To submit a General Play Score for handicap purposes you must register your intent to play before you play your round. You can do this in one of three ways:
WHS Rules of Handicapping
Rule 2 - Course must have a current Course Rating and Slope Rating where length and normal playing difficulty is maintained at a consistent level.
Rule 2.1a - A player is required to pre-register their intent to submit an Acceptable Score in General Play before the player starts the round.
For members of other clubs: If a score is not returned on the Club's software or on the Golf Ireland App, the completed Scorecard must be returned to the Home Club with evidence of pre-registration (i.e. photocopy/photograph of this form) as soon as possible to ensure the score is recorded.
