 In the interests of fairness as there will be some non-qualifying handicap events the following shall apply.

  • After winning an event you will be cut 2 FULL SHOTS, you will then get a shot back for each game you play during the Tuesday open Series and do not come 1st or 2nd until such time you reach your official GUI handicap again.
  • If you come 2nd you will be cut 1 FULL SHOT, you will then get a shot back if you play during the Tuesday open Series and do not come 1st or 2nd .

Please note that this is a domestic handicap during Tuesday Open Competitions for the 10-week series only and does not affect your handicap in any other competition game. If your Official GUI/ILGU handicap changes in between open competitions due to playing qualifying golf at other courses you MUST play off of your correct handicap. If your handicap has been reduced and you have a domestic cut you must apply this reduction to your new official Handicap. Playing off of the correct handicap is THE PLAYERS RESPONSIBILITY, playing off of an incorrect handicap may lead to disqualification.
