Part 5/Decisions

Incomplete cards and No returns  


  • All cards must be returned, whether completed or not.

  • It is expected that every player who enters an 18 hole qualifying competition intends to complete the round.

  • Since an incomplete card and a no return may have the effect of increasing a players handicap, the club would be justified in refuding to accept a card or record a no return when the player has walked in after playing only a few holes.

  • Cards must not be issued to players when there is obviously insufficient light for the to complete the round.

  • Sympathetic consideration should be given to players who have had to discontinue play for any cuase.

  • Clauses 17 and 19 f this system give clubs the discretion to deal with players who persistenly sumit incompolete cards or make no returns if they consider thay are attempting to build a handicap.
