Eligibility

  • All Full Playing Members holding Handicap Indices not exceeding 40.4 are eligible to compete in the LGU. (‘Full Playing Member’ means a full, active 18-Hole member of a Club.) Players holding Local Handicaps (i.e. handicaps greater than 40.4) may compete but, subject to the above Note, must play off a Course Handicap not exceeding such as determined by a Handicap Index of 40.4. Scores returned in the LGU Medal competitions are the only ones eligible to count for the Silver and Bronze medals. Should only one player in any division compete in an LGU Medal scheduled competition round, her score must be recorded and count for LGU Medal purposes.
  • A player need not return more than four scores.
  • Subject to a Club’s ruling on playing rights for Local Handicappers, members holding Local Handicaps (i.e. Handicaps greater than 40.4) may compete but must play off a Course Handicap not exceeding such as determined by a Handicap Index of 40.4. (Note: If a Club’s ruling on playing rights for Local Handicappers does not permit them to play at the same time as the women’s competition is played, this ruling will override their eligibility to compete in the competition.)
