Affiliation to England Golf & WHS
We are working with England Golf, Derbyshire Golf and our online booking providers to enable us to affiliate and offer official CONGU handicaps to our members.
We recently had the course measured so we could obtain our Course Measurement Certificate ahead of our Course Rating. The rating will be carried out by Derbyshire County Golf.
We hope (fingers crossed!!) to be operational by the start of the new season in April, however we are in the hands of Derbyshire County Golf, England Golf and Golf-Booking.com.
What does this mean for me?
For our 5, 7 and Affiliate members, it means you can gain an official handicap that can be used at any course throughout the world.
How much will it cost?
There are a number of costs involved – we have to pay to affiliate to Derbyshire County, plus England Golf want a percentage and we also have to pay our online booking people to provide the software (as they have to pay England Golf for a licence to provide this and hook up to their central database). We don’t have the exact cost yet, however we envisage it costing no more than £35 per player.
