FAQs relating to the Linksnet season and competition.

All scores must be received with verification within 28 days of the round played.
What's the difference between my Dashboard and my Profile?
Your Dashboard is what you see when you log into Linksnet and can also be accessed via the top right navigation. This is where all your activity is logged and you can see your Calendar items and your avatar.
Your Profile is what everyone else sees following a member search. This shows your activity as well as your avatar and your background image, an image which is not shown on your Dashboard view. Your Profile also shows your personal info message and your golf club.
How do I earn Linksnet points and how do my scores get converted into Linksnet points?
Members can enter individual scores which are registered on their World Handicap record, as well as Matchplay scores against other Linksnet members. Matchplay wins earn 120 points, Matchplay draws earn 110 points whilst a loss earns 100 points.
For all individual scores submitted we use the following calculation to work out Playing Handicap:
Handicap Index x Slope/113 x 0.95
This figure is not rounded.
To then calculate the Linksnet points we use the following calculation:
10 x (Playing Handicap + Course Rating - Adjusted Gross) + 100.
This figure is then rounded to give whole number which is the Linksnet points for that score.
Anything 10 over par net will always be shown as 0 points.
The leaderboard is based on your 6 best scores only although only 3 of those 6 scores can be Matchplay scores.
Can I register as a member if I don’t have an official World Handicap?
Unfortunately not. However If you do not belong to a golf club but would like to join Linksnet you can obtain a registered World Handicap through England Golf's iGolf platform.
Click here for more details.
I don’t live in the UK, can I register as a member?
Yes absolutely. You just need to make sure you have a registered World Handicap.
Can I enter competition scores from a club outside of the UK?
As long as your score is registered on your World Handicap record, you can enter it on our platform.
Why are UK members and overseas members competing on the same leaderboard? Surely this isn’t fair?
With the introduction of the World Handicap System across the globe, golfers from every country can now compete fairly on the same leaderboard assuming they have an official World Handicap.
Should you be encouraging golfers to network and play in these current times of COVID-19?
At all times we are asking members to stay safe and abide by the current R&A, national governing body (eg. England Golf) and government guidance where social distancing rules must be observed. However, as long as this guidance is respected, there is no reason why members shouldn’t play golf and indeed participate in Linksnet to enhance their golf. We are firm believers that golf is an excellent form of safe exercise with many mental health benefits.
What type of Linksnet subscriptions are there?
The programme is free to join but there are 4 different levels of membership to suit everyone.
Choose PAR - our basic membership which is free to join and allows you to log all your scores, climb the leaderboard and compete for monthly prizes, as well as take part in our Network Days and Matchplay Tournaments.

What happens if I am a BIRDIE 2021 or EAGLE 2021 member?
As of Tuesday 4 January 2022, all 2021 membership subscriptions have been frozen and no further payments will be taken.
If you were a BIRDIE member, your existing benefits will run until the end of the month in which your last payment was made. For example if your monthly payment went out on 2nd January 2022, your existing BIRDIE benefits will run until 31st January 2022.
If you were an EAGLE member, your existing benefits will run until your renewal date. For example if you signed up as an EAGLE on 9th January 2021, your existing benefits will run until 9th January 2022. If you signed up as an EAGLE on 1st July 2021, your existing benefits will run until 1st July 2022. All existing EAGLE members will have received their EAGLE goody bag for their relevant year of membership.
BIRDIE 2021 and EAGLE 2021 members can upgrade to either PRO, TOUR or TOUR PLUS membership at any time on the website to receive the relevant benefits of those levels of membership. To do so click here.
On the renewal date, unless upgraded, all BIRDIE 2021 and EAGLE 2021 members will be converted to PAR (FREE) members although they can then choose to upgrade to PRO, TOUR or TOUR PLUS membership at any point after that.
If I am a BIRDIE 2021 or EAGLE 2021 member do I get access to the new benefits associated with PRO, TOUR or TOUR PLUS membership?
Unfortunately not. You have access to your existing benefits until your renewal date, at which point you will convert to a PAR (FREE) membership unless you upgrade.
New benefits exclusive to PRO, TOUR and TOUR PLUS are for those subscription levels only.
