The Club uses the internationally recognised CONGU handicap system. As such we will accept a CONGU handicap certificate from a recognised club or society which is not more than 6 months old and can be verified. This would include handicaps from both Bangkok Wanderers and the British Club. Once recognised, we require one qualifying game before you can participate in events. If you do not have a CONGU handicap, your first 3 qualifying cards will be used to determine your new handicap under CONGU rules. Once awarded you can then participate in events. Such cards will then count towards annual eclectic competitions.
Lapsing and Reinstatement of a Lapsed Handicap
Any member who has not competed in a Londoner event for a continuous six month period will have his/her handicap suspended. The handicap will be reinstated when the member competes in a qualifying event. The scores from the event in which the player has his/her handicap reinstated will be taken into account for the eclectic competition. We will also accept a returning member’s handicap if they have completed a qualifying event and have a current active handicap with the Bangkok Wanderers Golf club or British Club, except for majors.
Changes to Handicap
As established international rules indicate, handicap changes are immediate following a handicap qualifying competition. It is the player’s responsibility to ensure such charges are known and declared at the next event. If you are playing within a day or two of the last competition please ask after the event for your new handicap. Otherwise, updates are available at the handicaps page of this site within a day or so. The only exception to this is where you play a competition over more than one day. The handicap change does not then take effect until the end of the competition’s final day.
