Handicap question

If you have an active handicap and join a new club can you choose to put three cards for a new handicap or do you have to take your active handicap with you?

Your club handicap convenor has the authority to make changes to your handicap under certain circumstances.

If you feel that your handicap no longer reflects your golfing ability significantly (either better or worse), you can apply for a handicap review.

For example, if you have an injury or illness that has affected you in some way and you can no longer maintain your previous form, your handicap convenor can make the requisite adjustment. If you move course and you feel that due to the difficulty of your new course being either significantly easier or harder, and your current handicap no longer reflects your ability, you can make a request for review.

Handicap convenors don't particularly like doing this, but the review procedure is available...

Just to qualify my previous post...

I know for a fact that this has happened at my previous 2 clubs.

At my old club, a friend of mine got a shoulder operation, and forever afterwards, he could no longer make a full swing and it affected his ability significantly. He contacted the handicap convenor and the convenor arranged for my mate to play 3 rounds with committee members to mark his cards - afterwards, he was allocated a new handicap based on his 3-cards.

If this had happened at only 1 club I had been a member of, it could possibly have been a local rule of sorts, but it has also happened at my current club, when one of the older guys who played off of 4, got a knee replacement and once again couldn't make a full turn either back or through, so he played 3 games and a committee member marked his card and he ended up with a new handicap of 12.

The last 2 rounds I have played have been +11 I know you are not supposed to play to your handicap every round But I know myself I am more than a 6 handicapper. I just wish I had joined a "Proper" course instead of the one I did join as my 1st club Thanks for the Info though D very interesting

Cheers

Thanks for the information. It's not for me, a friend asked me the question and I wasn't sure.