I am a BIRDIE 2021 or EAGLE 2021 member, why do I not get discounted rates to the 2022 Network Days?
The discounted rates for Network Days is a brand new benefit exclusive to the new subscription levels - PRO, TOUR and TOUR PLUS. BIRDIE 2021 and EAGLE 2021 members can still sign up for the Network Days 2022 but will pay the standard Network Day rate unless they upgrade their subscription.
How long does a PRO, TOUR or TOUR PLUS membership last for?
If you sign up to be a PRO, TOUR or TOUR PLUS member, your membership will last 12 months and run until your renewal date the following year. For example if you sign up on 14 January 2022, your membership and benefits will last until 14 January 2023, at which point a new 12 month subscription will begin. If you sign up on 1 June 2022, your membership and benefits will last until 1 June 2023 and so on.
What happens If I am a PRO, TOUR or TOUR PLUS member and I decide I want to return to a PAR (free) membership and therefore cancel my paid subscription?
If you cancel your paid subscription, the cancellation does not come into effect until your renewal date the following year. In other words, no refund will be provided and the benefits of your paid membership will remain until the renewal date the following year.
If I cancel my PRO, TOUR or TOUR PLUS membership will that stop my paid subscription automatically renewing on the renewal ?
Yes, if you cancel your PRO, TOUR or TOUR PLUS subscription at any time before your renewal date, although the benefits of that paid membership remain until your renewal date, the subscription will not automatically renew on the renewal date and you will be returned to PAR (free) membership.
If I start a PRO, TOUR or TOUR PLUS subscription now will it automatically renew?
Yes, taking out a paid subscription will mean it will automatically renew on your renewal date, and a further annual payment will be taken on that date, unless you cancel your membership.
Any price change to your subscription would be communicated to you at least 28 days in advance of any proposed price increase coming into effect, at which point you would of course be free to cancel your membership if you so wish.
What happens to my subscription if my debit/credit card changes or expires?
If your card changes or expires, your payment will not be able to be taken and your subscription will be automatically cancelled until you submit your new card details.
I was a PAR member at certain points of the season, but decided to upgrade to PRO, TOUR or TOUR PLUS membership. Will all my scores count towards qualification for the Final or end of season leaderboard prizes?
Yes, as long you sign up as a PRO, TOUR or TOUR PLUS member before the end of the season, all your scores will count towards your Final qualification or end of season leaderboard prizes.
If I am a PRO, TOUR or TOUR PLUS member and cancel before the end of the season will I miss out on any Final qualification or end of season prizes?
No, cancelling your paid membership will not affect your participation in anything, as your paid subscription and all its benefits run until your renewal date the following year.
If I am a PRO, TOUR or TOUR PLUS member in 2022 but decide to change my membership in 2023, will I still get access to the discounted Network Days and Matchplay Tournaments and can I still qualify through the leaderboard for the Final?
No, you will only get access to the relevant membership benefit if that particular membership is live for the duration that the benefit takes place.
For example, if you sign up as a TOUR member on 1 June 2022 but decide to be a PAR member for 2023, you will be able to book and take part in Network Days at the TOUR member rate until 1 June 2023. However if you have booked a Network Day at a TOUR member rate for a day after 1 June 2023 and become a PAR member on 1 June 2023, you will be required to pay the additional amount that a PAR member would pay for the day. This also applies if you move from TOUR to PRO membership.
Likewise if you enter the matchplay tournaments at a reduced rate prior to your membership downgrading, if you then downgrade on the renewal date, you will be required to pay the additional amount that a PAR or PRO member would pay for the tournament. Failure to do so will result in a walk over for the opponent in the next round following the renewal date.
If you downgrade from PRO or TOUR/TOUR PLUS to PAR, and your renewal is prior to the close of the season, you will not be able to have qualified from the Leaderboard unless you upgrade again before the season closes. You have to be a PRO, TOUR or TOUR PLUS member at the time of the season closing for your scores from the Leaderboard to count.
Surely if this is the case, it also works the other way! If I upgrade from PAR or PRO having already paid for your Network Day places or Matchplay Tournaments, I should be refunded any additional amounts I paid when I was at the lower level of membership?
Unfortunately not. No refunds will be given should a member subsequently upgrade their membership in the same season having already purchased Network Day spaces or spaces in our Matchplay tournaments at higher rates.
