Before all of the above, you must pre-register your intention to play for your handicap if you are so doing. This will, for most members, simply involve them signing into the competition as normal. Then return your card to M&H for processing.
If using an App to sign into a Competition, you can only use the “How Did I Do” App. This enables you to enter the competition, select if you wish to enter the sweep and then input your score after you have played. Please make sure you have enough in your shop account to pay for any charges. At this moment in time, you cannot enter a Competition using the Scottish Golf App.
To pre-register for a General Play round you can use either the “How Did I Do” App or the “Scottish Golf” App. Again this allows you to enter your score after the round and to allow the score to be used as a qualifying score.
If you wish to play for your handicap in General Play, and you do not have the “Scottish Golf” or “How Did I Do” Apps you must sign in at the Club Shop and return your card in plenty of time for it to be to be processed that same day.
Any scores not returned on the same day, whether by card or app, will affect your Handicap Index for the following day.
What do you need to do on competition day?
First you need to sign into the competition.
If not using HDID App, sign in as normal in the shop, take your card, play your round and deposit card in the card box until such times as we can get back into the Clubhouse and use the screen to enter score.
If you are using HDID App ensure you have enough money in your account to cover any charges (i.e. entry, sweep & twos). Enter your score in the HDID App as you go round. (You will be asked to enter who your marker is). And upload your score at the end of the round. Please ensure your score is uploaded as soon as possible after you have completed your round. Any scores through this method, not returned before 23.59 on the day of the competition will be deemed to be a no return for competition purposes.
