When you’re playing away from home in non-qualifying competitions, you need to return scores to your club.England Golf introduced this clause of the CONGU handicapping system to prevent players manipulating the system to their advantage and to keep the game fair.This was prompted by a number of cases of players who protected inflated handicaps, only to repeatedly collect high-value rewards when playing in competitions away from home.The scores provide clubs with evidence to support handicap reviews.
Recording of Non-Qualifying Away Scores
From 1st January 2017 England Golf require players to return all scores in competitive golf in Non-Qualifying Competitions away from the players home clubs, to assist handicap committees with handicap reviews. (CONGU UHS - Clause 4.5b/8.12).
England Golf has made this decision in order to promote the integrity of the system, and maintain player confidence in handicapping.
Please note these scores must not directly affect a player’s handicap, but should be used as ‘supporting evidence’ of performance when it comes to a handicap review.
Individual scores or Team results must be returned in all Singles, Am-Am and 4BBB with the exception of Texas Scrambles, Foursomes and Greensome competitions, or casual social rounds.
In addition to this, clubs should also be aware of regular roll-ups that take place at their club, and the performance of players in the various formats of those roll ups, without the need to formally record individual scores.
To assist with the return of scores, we advise that clubs outline a process to allow players to record these scores.
It is recommended that this is done directly to the Handicap Committee, and that the Committee keep a copy of all information for the current year and one previous year. The information does not have to be recorded on the handicap software, but should be stored in a format that can be used for any handicap review.
Information to be recorded:
Failure to return these scores by the player could result in loss or suspension of handicap under clause 24.1.