You can however qualify for the Final from the Leaderboard as long as you become a PRO, TOUR or TOUR PLUS member prior to the close of the season.
If I sign up as a PRO, TOUR or TOUR PLUS member in 2022 and the new membership packs for 2023 are announced prior to my renewal date, am I entitled to both the 2022 and 2023 packs?
No. Only one membership pack is provided per annual subscription. You would qualify for a new membership pack once your new annual subscription for 2023 begins.
Can I win prizes if I am a PAR member?
Yes you can. PAR members can win any of our monthly competitions, and can take part in our Network Days and Matchplay tournaments for a one off payment. PAR members can qualify for the Final through the Network Day Order of Merit and through the Matchplay Tournaments without upgrading their subscription.
What are the main benefits of upgrading to PRO membership?
The main benefits are the ability to qualify for the Final direct from the leaderboard, as well as discounted rates for all Network Days and our Matchplay Tournaments. In addition you receive a member's' pack containing 2 dozen Titleist TruFeel balls and a Linksnet towel.
What are the main benefits of upgrading to TOUR membership?
The main benefits are even more discount on Network Days and FREE entry to our Matchplay Tournaments. The Member's pack contains a dozen Titleist Pro V1 or Pro V1X balls and a premium brand Linksnet polo shirt.
What are the main benefits of upgrading to TOUR PLUS membership?
A superb Member's pack containing two dozen Pro V1 or Pro V1X balls, a premium brand Linksnet polo shirt, a premium brand Linksnet 1/4 zip top, a Titleist Performance Ball Marker cap and a personalised bamboo bag tag.
If I upgrade from PRO to TOUR or TOUR PLUS, or from TOUR to TOUR PLUS during the season, what do I pay?
If you upgrade your paid subscription during the season and you have NOT yet been sent your membership pack you will only need to pay the difference between your existing subscription and the new subscription you are moving to. For example, if you move from PRO to TOUR you will pay £120 and if you move from PRO to TOUR PLUS you will pay £220. If you move from TOUR to TOUR PLUS you will pay £100.
Please note you will need to pay the full amount of the subscription to upgrade online and then claim the relevant refund back by emailing email@example.com
If you upgrade your paid subscription during the season and you have already received your membership pack for your existing subscription, no refund will be due and you will need to pay the full amount of the new subscription.
Is there anything on my Dashboard that identifies me as a PRO, TOUR or TOUR PLUS member?
Yes, a small silver trophy next to your name indicates a PRO member; a small gold trophy indicates you are a TOUR member and a small black trophy indicates you are a TOUR PLUS member. Should you cancel your membership, the icon will remain in place until your current subscription is due for repayment.
Are there any sub categories within the leaderboard?
Members will be able to sort the leaderboard by gender, age and starting handicap range (0-9, 10-19 and 20+*). End of season prizes and Final qualification will be awarded based on handicap range.
*Note your handicap index is rounded down to place you in your handicap range. For instance if your starting handicap is 9.7 you will be placed in the 0-9 range and not the 10-19 range.
As a Linksnet member, how do I know what course handicap to use?
Your World Handicap is updated daily, and there are numerous tools for working out your course handicap on any given day, from checking the tables displayed at your club to utilising calculators such as the R&A course handicap calculator here
As a Linksnet member, do I enter the gross score or the adjusted gross score?
When entering a stroke play or medal score, members should submit the score which is shown on their World Handicap record which will be the adjusted gross score from the round rather than the actual gross score which could be different.
As a Linksnet member, how do I enter a score from a Stableford competition?
Once the score appears on your World Handicap record, it will be shown as an adjusted gross. You should use this adjusted gross when submitting your score to Linksnet.
Why as a Linksnet member should I wait 24 hours to submit my score to the Linksnet platform?
Sometimes a score can be inputted incorrectly and waiting 24 hours allows us to ensure that your Linksnet record and your World Handicap record match.
Any adjustments made are available at midnight as well as confirmation of the subsequent new Handicap Index. Therefore please wait until this has been done before submitting your score to Linksnet.
My friends would like to become Linksnet members, what should I tell them?
Simply tell them to go to the sign up page where they can add their referrer’s name and email address. Referring friends can help you earn big rewards.
