- Following an A.W.O.L. event handicaps will be recalculated on the basis
that a player will be cut as many strokes as is calculated (there being no maximum cut) i.e. one stroke lost for every two points
above 36. Where strokes are added to a player this will be restricted to a maximum of 3 strokes, so long as it means the players

opponent's shots during a hole (and your own of course)

- That score should then be confirmed
to the player and the player and marker agreeing that score

should be noted and referred to a committee member as soon
as possible on the day

dismiss this procedure as in future we may have to void
cards if not signed or correctly completed
