Golf Ireland Handicapping changes from 31st March 2022

As has been previously communicated to all members of Golf Ireland via email, here is a short summary of the golfers responsibilities in relation to the non-return of scores and the inclusion of your verified handicap index on your scorecard.

Non-Return of completed scorecards.

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. This rule applies to both General Play and official Competitions.

The player is now totally responsible for submitting their score once it has been pre-registered.
If they fail to do so without providing the committee with a valid reason, an automated penalty score will be applied.

Mandatory Handicap on Scorecards.

From 31st March 2022, Golf Ireland requires that the player’s Handicap Index is verified before playing and is the required handicap on a scorecard.

Ukrainian Fundraiser

At the recent drive-in we ran a raffle to support the GOAL Ukrainian Emergency appeal.

In total we raised €1270 on the day. Padraig Harrington has generously matched all the money raised with a contribution of his own. See the attached tweets from Padraig and the reply from Captain Terry acknowleging the Bearna contribution to this worthy cause.

Men’s 14 Hole Competitions – points deduction system

For the duration of the winter 14 hole competitions a points deduction system for prize winners will operate. These deductions are not permanent and your full handicap will be restored as you continue to play in the weekly events. The winner of a weekly competition will be deducted 2 points from his next 14 hole competition score and all other winners (eg second or third, fourth etc.) 1 point. As an incentive to prize winners, for each subsequent week that you play in the competitions and do not win a prize, penalties will reduced by 1 point until all penalties are rescinded. These are not official handicap deductions and only apply to the 14 hole winter competitions in Bearna Golf Club.

Starting on November 12th 2021 the following score adjustments are in force.
