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.

We would urge all members to register now and familiarise themselves with the WHS system.

Our girls played spectacular golf against a sporting Waterford side and we wish them the very best of luck in the next leg. We hope to see them soon for our next open team event.
Next out were our Ladies Junior cup team on Saturday, who were defeated by near neighbours Dungarvan in a close contest. Well done to all the players on both sides who battled hard in testing conditions. We wish Dungarvan all the best in the next round.
Finally on Sunday we had better fortunes as our Mixed team overcame opponents Lismore in very exciting matches. The team was delighted with a thrilling win and well done to all involved. We look forward to supporting them in the next round.
A female panel is needed to help with our Junior Sector which will commence on Sunday evenings, start date to be confirmed. Garda vetting and a safeguarding course 1 is a requirement and will be organised online by the club.
If you can spare some time, please add your name to the panel, your help will be much appreciated.
MARKING OF CARDS
Golf Ireland guidelines have stated that all 3 handicaps must be recorded on cards for competition and casual rounds for handicap purposes. To avoid disqualification you must record your h/cap index, playing h/cap and most importantly the course h/cap, all of these are available on the Golf Ireland app and also on screen when you log in for competitions. All scores must be recorded by the marker and signed in agreement with the player before being returned no later than 30mins after you finish your round.
The guidelines for now are members with no restriction on households permitted per booking for social or club competitions. Meanwhile all regulations have to be adhered to when entering and playing your round. Members please make yourselves aware of the changing guidelines in relation to golf from the government and Golf Ireland, information regarding any changes will be posted on the wwwgolfireland.ie
