Hi, when I started submitting my scores for handicap tracking I didn't enter my starting handicap of 22. I am now trying to re-enter this and recalcualte my handicap accordingly, but when I do it doesn't appear to do anything? I've submitted 5 rounds since tracking on golf shake and it's given me a playing handicap of 25, but if I had started on 22, I wouldn't be this high, especially considering one of the rounds was an 87 gross.
I have started a venture called The Golf Hub. http://thegolfhub.net where I am collecting golf tuition and information about golf professionals that have a presence on the www.
I hope that one day Darren will be kind enough to place a link on Golf shake to it.
Please take a look and tell me how I should structure it.
I have been a social golfer for a few years now and decided to join a club for the first time this January so I could get competition CONGU handicap. The pro in our shop as told me I need to hand in the 3 supplementary cards to get my initial handicap along with £3. £1 per card. Is this common practice? I always thought that when you joined a club any fees towards a handicap were part of the membership.
We (Harlow Hill Golf Society) are a relatively new (2 years old) golf society, predominantly based out of North/West Yorkshire, however, we do have a couple of members based in Scotland and the Midlands. We originally set up as a group of friends, following retirement from an amateur football team, Harlow Hill FC in Harrogate. The natural order of things took place and we now try to find our successes, failures, delights and frustrations on the Golf course as opposed to the football field.
We have had 14 members in our first 2 years but are looking to build on this and are keen to recruit anyone looking to play some semi regular golf within a society outside of a club environment. We have a good range of golfers, mainly at the higher end of the scale, ranging from 16 through to 28 and a couple still learning. We try to promote fairly regular games/matches with cup competitions and aim for 2 trips a year, either domestically or abroad.
Any interest please let me know and I'd happy to share more info.
