How do I…

We hope you find the answer to your members question here. If there’s anything else you’d like to know, however small, please don’t hesitate to drop in or call us on 01905 620747 during daylight hours.

For questions about joining Ombersley, see our Membership FAQs page.

How do I complete a scorecard?

Completed competition scorecards MUST be posted in the appropriate box in the lobby on the day of the competition. You MUST submit a card, even if you fail to complete your round.

Your card MUST carry the following information;

  • Your name
  • Date
  • Marker’s signature
  • Your correct playing handicap (Whole number)
  • Your gross scores in column ‘A’
  • The name of the competition
  • Your signature

Failure to include any of this information WILL result in disqualification. For Pairs & 4-Ball competitions, follow the same guidelines, using columns A-D. Additionally, it is also helpful to the scorers if you;

  • Include your membership number.
  • Write ONLY your gross score in column ‘A’
  • Include your Stableford points in the ‘Points’ column.
  • Correctly add up your net or Stableford score, as appropriate, and enter in the box provided.

Please take time at the end of your round to ensure your card is correctly completed and easily legible.
NB. If you enter a lower handicap, your card will be scored on the basis of the incorrect entry. If you claim too high a handicap you will be disqualified.

How do I enter a competition?

All entry sheets are posted on the relevant notice board in the clubhouse. To enter, you simply sign the sheet. Shortly before the day of the competition a random draw is made. This encourages a complete mix and increases your social circle.

Does the club have an Equality policy?

How do I get the best discounts?

Membership brings discounts of up to 15% off items in the bar, restaurant, golf shop and driving range.

How do I get a game?

Ombersley has three strong sections, the Senior’s, Men’s & Ladies, each offering social rounds for you to enjoy. On the Senior and Ladies notice board you will find social golf sheets for Mondays and Thursdays. To find a game, just look for a space and write your name down. The men’s section has a ‘Roll Up’ most weekends starting from 8.00 am – just turn up and enjoy a round.

How do I get a handicap?

Having joined Ombersley, CONGU requires that, to get a handicap, a player must submit cards for 54 holes marked by another person. The rounds must be played at Ombersley Golf Club over 9 or 18 holes. We will then adjust the returned scores so that a lady never records more than 3 over par and a man never more that 2 over par on any individual hole. The maximum handicap for men and ladies is 54. There is no minimum score required to achieve a maximum handicap.
