Obtaining a Handicap

A junior can submit three playing cards in accordance with WHS. This requires the submission of a combination of cards for 54 completed holes (cards may be submitted for either 9 or 18 holes but all cards must be completed within a 6-month period). Cards must be played off the red blocks for girls and yellow blocks for the boys.

Each card must be signed by the junior and by a person acceptable to the Junior Committee who must have an authenticated handicap. The cards will be reviewed and a handicap awarded appropriate to the score achieved.
