PLEASE GIVE GENEROUSLY


New Members
The course is now in acceptable scoring conditions

For members who have never had a WHS handicap, you must submit a required number of nine and/or eighteen cards played over a measured course. Any permutation of nine and eighteen cards may be submitted but must total a minimum of 54 holes. At Greenacres the Men’s measured courses are the full eighteen holes, the front nine and back nine played of the Blue or White tee markers.

As tee markers are rated by gender and not age. Junior Boys can NOT submit cards from the RED tee markers as they have not been rated for male golfers.

For the score cards to be accepted for handicapping.

  • You must preregister your intent to submit a score card, by completing the preregistration sheet in the member’s room.
  • Please indicate which tees were used and the date the round was played.
  • The cards must be signed by a marker who already has an official WHS Handicap.

Cards will be accepted from other courses, provided the round was pre-registered before commencement of play.

Once the required number of cards have been completed, please place them into the Match & Handicap Slot of the cabinet in the members room and brief note of any playing experience. Examples:

  • Was a member of X Golf Club Y years ago and played of Z handicap
  • I’m member of a society and play X times a year; society handicap is
  • I’m just starting to play golf

Until the cards and accompanying information have been submitted and a handicap has been allocated new members can play with another member in any club competition from the competition tees. When your membership payment has been processed the Match & Handicap Committee will enter the score cards into Clubhouse and your initial handicap index will be automatically calculated.
