The GUI has requested that all clubs consider having 9 holes Qualifying Competitions. These competitions were introduced by CONGU to enable players who do not have the time or who are unable to complete 18 Holes, to maintain a handicap which reflects their current playing ability.
9 Hole qualifying competitions are open to all players, but should not be a substitute for 18 Hole qualifying competitions.
The basis of these competitions is that an SSS is applied for the 9 Hole played and 18 stableford points are added for the 9 Holes not played. However, such 9 Hole Qualifying competitions cannot be facilitated at the same time as an 18 Hole competition.
With this in mind we are running our first 9 hole qualifying competition on Wednesday 16th May from 17:00 to 19:00hrs and the sheet is now open.
NB: A player cannot return two qualifying scores on same day.
