2017 Ladies 9 Hole Qualifying Handicap Matrix

You may be aware that the Ladies Course SSS (Standard Scratch Score) has changed from 74 to 75. As we play 9 Hole Qualifying Competitions in our Club, this has had an impact on our 9 Hole Qualifying handicap calculations.

We have generated new “Ready Reckoners” to allow you to select your correct handicap when playing 9 Hole Qualifying golf competitions. You will need to know your Exact Handicap when selecting your 9 Hole Qualifying handicap (you will find your Exact Handicap on the Handicap Board in the office in the locker room or you can also check Golfnet).

Ready Reckoners have been placed as follows:-

  1. On the 2nd board on the left in the ladies locker room office (just past the window).
  2. On the wall beside the swipe-in computer in the Pro shop.
  3. In the Ladies section of the Club website.


2017 9 Hole Qualifying Handicap Matrix

If you are interested in working out your own 9 Hole Qualifying Handicap, this is the calculation (as specified in CONGU Paragraph 22.3).

[Exact Handicap + Nine-Hole SSS – (Nine-Hole Par x2)] / 2

In Skerries our Nine Hole SSS is 75 and our Nine Hole Par is 34.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me or any member of the Handicap Committee and we will be happy to help.

Competition Tee Time Cancellation Policy

March 2017 Men’s Club


The main purpose of his policy is to ensure:

  1. That all members who wish to play golf on competition days get every opportunity to do so.
  2. That time slots have their full complement of players, particularly in fourball, foresomes and team competitions.

A player who fails to turn up for their reserved tee time without giving prior notification is preventing this from happening.


In the event that you do not show up for your tee time and your name has not been removed from the Timesheet, the Men’s Committee will be notified and appropriate action may be taken if deemed necessary.  The full fee will also be deducted from your account.

Competition time Sheets will close at 10pm from the 1st of March 2017.  If you have your name removed after the 10pm closing time by the Pro-shop, 40% of the fee will be deducted from your General Account.

Notification of Withdrawal

As a matter of courtesy, and as stipulated in the Bye-Laws of Skerries Golf Club players must notify their opposition and partner in good time if they are withdrawing from the sheet. (Reserving a time is a commitment to play with the other players in the same time slot).  Most of our members contacts details are available on the website / and or the back pages of the fixtures diary.

Waiting List:

If you have put your name on the waiting list for any competition, it is your sole responsibility to ensure that you are aware of any Tee Time that you are subsequently allocated when on the waiting list.

The Competition Closing Time will be 10pm going forward and you will be notified of any tee time allocated to you, even last minute.

When your name is on the waiting list, the onus will still be on you to check the timesheet before you retire for the night to see if you have got a slot.  If when retiring you are still on the waiting list then you must make the decision to either remove your name from the waiting list or awake early the next morning to see if you have got a slot between the time of retiring to bed and the closure of the competition.

If you are allocated a tee time via the waiting list, then you are subject to all aspects of the cancellation policy, procedures and sanctions as outlined above.

Poor Weather:    Course Open

As can happen from time to time, Poor weather may prohibit play. The Following policy applies.

  • If the course remains open and you are on the timesheet, you have a responsibility to the other players on the line to turn up and play.
  • You must start your round at the stipulated Tee Time that you have booked on the Timesheet.
  • As per the rule of Golf, “Sheltering from weather is not permitted” and this includes sheltering in the Pro-Shop in the hope that a shower will pass.
  • If you have not “teed off” at your stipulated Tee Time, then you have forfeited your Tee Time.
  • You will not be able re-enter the timesheet or the competition later in the day if the weather clears.
  • You will be subject to the cancellation policy as outlined above.

Poor Weather:   Course Closed

Should the course be closed due to poor weather yet re-opens later in the morning then the following applies

  • The Timesheet will begin at the Time that the course re-opens
  • All times prior to re-opening will have been lost
  • Members who lost their official Tee Time, may put their names on the timesheet at a later time provided there is space to do so within the official Competition Time.


Complaints in relation to the failure of a player to turn up for their tee time, or in relation to the failure of a player to notify partners and opposition of withdrawal, or any other breaches of this policy should be addressed, in writing, to the Honorary Secretary.
