Ladies, and mixed pairs can definitely participate, as we are an inclusive tour that welcomes all participants. For safety purposes juniors must be 14+ and have an official handicap and be accompanied by an adult. Regarding courtesy shots, we make all necessary adjustments based on the SSS of the course being played. So if a red tee has a higher SSS than a white tee, those playing from red tees would have handicaps adjusted accordingly.
We have food and drinks at a select few events. If this event is one of them it will be written in the ‘value’ section at the top page.
Yes you can - we welcome single golfer and we will pair you up. We had runners up in 2020 single golfers at an event who had never met! Just join up and you never know if you can't persuade a partner. In our 2021 events we had two singles paired up on the day win one of our events.

Launched by England Golf in July 2021, iGolf provides non-club members with access to obtain an official WHS Handicap Index. For just £40 a year, it also gives you the ability to track your performances, measure your progress and message your friends and likeminded golfers, all through the MyEG app. Because it also provides an equitable way of playing the game for those who aren’t club members, it means all iGolf subscribers can enter Golf Pairs events and compete too. To find out more about iGolf, click here.
We require for 2022 all prize winners to have played 6 formal competition rounds in the 12 months prior to the event day. A formal competition (used to be known as Handicap Qualifiers) is managed and administered by an "Authorized Association" (either a golf club or other organization which is licensed by one of the golf unions to run formal competitions). These scores are submitted to the central WHS database by the AA in question, rather than by the individual.
A General Play round (formerly supplementary score) counts when calculating handicap index, but are not competition rounds, since they are not administered by an Authorized Association.
The full details can be found in the CONGU handbook below.
Although we are recognised as an Authorized Association by the golf unions of England, Wales and Scotland - and we are using Golf Genius which is a licensed system of all three - we cannot submit better ball scores to the database at the present time - so our events do NOT count as formal competitions.
As soon as the unions work out how to deal with better ball scores, we will be submitting them to the database.
