    Handicaps..how often should you include rounds

    We encourage you to track every round unless you are playing in some different format, don't adhere fully to the rules or playing a course set-up that differs to that on the scorecard (ie winter and shorter)

    another returning member!

    Hi Dave. Very much in the same boat as yourself. Returned to the game in Oct and play weekly with my son. Can't remember the info I used previously with this site, but it's good to be back.

    Hi all. Have returned to golf since Nov last year after a break of 4 to 5 years. Am playing some of my best ever golf as I am finally letting the clubs do the work. Something people have been telling me for years. Bring it on 2019.
  12. Looking for playing partners for the occasional game either midweek or the weekends out of season. Preferably off 15 or less I’m the Lincolnshire area! Also want to play in some mixed comps this year so must have an active handicap.

  14. Hi I'm sure this has been covered several times before but I cannot find a clear answer. If I understand club handicaps correctly these are calculated on the results from club competitions. Therefore you could play several rounds of non competition golf with excellent scores which would usually lower your handicap but actually never get cut. However, as I'm not a member of a club and use Golfshake to calculate my handicap, how often should I include my scores in handicap tracking to reflect the above...or shouldn't I be looking at it this way at all?

    i have to admit that i was a regular on the old..old forum but when it was updated i found it slightly more involved in navigating around and slowly stopped using it, now it's more like the old old forum i'll give it another go.

    Worst Rule Breach You've Seen on Golf Course

    There is a bloke at my club who carries a spare ball in his pocket. this ball will always be the same make and number as the one he is playing with. I think you know what he does next. Unfortunately, despite the fact so many of us make jokes about it when he is in earshot, nobody has challenged him yest.

    texas scramble

    Seriously, I just read that 10 times, and it doesn't make any sense. This is how a Texas scramble works. It is a medal event, so the total shots of each hole are added together. All the players handicaps are then added together, and if there are 4 players, then the total handicap is divided by 4. The handicap is then taken from the gross score. Some competitions may specify that a team has to play off of 90% of their handicap (10% deducted). Therefore, if all of you played off of 25, that would be a total of 100-10%/4, therefore the teams handicap would be 22.5. I think you may have got a little confused, as the competition would not be 10% of the handicap, it would 10% deducted. Hope you understand

    golf clubs

    Loads of tips really. 1) For me the most important thing above everything else if friendliness. Gold is a social activity, and if you can't make friends it's a waist of time. 2) How well is the course kept and tended. Next year I am leaving my club because the green keepers allow it to get poor before the sort the problem 3) Some people are concerned about the club house, personally I don't tend to use it. I think the tightening up on drink driving laws contributed to this 4) The pro shop 5) Is there a decent and helpful resident pro 6) Is the club run efficiently, but at the same time doesn't have too many politics 7) How interesting is the course, because it is quite easy to get bored. 8) Last but not least, the price

  23. What about Alternative to Stroke and Distance The Committee Procedures allow for the introduction of additional relief options when a ball is lost outside a penalty area or out of bounds, by way of Model Local Rule E-5. This local rule is appropriate for general play where golfers are playing casual rounds or playing their own competitions. Under the CONGU® Unified Handicapping System scores must not be submitted for handicap adjustment if this local rule is in place. Where the Local Rule is in use for general play, the club must ensure they remind players it is not allowed when scores are to be submitted for handicap adjustment (Qualifying Competitions and Supplementary Scores).
  24. Hi everyone, I am currently in my final year at the University of Leeds and am doing a project on injuries in golf caused by wayward golf balls - such as the high profile incident at the Ryder Cup earlier this year! I have a quick survey (3 mins) and if you would be able to fill it out for me it would be a massive help. https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/2THFCJR Thanks! Alex
