Revised 16 hole Route

 Due to the additional works which will create a large pond to the Front of the 14th hole, and to the left and beyond the 7th Green. A revised 16hole route is now in operation.

  • The only changes are: when you finish playing the7th green  > Play the 8th hole as normal.
  • After the 8th Go to the Temp Tee Box (at the 100m marker) on the 15th Fairway, and play to the normal 15th Green
  • After that 15th Green Play from the 13th Tee to the normal 13th Green.





Yellow Peril Competition advice

 Yellow Peril Competition Stableford: 

Use Howdidido Playing Handicap & minus domestic cuts from this PH.

  • On each hole, two team members play their own white ball for Singles Stableford Scorecard and one plays the "yellow Peril" ball for team Scorecard. If YP player gets 2pts they add that to their own singles scorecard and also on the Team Scorecard.
  •   Take "yellow" ball in rotation. Lowest handicap (including domestic Cuts) on first hole: Middle handicap on second hole: Highest handicap on third hole. Keep to this order for the 16 holes. Therefore, the lowest Handicapper plays "yellow" ball six times. 
  • If the Yellow ball is lost no more points can be added to Team Score.

A team that completes the full 18 shooting 34pts and returns the yellow ball to changing room would trump a Team that shot 35pts but lost their ball on the 16th hole.

New regulations for Scorecard and Handicap Returns



 To summarise:

  •  Golf Ireland are making it mandatory to record your Handicap index on your Scorecard, You can verify your current WHS index pre round on the Golf Ireland app 
  • You must pre register your intent to play a round for handicap purposes (either in an organised comp or as a casual round with another WHS player who will verify your score), and then submit that score a.s.a.p. after your round is complete
  • Please read the pocket guide above for more detailed information

AUTOMATIC PENALTY SCORES PROCESS

Currently as per Rule 7.1b of the Rules of Handicapping, if a player fails to submit a score (Unsatisfied Score Intent) from an authorised format of play in a timely manner, the Handicap Committee should investigate the reason and take appropriate action.

To date there are currently thousands of unsatisfied score intents sitting on players' records and the National Handicapping Committee has decided, in order to assist clubs, to purge all Unsatisfied Score Intents up to and including 31st December 2021 from players' records. From 31st March 2022 an automated process will be put in place to apply an automatic penalty score if a score is pre-registered but not submitted.

With this new process Players will get a series of emails to remind them to submit the score, or if registered in error, edit/remove the score intent prior to the application of the penalty score. Club Handicap secretaries can override the Automatic Penalty Score if they think it is warranted.  Going forward please always remember to return your score as soon as possible and this will eliminate the need for the automatic penalty score process to be activated.
