Returning and Completing Score Cards It is each player’s responsibility to return his or her score card IMMEDIATELY after finishing a round. As well as being courteous, this means that the conveners know that all players have returned safely from the course and that the competition can be closed promptly. Competition conveners will not go in search of your cards. Failure to return your card will mean an automatic 0.1 back on your handicap and may affect future competition entry. Please attempt to complete score cards CLEARLY so that we can check scores and not have to guess!
