Obtaining a Handicap

Important notes on the new WORLD HANDICAP SYSTEM (WHS)

Dear Members,

Please be informed that Katameya Dunes as of today, October 1st have gladly joined the global direction of converting to the use of the fully centralized world Handicap system which will be followed by all golf clubs worldwide.

Player Responsibilities in order to comply with the requirements of the Rules of Handicapping, a player is expected to:

Act with integrity by following the Rules of Handicapping and to refrain from using, or circumventing, the Rules of Handicapping for the purpose of gaining an unfair advantage.

Have only one Handicap Index from a single scoring record, which is managed by the player’s home club in accordance with the Rules of Handicapping.

Note: This Handicap Index will apply elsewhere, including at all other golf clubs of which the player is a member.

Ensure each golf club of which they are a member knows the details of all other golf clubs that they are a member of & which golf club that they have designated to be their home club.

Ensure that, prior to playing a round in an authorized format of play, they Know their current Handicap Index, Inform the Handicap Committee or the Committee in charge of the competition of any discrepancies with their Handicap Index and provide details of any outstanding scores yet to be submitted or posted to their scoring record, Know the holes where handicap strokes are to be given or received, and Record their correct handicap on the scorecard in a stroke-play competition.

Attempt to make the best score possible at each hole.

Where applicable, ensure all acceptable scores are submitted for handicap purposes, including scores from outside the player’s home jurisdiction. Acceptable scores should be submitted Before midnight on the day of play, and in the correct chronological order.

Submit acceptable scores to provide reasonable evidence of their demonstrated ability.

Provide any new golf club with the full details of their previous playing history, Handicap Index held, memberships and any other information relevant to their golfing ability.

Play by the Rules of Golf.

Certify the scores of fellow players.

Maintaining a Handicap and Supplementary Scores

A players must feel that his handicap is being pro-actively administered and that it is “moving” to accurately reflect his playing ability.
To ensure this handicap can be altered in two following ways:

All individual tournaments at Katameya Dunes are run through the computerized handicap system software – handicapmaster- This automatically adjusts member’s handicaps according to the CONGU adjustment system. For further information on these adjustments please ask.

Members should also advise us of scores they have in tournaments at other clubs. These will be entered manually into the system and then an adjustment would be made.

Supplementary Scores – the key to the success of the handicap system
Members are encouraged to submit ALL scorecards from every round they play. These will be entered into the system as if a competitive round was played. Simply ensure that you write “supplementary score” on the scorecard, which tees were used, and also ensure that there is one card per person.

It may be introduced that members MUST submit a minimum number of cards, tournament and supplementary, in order to play in club competitions. We therefore encourage members to submit all their score cards.
