This is how I understood it and what I discussed/ suggested with our handicap secretary. He was having none of it, insisting there was nothing he could do for anyone playing at Scottish courses. Doesn't seem much of a way forward unless he joins a club local in Scotland.
As I say we have several members who have home clubs in Scotland and plenty of members playing opens across the border as it is not very far away. Handicaps are updated manually on return of scores.
Your handicap secretary must be confusing golf in Scotland with North Korea
