Extra Day Cards
Extra day cards are a useful way to play for handicap and are particularly helpful for members who don’t have the time or don’t wish to enter weekend medal competitions. Simply advise the Starter before you go out for what would otherwise be a bounce game that you want to take out an extra day card.
Extra day cards i.e. Supplementary Scores are governed by CONGU Rule 21. Members with handicaps of 2.4 and less can only return Supplementary Scores between 1st September and 31st December at their Home Club but only to the extent necessary to have submitted 3 qualifying scores in the handicap year. Members with Handicaps of 2.5 to 5.4 can return up to 10 Supplementary Scores a year only at their Home Club. Those with Handicaps of 5.5 and above can return Supplementary Scores at any affiliated Clubs where they are a member, up to an overall total of 10 a year. Supplementary Scores are limited to one a week and the week runs from Monday to Sunday.
Members with handicaps 5.5 and above whose Home Club is the Glen should use the “Away Score” report form in the Members’ Secure Area of the website to report all Supplementary Scores at affiliated clubs where they are a member, so that we can keep their handicap records up to date. When doing so, please enter “Supplementary Score” in the “Event” box. If the Glen is not your Home Club, the Extra day Cards book in the Shop still must be signed and the card returned to the Starter. The Starter will then advise the relevant Home Club about your score via the CDH system, to enable your handicap record to be updated, but it is recommended that you should also advise your Home Club, as appropriate.
So, even if you don’t regularly play in medal competitions, remember that you can keep your handicap (or re-instate it) by making use of this arrangement.
The main thing you need to remember is to hand your extra day card back in as soon as possible after your round, even if it’s a nil return or a disappointing score. If you forget your handicap will definitely go up by 0.1, even if you’ve played out of your skin.
Speak to the Starter if in any doubt about these arrangements.
