SCORECARDS

It is the responsibility of each competitor to ensure the correct handicap is recorded on the competition scorecard.

After each hole the marker should check the score with the competitor and record it clearly on the competition scorecard.

After completion of the round, the competitor must total his score, ensure the card is signed appropriately by the marker and after signing it himself, return it to the committee as soon as possible.  Ref. Rule 6.6b

Penalty for breach of Rule 6.6b: DISQUALIFICATION

RETURNING CARDS IN COMPETITIONS, HOME OR AWAY

The player shall ensure that ALL competition cards in qualifying events, WHETHER OR NOT COMPLETE, are returned to the organising committee.

 

IT IS A SERIOUS OFFENCE TO WITHHOLD A CARD EQUAL TO OR BETTER THAN THE STANDARD SCRATCH SCORE.

COMPETITIONS

It is expected that every player who enters a qualifying competition intends to complete the round. An incomplete round should be accompanied by an acceptable reason, stated on the card, to the Competition Committee on return.

A card not returned or returned incomplete is not automatically entitled to 0.1.

Competitors are responsible and must ensure that their cards are returned in all competitions and entered in the computer.

Failure to comply will result in the player being suspended from the following club competition.

Competitors are responsible for ensuring that their cards are signed and show the correct handicap.
