidIdo' website. If you have not done so already you need to register with 'HowDidIdo' before being able to access the site.
