All prospective new members are required to attend one of our events as a guest before submitting an application to join the society. Your result from the event played will go towards assessing your CGS handicap should you wish to pursue your application.
If your application is successful, you are required to then pay the annual subscription fee. You must then return a second scorecard played at an 18 hole venue of your choice with a current member of the society, who must mark and sign your scorecard and then submit that card to the CGS handicap secretary who will then complete your handicap assessment and issue you with your society handicap.
Failure to complete your handicap assessment by returning two score cards will result in being ineligible for an events 1st, 2nd or 3rd place prize and any points being allocated towards the CGS Order of Merit. However those without official CGS handicaps can still win nearest the pin or longest drive prizes being issued at the end of the days event.
Any prospective member who is already a member of a golf club must submit their club handicap to the CGS committee during their application to join the society. The CGS committee reserve the right to verify said handicap with the players home club.
All players who have club handicaps as well as society handicaps are required to play off the lowest handicap they have, failure to submit a reduction in handicap prior to a CGS event, may result in disqualification from that event.
