Matchplays and the annual handicap review

From the 2022 season commencement and coming out of the most recent Golf Ireland annual handicap audit, for which matchplay performance is part of the assessment, the club will require all club matchplay match cards to be returned at the end of each match from the quarter final stage onwards. Cards to be dropped into the competitions cards box as normal.

For Club Matchplay competitions, completed scorecards must be returned with the gross score for each hole, or a "C" where a hole is conceded without being played out.

This is consistent with the Golf Ireland requirement to include club matchplay performance in the Annual Handicap Review.
