Commonly asked questions:
Q: Can a player win multiple vouchers for any given week?
A: Yes. A player enters their name into the book and pays for each round (envelope with number and amount). This entitles the player to all available vouchers offered for that week’s competition.
Q: What happens to my handicap if I play three times in a week?
A: Your handicap remains the same for EACH game during the week. After Thursday, handicaps will be adjusted accordingly.
Halved for a win
Quartered for a run-down
Q: What happens to my handicap if I win and also get a run-down?
A: Your handicap is initially halved, then a maximum of 1 x quartered for any number of run-downs.
See example below for M. Jarroush. Sporter’s Handicap (12)
Card 1: Monday 32 Net: Run-Down
Card 2: Tuesday 28 Net: Winner
Card 3: Thursday (am) 36 Net: Nothing (just a $4 fine towards the 3 Put Club)
Card 4: Thursday(pm) 29 Net: Run-down
After the win: New handicap = 6 ($20 Voucher: goes to 3 Put)
After 1st run-down: New handicap = 4½ (plus another $5 voucher: also to 3 Put)
After 2nd run-down: New handicap for following week = 3½ ( $5 voucher)
Q: Can I use my normal Golf Link Handicap?
A: No. A Sporter’s handicap will require 3 games to determine an average handicap for Sporter Competitions. During this interim period, players are still eligible to win the Lucky Card and Boozer’s Ball vouchers.
Q: What’s the maximum number of games I can play?
A: Write your name down, pay your fees, have a card signed by you and your marker, put the card and fees in to the box, and play as often as you want.
Q: What happens if I play before the clubhouse opens?
A: Grab an envelope from the “Honesty Box” (outside the clubhouse), write your name down, pay your fees, keep a copy of the receipt, and place the envelope in the honesty box. Your name and number will be recorded into the Sporter’s book. Once you have finished, have a card signed by you and your marker, put the card into the honesty box.
