The England Golf web site has full information regarding the new Handicap System but a quick guide is available in the Club House.
Administration is our only use of the *personal data you give us when applying to be a member of the Golf Club:
We use it for; administration and organisation of golf activities, the maintenance of handicaps and invoicing of subscriptions. It will also be used to communicate with you, to keep you up to date with information and decisions. Your name and phone number will be used to compile a ‘contact list’ held at the back of the Club Diary which will be distributed to all members (diary to be signed for). Officers of the Club and Sections will use email addresses as a primary source of communication. At no time would we use the information given to us for any other purpose than those stated above without your permission.
