9 Hole Qualifying Competition
scores can be returned at all clubs at which a player is a member.
9 Hole Qualifying Competitions
- no restriction upon the number a club may stage.
Scores over 9 or 18 holes
are now permitted for the allotment and regaining of a
handicap. Scores for a total of 54 holes must be returned.
rules have been introduced to cover competitions with less than 10 players. If one player returns a score within their buffer zone or better, the CSS will be equal to the SSS. Where no player has returned a score within their buffer zone or better a secondary table is used in conjunction with the lowest score above buffer zone to determine the CSS.
process will include all players who have returned 3 or more qualifying scores during the calendar year.

Formerly ‘Active’ players, i.e. those who returned 3 qualifying scores between Annual Reviews, will be identified by a ‘c’ to identify them as ‘current / competitive’. Players who did not reach ‘c’ status at the Annual Review will re-attain their ‘c’ status when they have returned 3 qualifying scores during the current calendar year.
