Will Golf Australia  clubs be accepting hcps, established under WHS, from other countries?

 

Example:  A player establishes a WHS from US based on rounds played with his "group of buddies".  Non are in competition rounds.

Yes. All jurisdictions will be obliged to accept legitimate (ie gained under WHS rules) handicaps from anywhere. 

Which is really the point of a World handicapping system

It just means that the 'pool of bandits' will be much larger than just Australia wide.

Prize allocation is easily handled by Terms of Competition.
Separate visitor competition sections are common.
That said local as well as Overseas visitors would be in the same section normally.
I am not worrying about this. I doubt others at my Club are concerned at the prospect.
In fact the mere presence of overseas players is very pleasing for our members and management.

Hmm:  https://www.golf.org... 23-4-2019).pdf

 

It says there will be no change in "pre nominated scores".  Doesn't that mean it is up to individual clubs to accept?

GA’s existing pre-nominated social scores regulation will continue without amendment.

simply confirms it is an Authorised Format of Play as specified in the WHS Rules.

 

2.1a Authorised formats of play are:

Individual stroke play - general play

Individual stroke play - general play

 

To paraphrase Rules 2.1a(i) & (ii) -

All legitimate scores from an authorised form of play must be submitted regardless of where the jurisdiction area in which the players is playing or where his home club is located.

 

2.1a(iii) says the player must pre-register the round for a general play round to be acceptable.

 

A club has no say in the matter.

Thanks.  Now how to "pre-register" ?  Phone not working means out of luck?

You can do it at the course, on an app or PC

This says the club does, and last year my Australia club did not allow social rounds.  It appears I will continue to have two handicaps.

Very interesting. It is the only authority I have yet seen that includes that option for the club.

On a different note, it seems GA have not yet published their version of the full rules yet with less than a couple of months to go.
