Suspension of a Player’s Handicap
The National Union, ‘Area Authority’ or Home Club of a player must ‘suspend’ the handicap of a player if there is belief that the player has
- failed to comply with the obligations and responsibilities of the scheme (repeatedly), or
- conducted himself in a manner that is not in the best interests of the game of golf.
Whilst a handicap is suspended, the player is not eligible to enter any competition that requires a CONGU handicap. The suspension takes affect for all clubs at which the player holds membership.
Suspensions can only be invoked if the player has been
- advised of the period of suspension (and any other conditions), and
- given an opportunity to appear before the committee.
