Dear Member

The Open competitions season is now underway and the Competitions Committee would like to remind all members playing in such events of their obligation to report non-qualifying away competitions scores to Chesterfield Golf Club.

By way of a reminder, at the foot of this email are the contents of a communication that was sent out to all playing members in 2017 regarding England Golf’s rule change for the recording of non-qualifying scores.

To submit an away score go to the Chesterfield Golf Club website, hover your mouse over "Members" in the header area, then click the first option "Away Score Entry" this will take you to the Away Scores Entry Page where you will see a big red button, click this button to enter details of your away score.

With regards, The Competitions & Handicaps Committee

ENGLAND GOLF GUIDANCE ON RECORDING NON-QUALIFYING SCORES

From 1st January 2017 England Golf require that players return all scores in non-qualifying competitions away from a player’s home club and have issued new guidance.

In summary:

Individual scores or Team results are to be notified to Chesterfield Golf Club for

Singles, Am-Am and 4BBB competitions played away from home and that are non-qualifying for handicap purposes, with the exception of Texas Scrambles, Foursomes and Greensome competitions, or casual social rounds.

The information to be returned is:

o Date of competition

o Format of competition (including handicap allowance)

o Venue/course

o Tees used

o SSS of the course

o Names of playing partners (if a team event)

o Score Returned

As well as promoting integrity and players’ confidence in the handicapping system, it is intended these measures will give the Competition Committee better guidance and information when it comes to the annual handicap review.

England Golf are resolute that players comply with their new obligations, failure to do so could result in suspension or loss of handicap under clause 24.1 of the CONGU UHS.

Please note these scores will NOT directly affect a players handicap, but will be used as 'supporting evidence' of performance when it comes to a handicap review.
