Scorecards – printing and processing

  • The most important part of your playing day is the accurate processing of your scorecard.
  • On the completion of the 18th hole members must complete their scorecard and check that you and your Marker agree on your scores.
  • In particular, ensure that you have marked all of the MiClub Auto Score Boxes to highlight each individual hole stroke result.
  • Ensure that your Scorecard is signed by both your marker and yourself.
  • Scorecards must be processed and confirmed via the MiClub Scorecard Reader located in the clubrooms alongside the Scorecard Printer.
  • Confirmed Scorecards must then be placed in the “Card Box”.
  • Non compliance of Scorecard processing can lead to disqualification for that round.


  • All cards submitted for handicap must be signed by the player and the Marker.
  • The Marker should be a registered Golf Link player. If the Marker is not a member of our club, his signature should be accompanied by his Golf Link number.
  • Social round cards can be submitted for handicap. This, along with the possible use of a non Golf Link registered marker, must be pre-arranged with our handicapper or a committee member prior to teeing off. Having so arranged, it is then compulsory for the card to be submitted for handicapping.
