Gui Voucher system Revision

Due to the Covid-19 outbreak; Paper Vouchers were not issued on Weds 18th of March nor for the weekend of Saturday 21st / Sun 22nd of March. All 11 winners on these dates have been topped up on their ClubV1 wallet less the relevant competition fee. On a trial basis all Comp prize winners from June 29th and beyond will have their clubV1 wallet topped up as a replacement to Paper Vouchers.
We hope that members will adopt this new arrangement as a means to a sleeker,safer
 Prize setup.

  • From R McIlroy: I've recently won 3 prizes @ €30, can I get a paper GUI voucher for €50 and leave the balance in my account ? .. Answer: As a wise man once said: "Yes We Can" !

  • From Seve: Can I use monies built up in my ClubV1 Wallet to pay off 2021 membership? Answer: Yes
  • From P Harrington: How do I top up my Wallet ?

New Tee Time Booking System & Handicap Software

11/06/2020 Update:
The Howdidido App still functions for Tee Time booking, Ger C has updated all the email addresses within the New ClubV1 app which should fix issues members have encountered with matching of email address. If you still cannot use the ClubV1 app, please forward the email address you originally used the register on Howdidido to 
Over the coming days we will migrate to a New Handicapping software application. This will allow us to comply with the launch of The WHS in November.
Please install the Clubv1 members Hub on your Smartphone / Device a.s.a.p
Below is information from our software provider Clubsystems..
There is no charge whatsoever to use the ClubV1 Members app. When upgrading to ClubV1, HowDidiDo is very much still relevant. Scores and results will still be published through HDiD as well as closed and open competitions. members will be able to download both the club ClubV1 members app and the HDiD app however, please note that both of these apps serve a different purpose. 

Members will be able to check their results and handicaps in the HowDidiDo App. Members will be able to book their tee times through the ClubV1 member's app if the club opts to use booking provided by Club Systems. Members can download these apps free of charge from the respective app stores on their mobile device. There will inevitably be some teething problems we thank you for patience in this regard.
