These will be updated as changes take place.

PLEASE follow all social distancing, congregation and hygiene regulations and procedures put in place by the Government, the Club and the Pro-shop. Compliance with these procedures is necessary for the club to commence competitions, to keep them running and to maintain course access.

RULE T1: SCORING AND SCORECARDS

  • MiScore app is preferred option for all players.
    • Select the player you will mark, enter your score as marker.
    • Marker (phone owner) is to sign both signatures at end of round. Verbal confirmation of scores must still occur before being submitted.
    • DO NOT PASS YOUR PHONE TO ANOTHER PLAYER TO SIGN.
    • Once scores are submitted via app, they are considered final.
    • If there is a player/s in your group without the app, please mark their score. The markers score can be retrieved and entered into MiClub as a valid score.
      • The 1 app user can score their playing partner during the round, then all other non-app users at the end of the round. Every markers score is retrievable for competition and handicapping if they haven’t been scored by another app user.
    • If you are a marker or player being scored with the app, you do not need to email a physical scorecard. Once submitted via app, your scores are recorded in system for retrieval and manual entry if neccessary.
  • Scorecards – Only when MiScore is not available in your group:
    • Use of Scorecards is highly discouraged. This option is being implemented for members who genuinely cannot be scored by the app. See above.
    • Cards will be able to be used BUT NOT TO BE RETURNED INTO SCORECARD SLOTS OR THE PRO-SHOP. Any card left at the Club will not be accepted, thrown away and a No Card Returned (NCR) will be given to the player. No Exceptions.

  • Flagsticks must be left in the hole at all times.
    • If a player removes a flagstick, a 1 shot penalty will apply to that player for each individual offense.
