Newbies Guide updated May 7th

 Rules for beginners - Golf Ireland

Step 1: Install the howdidido app, When you submit 3 cards a Handicap index will be allocated.

After Handicap index allocation you will then have access to the tee time booking system for Competitions and casual golf at the course.



Step 2: Install the Golf Ireland app, use this to track your Handicap index.

The pin number for registering is on the back of your Golf Ireland member card.


Step 3: (optional)  You may want to download a GPS Golf app.

To comply with the rules of Competition golf the GPS app can only give advice on Distance, not measure wind speed or direction etc. Try not to let such devices interfere with pace of play.

Example of a free App with the Course mapped on it is below

Course Handicap Table explained *May 5th update*

  • At the moment we are not accepting supplementary cards played outside of our Weds/Sat/Sun "Handicap Card Return" events.

Your current Handicap index is based on your best 8 scores from your last 20 qualifying rounds. When playing at home you are allocated a course Handicap based on this > Course Handicap Table.

  • If playing a Stableford/Strokeplay Competition you will receive 95% of your allotted Course Handicap

When playing at an away Course your Handicap will change as per their Course Handicap Table. If it's a casual round it will be the full allotted course Handicap and if it's in a Stableford/Strokeplay Competition you will receive 95%

I know this is all very confusing for us all, but it will bed in over time.
