Information for recently joined members and members returning to County Armagh Golf Club with regard to attaining a golf handicap and/or transferring a handicap from another club.

•  New Handicaps: Adult male members who have never before held an official handicap are required to complete 54 holes while playing from WHITE TEE MARKERS and QUALIFYING CONDITIONS. (Players must also disclose any previous playing experience.) Cards must be marked by a member of the club who already holds a current handicap, and on completion be dated and signed by both player and the marker. Cards can then be marked “for handicap” and posted into the box in the Competition Office for the attention of the Handicap Convenor. The member will then be allocated a handicap, and a handicap certificate to that effect will be posted on the Handicap Section of the Noticeboard in the Hallway.

•  Lapsed Handicaps: Players, who have not played in competitions for a period of 12 months for whatever reason, must return 3 cards in qualifying conditions i.e. White marker competitions, before their “competition handicap” is reinstated.

•  Players transferring from another club: If a player joins County Armagh Golf Club from another CONGU club, they are required to supply a current Handicap Certificate from their previous club which must be verified by an official of that club.

Further guidance on the procedures to be followed can be obtained from the Handicap Convenor .