How does the new Referral and Rewards Scheme work?
You can earn a fantastic range of rewards which increase in value the more members you refer - there are seperate rewards for the number of PRO and TOUR/TOUR PLUS referrals.
Click here to see the full range of rewards on offer.
What happens if I told a friend about Linksnet yet they failed to mention my name on the registration form?
Unfortunately in these circumstances there is nothing we can do retrospectively. Therefore it is imperative you remind any friends you recommend Linksnet to to reference your name in the Referrers Name and Email address box.
Click here to see the example.
Can I earn these rewards if I am a PAR member myself?
No unfortunately not. You have to be a PRO, TOUR or TOUR PLUS member to qualify for any referrals and you must have one of these subscriptions before any referral counts to your total.
If I am a PRO member do I qualify for the same rewards as a TOUR or TOUR PLUS member?
Essentially yes. You will earn the PRO referral awards for the number of referrals who become PRO members and the TOUR or TOUR PLUS referral awards for the number of referrals who become TOUR or TOUR PLUS members. This is irrespective of whether you are a PRO, TOUR or TOUR PLUS member yourself.
What about my subscription refund, do I get my subscription refunded if I upgrade subscriptions mid season?
Please note that at the point of the first reward of your subscription refund (4+ members referred), the refunded amount will be the level of subscription you were prior to you gaining either your 4th PRO referral or 4th TOUR/TOUR PLUS referral.
How long do I have to enter my score?
All scores must be submitted and verified within 28 days of the round being played. The final responsibility for verification within 28 days of the round will lie with the member.
I’m a Linksnet member, why are you asking me to provide verification for my club scores?
We ask Linksnet members when entering a score to submit a screen shot from their national association's World Handicap System (WHS) Members Platform. For example in England, you would submit a screen shot of the score detail from England Golf's WHS Members Platform.
The final responsibility for verification within 28 days of the round will lie with the Linksnet member.
For more information click here
I’ve entered a Match Play score, what do I need to send through to get the score verified?
If you have submitted a Matchplay score, you will need to upload a copy of your scorecard with the match score clearly marked together with both players’ signatures.
Your opponent will also receive a notification to verify that the score is indeed correct.
Do both players need to submit the Match Play score?
No, only ONE player needs to submit a Matchplay score. The opponent will receive a notification to verify, and once verified, the score will be added to both profiles.
Why does my score have to be entered and verified within 28 days of my round?
By setting the submission date at 28 days max, it allows us to keep the leaderboards as up to date and as accurate as possible, and avoids Linksnet members stockpiling scores until the end of the Season.
I have entered a new score, but my points total has not changed. Why?
If the score you have entered is not one of your top six best scores, it will not count towards your points total. Likewise, if your score is your fourth or more match play submitted and not better than your best 3 Matchplay scores, it will not count. Your top six best scores can only include a maximum 3 Matchplay scores.
I have entered four scores but have been told I do not qualify for any end of season prizes?
All Linksnet members must enter a minimum six valid scores to be eligible for end of season prizes.
If I enter 6 Match Plays can I qualify for any end of season prizes?
Unfortunately not. Only a maximum 3 Matchplay scores can count to your overall Linksnet points total. Therefore, if you’ve entered 6 Matchplays and no other types of round, your Linksnet points total will only consist of your 3 best Matchplay rounds, and you will have been deemed not to have entered the necessary 6 qualifying scores required for any end of season prizes.
I'm a Linksnet member and have entered a club score but I have been told it is not valid, why is this?
If you enter a score which is not showing on your World Handicap record, it will not be accepted. All scores must be from individual rounds which show as an adjusted gross on your handicap record.
I want to submit a Match Play but I can't choose an opponent?
You can only submit Matchplays against other Linksnet members who you follow. Once you follow that member, their name will appear in the drop down menu when selecting an opponent on the Matchplay score submission form.
Why can I not enter Club Match Play competition scores?
Unfortunately we only allow Matchplay scores against other Linksnet members to be entered into our leaderboards. This is to encourage networking on the platform and Linksnet members to meet and play golf together, therefore making Linksnet a true golfing network.
