Local rule requiring for the return of a scorecard for
Singles and Fourball Matchplay quarter finals, semi finals and finals

As part of the Annual Handicap
Review process, Golf Ireland requires that performance of members in matchplay
events should be considered. Arising from this requirement the Committee have
agreed to introduce a rule requiring the return of a scorecard for both singles
and fourball club matchplay matches at the quarter final, semi-final and final

Golf Ireland's overall aim is to

give the ClubHandicap Committee additional member scoring information to
consider alongside performance in qualifying singles competitions, other
competitions (e.g. fourball), and Golf Ireland App qualifying rounds. This
should help us to reach more informed decisions in the Annual Handicap Review.

The score card

The score card should be be
returned in the normal manner and completed as follows:

1)    Competition
– write matchplay (singles or fourball) and the round – quarter final, semi
final etc.

2)    Include names
of all members playing in the match, their handicap index and their playing

3)    Date of the

4)    Signature
from at least one person on either team i.e. for fourball a single signature
from each team will suffice.

5)    Signature
of the marker.

6)    A recorded
score for each hole played


Recording of scores

·  Putts can be conceded by your opponent.  For the purpose of
recording the score it should be assumed the conceded putt was

·  The marker should record the winning score of each hole
under the player who won the hole, for Fourball it should be under the
player who won the hole. Where the opposing team concedes a hole, not
a putt, only a “C” is required (either player)

·  For halved holes the score should be recorded for both players who
achieved the half.

·  It is not necessary to include a losing score for each hole.


Returning the Scorecard

The score card should be completed and returned to the

Competitions box beside the Pro-shop. If the clubhouse is closed at the
conclusion of a match, we would ask that a photograph of the completed
scorecard be forwarded to


1. The preliminary and first round draws were open draw. Subsequent round draws are based on the brackets arising from the first round.

2. The completion dates for each round are set at the outset of the competition and are on the drawsheet. No extensions to these dates.

3. The onus is on both players / sets of players to engage early to set the date for the match. If one player / pairing cannot make the agreed date, and another date cannot be agreed, then the player / pairing originally unable to play must concede the match.

4. Issues which cannot be resolved should be notified to the Matchplays mailbox ( as early as possible for discussion / resolution. Any issues left till close to or on the round completion date run the risk of both players / pairings being removed from the competition. Where both players/teams have been in contact with the matchplays mailbox, with no resolution, a coin toss may be used to determine the winner.

5. Results to be emailed to the matchplays mailbox once the match is completed and no later than the completion date of the specified round. Late notifications will not be accepted.

6. The Competitions Committee decision is final.

7. Mailbox for submission of results is

Matchplays and the annual handicap review

From the 2022 season commencement and coming out of the most recent Golf Ireland annual handicap audit, for which matchplay performance is part of the assessment, the club will require all club matchplay match cards to be returned at the end of each match from the quarter final stage onwards. Cards to be dropped into the competitions cards box as normal.

For Club Matchplay competitions, completed scorecards must be returned with the gross score for each hole, or a "C" where a hole is conceded without being played out.

This is consistent with the Golf Ireland requirement to include club matchplay performance in the Annual Handicap Review.
