If you have any requests for early / late tee times in round 3 & 4 please use the message facility in your Locker / account and we will do our best to accommodate your requests.

Handicap: When you check in before the first round you will be asked to show proof of your current Handicap Index. The relevant Golf Union app on your mobile is acceptable.
All five rounds will be run under the WHS system but scores will NOT automatically be forwarded to England Golf. You MUST return your daily scores to your golf club and the easiest way to do this is to forward the email from Golf Genius, which you will receive after each round and which provides details of your scores.
GAGT Overseas Handicap System (OHA): Where appropriate handicaps will be adjusted after each round in line with the GAGT OHA system which is based on the CONGU handicap system prior to the introduction of WHS, details of which we can provide. Any adjustments will not affect your club Handicap Index.
The GAGT OHA system will take precedence over any adjustments made by a player’s home club so that everyone is operating on the same system as some clubs are slow to update overseas scores.
Prizes: There will be prizes for the leading three scores each day.
