The WHS system calculates all single competitions at 95%.
With the introduction of the WHS system late last year we were unable to work with it, so starting this year can everyone be mindful that it may take a while for us to become accustomed to the process and be patient during the first couple of months.
PRE-REGISTRATION PRIOR TO PLAY ACCORDING TO WHS:
G2.1a (2) Pre-Registration Prior To Play In GB&I each National Union determines that it is a requirement that all rounds for handicapping purposes (other than those used for the Initial Handicap Award) must be preregistered either through the computer software or manually. Entering a competition or being named in a draw or a booking system is not in itself pre-registration. Registration must be confirmed on the day itself in the manner prescribed by the club/Committee. A round has not started until the player has teed off; and any player who for whatever reason does not start his/her round after pre-registering must be removed from the event and must not have a score posted on his/her handicap record. Players who start a round but who do not play the minimum number of holes required may be subject to a penalty score (Rule 7.1b). Players who withdraw after pre-registration without a valid reason acceptable to the Committee could, depending on the particular circumstances, be subject to disciplinary sanctions under the Terms of the Competition or Code of Conduct. In submitting General Play scores, players must ensure that they do not breach Rule 5.2 (Practice) of the Rules of Golf.
Please sign the registration book which is kept in the Pro shop behind the counter as set out above.
All bunkers are in play unless marked as GUR or blue stacked,
Preferred lies can be used and is limited to 6 inches and the area cannot be smoothed before placing. Please make an effort to smooth the sand using your club and/or their feet.
Players are always required to leave the flagstick in the hole and not to touch it.
Players may centre the flagstick in a safe manner, which does not involve using the hand even when wearing a glove or using a towel (for example by using a club).
The centering of the flagstick may be allowed while another player putts,
(this maybe desirable in windy conditions or leaning towards the player making the stroke).
Repair all pitch marks.
