HANDICAPS, EVENTS & PRIZES
To be able to win a major event trophy and gain shop credit all players must have 10 or more playing scores in their world handicap system playing profile, either via medal, role up events or general play with another member/player with WHS status to mark and sign your card before entering into the WHS system.
Each year all golfers must add at least 5 handicap qualifying scores within their WHS account to be able to win prize credit and major events. Please be aware this also includes team events where all players in the team must for-fill the above requirements in order for the whole team to win and or gain shop credit.
The playing record can be viewed on the My England Golf App or the IG booking APP. Please remember England Golf do recommend you enter as many social scores as you can, this can be done over 9 or 18 holes.
All players must have a 10 scores recorded even if you are a single figure handicapper or a high handicapper. We encourage all golfers that do not have 10 scores in the system to put in cards whenever you are playing socially, playing under the rules of golf. If you are entering a social score you must let the pro shop know before starting your round. A full playing record is 20 scores with your best 8 scores averaged out.
England Golf does not want to restrict anyone from playing this game we all love and have the privilege to play.
