And clubs will adjust and look at their rules to fit their membership
Some clubs have 100 plus amount of golfers of HC of 5 and below so they will have limits applied
Yeah, you are both right. I can see how clubs have vastly different numbers and different handicaps, of course. It just feels funny to me to cut people by handicap on a scratch comp - to my mind, anyone higher than mid-handicap it would be completely pointless them entering anyway. Surely you're not likely to have groups and groups of 20-30 handicappers plodding round on a scratch competition??Depends on your club. I've just had a scan down the men's handicap list at my club and there are currently 87 people who have an index of 7.7 and under who would be eligible to enter. An index of 7.8 is a playing handicap of 10 at my place.
