Covid-19: England Golf Statement
Following on from the Prime Minister’s statement on 23 March, golf clubs and golf courses in England must now close.
It is England Golf’s position that this deeply regrettable, but highly necessary and responsible course of action must be implemented with immediate effect and be maintained until further notice.
The government has identified an urgent need to introduce new restrictions on public life and on non-essential businesses opening their doors. This has been done to limit the spread of the coronavirus and relieve the growing pressure on our National Health Service.
Keeping golf courses open is simply no longer compatible with the updated policy of government which is designed to save lives in a time of national emergency.
The health and wellbeing of the nation is the only consideration that matters at this moment in our history. These are incredibly testing times for the country. The golf industry cannot be shielded from the economic and social ramifications caused by this temporary shutdown of normal life.
We would like to assure the golfing community that England Golf staff will continue to work remotely with all affiliated golfers, clubs and counties to try and minimise the damage caused by this suspension of regular golf club life.
Submitting Qualifying Scores prior to the introduction of the WHS
World Handicap System (WHS)
The way that handicaps for golfers around the world are calculated has been transformed by a new system developed by the R&A and the USGA. A number of countries round the world started using the new system on 1st January 2020 and it will come into force in Great Britain and Ireland on 2nd November 2020.
Information about how the World Handicap System will affect members at Mapperley Golf Club can be found at World Handicap System: Overview
Submitting Qualifying Scores
Players are encouraged to submit plenty of Qualifying Scores prior to the introduction of the WHS in November. This is to ensure that your WHS 'Transition Handicap' is good reflection of your current playing ability. As well as playing in Qualifying competitions you may submit Supplementary Scores over 9 holes or 18 holes.
