9 Hole Golf – New Handicap Valid Competition Format for 2017

NEW this year to Skelmorlie Golf Club, Scottish Golf Union (SGU) approved 9 Hole Medals’ with something to offer golfers of all standards in a shorter timescale.

Two 9 hole courses have been rated by the SGU and are ideal for obtaining and maintaining an SGU handicap. This handicap can be used in Skelmorlie’s 18-hole stroke play competitions and those at other courses. This is a facility not offered at many other local clubs and the intention is to play these competitions on a Sunday and in mid-week.

The format is a Stableford Points system. One course will be over 9 holes from the yellow tees. This is set up over 9 of the flattest holes on the course and ideal for beginners, those who wish some gentle exercise in the open air with a purpose and those wishing to build up some confidence before moving up a level.

The second 9 holes are set up over the white medal tees and are slightly more challenging. Ideal for those who have played before and would like to come back to golf and those of you who are short on time due to other commitments, but wish to play competition golf and maintain or get a SGU handicap.

This is golf offered in a new less time consuming format, yet keeping alive the cut and thrust of medal play in a handicap competition. Come join us at Skelmorlie Golf Club in this new and exciting approach to handicap golf.
