All rounds must be played with a marker/fellow player with a membership number (a member of a golf club affiliated to Wales Golf who is registered on the Wales Golf app or another registered Flexi Club member). This person must be selected as an attestor at the end of the round via the Wales Golf App. Your attestor must verify the score before it can appear in your scoring record.
To gain your first initial Handicap Index© Acceptable Scores must be submitted from 54 holes, made up from either 9 or 18 holes, over any affiliated course in GB&I
All rounds must be pre-registered through the app, this is done by creating a score card
General Play scores must be submitted via the app to be used for handicap purposes. We cannot accept scores from rounds played prior to the start of your subscription
Geo-location technology is in place to ensure pre-registering the intent to post a score can only be done in close proximity to the course where the round will take place (scorecard submission can however be completed elsewhere). We would recommend filling in your virtual score card, the same way you would fill in a physical card as you play
To ensure the integrity of handicaps, a marker verification process is in placePrevious members of affiliated clubs may be able to transfer their playing history and handicap index providing they have a lifelong membership number (formerly known as CDH number – since 2015) and if the record has scores on the WHS Platform since 1st January 2018.
You can do this on the Wales Golf App. All affiliated courses in GB&I should be available on the system and scores from rounds played can be submitted via the app.
(Clubs reserve the right to remove tees from play if they are not set up to the rated course length)
