WORLD HANDICAPPING SYSTEM AND GOLF IRELAND APP at www.golfireland.ie

The World Handicap System was launched in November 2020.  Please go to the Golf Ireland website and find your handicap index.  The WHS is an averaging system based using the best 8 of the last 20 scores on your record.  To access your handicap information, you must register and create a new account at www.golfireland.ie using your eight-digit CDH number and 4-digit PIN, both of which are printed on the rear of your GUI/ILGU Member Card.  You can also now download the new Golf Ireland App which will also enable you to view your own handicap index and playing record.  We would urge all members to register now and familiarise themselves with the WHS system.

 

HOW TO USE YOUR NEW WHS HANDICAP INDEX

Course & Slope Rating tables are located at the Club but are also available on the Golf Ireland App.  You simply have to choose the tees you are playing off that day and cross reference your Handicap Index on the Course & Slope Rating table to ascertain your Course Handicap. Different tees on the same course could have varying slope ratings. Your Course Handicap determines the number of strokes you give or receive off the tee set you intend to play from red, yellow, white or blue.

Then, depending on the format you are playing (singles, fourball etc.) you will apply a handicap allowance to your course handicap which will present you with your playing handicap.

For example: The recommended handicap allowance for individual stroke play events is 95% which means a player could have a handicap index of 18.2, course handicap of 20 but a playing handicap of 19.
More information on the World Handicap System can be found at www.golfnet.ie/whs

WORLD HANDICAPPING SYSTEM AND GOLF IRELAND APP at www.golfireland.ie

The World Handicap System was launched in November 2020.  Please go to the Golf Ireland website and find your handicap index.  The WHS is an averaging system based using the best 8 of the last 20 scores on your record.  To access your handicap information, you must register and create a new account at www.golfireland.ie using your eight-digit CDH number and 4-digit PIN, both of which are printed on the rear of your GUI/ILGU Member Card.  You can also now download the new Golf Ireland App which will also enable you to view your own handicap index and playing record.  We would urge all members to register now and familiarise themselves with the WHS system.

 

HOW TO USE YOUR NEW WHS HANDICAP INDEX

Course & Slope Rating tables are located at the Club but are also available on the Golf Ireland App.  You simply have to choose the tees you are playing off that day and cross reference your Handicap Index on the Course & Slope Rating table to ascertain your Course Handicap. Different tees on the same course could have varying slope ratings. Your Course Handicap determines the number of strokes you give or receive off the tee set you intend to play from red, yellow, white or blue.

Then, depending on the format you are playing (singles, fourball etc.) you will apply a handicap allowance to your course handicap which will present you with your playing handicap.

For example: The recommended handicap allowance for individual stroke play events is 95% which means a player could have a handicap index of 18.2, course handicap of 20 but a playing handicap of 19.
More information on the World Handicap System can be found at www.golfnet.ie/whs

WORLD HANDICAPPING SYSTEM AND GOLF IRELAND APP at www.golfireland.ie

The World Handicap System was launched in November 2020.  Please go to the Golf Ireland website and find your handicap index.  The WHS is an averaging system based using the best 8 of the last 20 scores on your record.  To access your handicap information, you must register and create a new account at www.golfireland.ie using your eight-digit CDH number and 4-digit PIN, both of which are printed on the rear of your GUI/ILGU Member Card.  You can also now download the new Golf Ireland App which will also enable you to view your own handicap index and playing record.  We would urge all members to register now and familiarise themselves with the WHS system.

 

HOW TO USE YOUR NEW WHS HANDICAP INDEX

Course & Slope Rating tables are located at the Club but are also available on the Golf Ireland App.  You simply have to choose the tees you are playing off that day and cross reference your Handicap Index on the Course & Slope Rating table to ascertain your Course Handicap. Different tees on the same course could have varying slope ratings. Your Course Handicap determines the number of strokes you give or receive off the tee set you intend to play from red, yellow, white or blue.

Then, depending on the format you are playing (singles, fourball etc.) you will apply a handicap allowance to your course handicap which will present you with your playing handicap.

For example: The recommended handicap allowance for individual stroke play events is 95% which means a player could have a handicap index of 18.2, course handicap of 20 but a playing handicap of 19.
More information on the World Handicap System can be found at www.golfnet.ie/whs

Golfers are delighted with further easing of restrictions since 7th June in line with the Irish Government’s ‘Path Ahead’. We’d like to extend a warm welcome to visitors returning again to play in our popular Open competitions on Tuesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.  

 

The current Return to Golf Protocol for golf clubs and golfers prepared by Golf Ireland relating to the new guidelines is available for viewing on the Golf Ireland website www.golfireland.ie.

All forms of competitive golf may be undertaken, including so called ‘Major’ competitions, internal club matchplay and club open competitions. 

Clubs can also if they wish adjust starting intervals on their timesheets to facilitate a greater number of players.   

A maximum of 100 spectators (not including players or officials) may attend organised outdoor events, and this will apply to organised inter-club matches.  

All golf activities should be organised based on “arrival-play-depart without delay.
