How to Get Your Handicap

For a Member to receive a Handicap at the Royal Golf Club, they must return a minimum of three scorecards of 18 holes, or 6 rounds of 9 holes. All scorecards must be submitted together to the Golf Events Office. These must be signed by a marker(a member with an established handicap), dated and have the tee boxes used indicated e.g. black, blue or gold for gents, white or red for ladies.

Once the cards have been received each card is amended so that the maximum score on each hole is 2 over par for men and 3 over par for ladies, e.g a 10 on the 1st hole becomes a 6 for men or a 7 for ladies.

The handicap allotted will be the difference between the amended gross score and the SSS for the tee boxes used; E.g 90 strokes from the blue tees becomes a handicap of 18 (90 minus 72 equals 18). 90 strokes from the gold tees becomes a handicap of 16 (90 minus 74 equals 16).

The handicap allotted is also the exact starting handicap to be entered into the club’s handicap records and to be used for club’s events and competitions. Based on the first competition round, the club has the right to amend the handicap if required.

Wee Monty members may apply for a handicap for the championship course.

New handicap registration is free of charge and is available only for members of The Royal Golf Club, Bahrain.
