Competitions Manual

The Handicaps and Competitions manual has been prepared by the Competitions Subcommittee (CSC), as a guide for members of Sherfield Oaks Golf Club (SOGC).

All the competitions run by the SOGC Committee are listed and described in the manual, including eligibility criteria for entry.

The manual sets out the rules and regulations covering handicaps and club competitions played at SOGC.

In the event of conflict between the manual and any one of the following official regulations, the official regulation will prevail:

  1. The World Handicap System “Rules of Handicapping” – January 2020:
    WHS Rules of Handicapping
  2. The SOGC Local Rules, as published on the clubhouse noticeboard and at:
    SOGC Local Rules
  3. The R&A Official Rules of Golf 2019:
    Rules of Golf 2019

Any questions or comments concerning the contents of this manual should be addressed to either:

The manual will be subject to amendment, from time to time. Note that version 2020-V2.2, effective 12 May 2021 contains two clarifications of the handicapping for 4BBB Matchplay KO competitions. See paragraphs 3.12 and 3.17.
