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that you play in the competitions and do not win a prize, penalties will reduced by 1 point until all penalties are rescinded.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 3rd 2019 the following score adjustments are in force.
