The Mapperley Open Competitions listed below are open to Mapperley members and visitors, subject to having a valid Handicap Index and having submitted a minimum of 3 Acceptable Scores* within the 12 months prior to the Open Competition. Scores submitted for initial handicap allocation do not count towards the 3 Acceptable Scores within the last 12 months.
* Note: ‘Acceptable Score’ is defined as a score from an authorized format of play which meets all the provisions set out within Rule 2 of the Rules of Handicapping.
 Players with a higher Handicap Index are allowed to enter, but this is not recommended by CONGU because it is against the spirit of handicapping to make them play off a less than their handicap.
 To provide equity when competitors are playing from 2 or more different sets of tees, adjustments are made to the Playing Handicaps of some players as described in Appendix N.