You can however enter Matchplay results from our own Matchplay Tournaments. If it's a result from our Pairs Tournament, you must choose one of your opposing pair to enter the score against. You cannot enter the score twice - i.e. against both of the opposing pair.
How often can I play the same Linksnet member and submit the Match Play result?
You can play the same Linksnet member a maximum of three times in the season.
Can I enter Match Plays against multiple opponents in my fourball?
No, you are not able to enter multiple Match Plays from the same round. In other words, you can only submit one match play score per round played, although that one match play can be played within a fourball.
Can I play two Linksnet Match Plays on the same day?
You can only submit one Match Play result on any one date. Multiple Match Plays on the same day are not allowed. Therefore you cannot play a 9 hole Match Play on the front nine and then a separate 9 hole Match Play against another Linksnet member on the back nine. You would only be able to submit one of them.
Can I enter a Match Play and then also enter another score from the same round?
No only one score submission can be made per round. Therefore you cannot submit a score as a Match Play and then also submit it in another submission category. You will need to choose what category to submit that round in.
Do corporate, society day or Network Day scores count for Linksnet points?
If you are a Linksnet member, as long as you’ve registered the round for your World Handicap, and that round can be verified on your World Handicap record, then the score will count for Linksnet points.
Can I enter a score from a 9 hole round?
We no longer accept 9 hole rounds on our Linksnet platform other than 9 hole matchplays.
All strokeplay scores posted must be from 18 hole rounds.
Can I enter a score from an 18 hole par 3 course or any other course with a low par?
Rounds played on Par 3 courses whether 9 or 18 holes are not accepted, although again they can be submitted as a Matchplay score. The minimum 18 hole par allowed for a score submissions is 65. Therefore, any round played on a course with an 18 hole par of 64 or less will not be accepted.
Why should I keep entering scores even if I can't better my best six scores?
If scores are tied at the end of the Season, your league position will be based on the number of valid scores you have entered.
What happens if I am tied with another Linksnet member at the end of the Season on both points scored and number of valid scored entered?
If you are tied at the end of the Season on points scored and number of valid scores entered, your league position will be determined by the first valid score submitted. For example if Player A scored a 6 point round and Player B scored a 4 point round, Player A would be placed above Player B in the league table.
In order to qualify for end of season prizes including a place in the Final through the leaderboard, you will need to be a a PRO, TOUR or TOUR PLUS member.
Are Network Days available to all members?
Yes, any level of member including PAR members can sign up to our Network Days.
What do the costs of the Linksnet Network Day cover?
Unless otherwise stated, the package cost covers 18 holes of golf, a bacon roll or breakfast, tea, coffee and a 1 course lunch. You will also receive a sleeve of Titleist balls on the day and have access to all the prizes, including the Order of Merit which runs throughout the season leading to qualification for the Final.
Can I invite my partner or friend to caddy for me and have breakfast and lunch?
Subject to any catering restrictions, yes you can. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org detailing who you would like to attend and we will send you a link to pay for the catering costs.
You will need to provide us with at least 48 hours notice and all payments will need to be made prior to the day.
Can I submit my scores from any Linksnet Network Day into my Linksnet profile?
If you are a Linksnet member, as long as you’ve given us your CDH number beforehand, then the score will count for Linksnet points, but you will still need to submit the score to the platform yourself.
What handicap should I use for Linksnet Network Days?
If you are a Linksnet member, your current handicap index will provide you with a course handicap on the day.
Does anyone qualify from the Network Days for the Final?
THREE Linksnet members will qualify directly from the series of Network Days for our end of season Final. This will be through our new Network Days Order of Merit.

From time to time we may run exclusive social media competitions although these competitions are also displayed on members’ Dashboard Feeds.
Why do you only post prizes to a UK address?
The cost of posting items overseas has become prohibitively expensive (especially for bulky items), meaning that we now have to stipulate that prizes must be dispatched to a UK postal address.
What if I am an overseas winner without a UK postal address?
If you are an overseas winner, we can either post your prize to a UK postal address of your choice or we can quote you a cost for posting your prize to you direct. Prizes will only be despatched overseas once full payment has been received.
Why has my prize been delayed?
Due to the ongoing pandemic there are likely to be potential delays on prize delivery. We will endeavour to update prize winners on any such delays.
