You are responsible for all the information on your own scorecard. So, if you are not sure of your exact handicap, check on line before you play. Your dedicated website has so much information, please use it. Do not confuse any Patriot's handicap you may have, this is a separate allowance.
When you sign your card you have effectively validated the score. How can you be sure it is correct if in a stableford you do not keep a record of your points score on the card you are marking? To clarify, if you sign for less than you actually scored you will not be in breach of the rules.
In stating the obvious we hope to avoid adding to the four recent disqualifications we have had. It is a salutory lesson if you play really well and you are not rewarded!
Now that winter rules are in place and play is off the winter tees there will be no handicap adjustments. The main advantage to the golfer is the “lift and place rule”. This is often misused so please read the following definition:
“Preferred lies’ means a golfer can lift up the ball (if he or she want to) that is landed on a closely-mown area and move it to improve the ball position, but not closer to the hole. A closely-mown area is any area of the course that is cut to fairway height or less and includes paths cut through the rough and the fringe/apron around the green. If the ball doesn’t lie on a closely-mown area, the player can’t take a preferred lie.”
On the 24th of July you helped to raise £927.50 in memory of Ron. His son Lee and wife Stephanie presented the cheque last month to Princess Alice Hospice and wish to thank all of those that participated in making this a very special and memorable day.
