Amateur Status – Reinstatement from Professional Game

  • Firstly, an application for reinstatement must be made by the player to the R&A and a reinstatement date will be confirmed.
  • During the period up to the reinstatement date, a club can allocate the player a ‘Club Handicap’ which will allow the player to play in club competitions.
  • The player’s score must not be included in the CSS Calculation while a Club Handicap is held.
  • When the time comes for full reinstatement, all scores recorded during the waiting period will be used to determine the players’ official CONGU handicap reinstatement.
