Should I become a CLUB or CASUAL member?

You only have to choose when it's time to enter your first score. Then you will be prompted to choose CLUB or CASUAL.

Choose CLUB if you have an official World Handicap. If you are not a member of a club or don’t have a World Handicap choose CASUAL. 

CLUB Linksnet members can submit any score that is registered for their World Handicap, as well as Matchplay rounds against other Linksnet members.

CASUAL Linksnet members can enter all casual rounds as well as Matchplay rounds against other Linksnet members.

Can I register as a CASUAL member if I have a World Handicap?

If you are a golf club member with an official World Handicap you must register as a CLUB Linksnet member.  

07

Can I register as a CLUB member if I don’t have an official World Handicap?

Unfortunately not. If you do not belong to a golf club and therefore do not have a World Handicap you must register as a CASUAL Linksnet member.  

08

If I register as a CLUB member, can I enter competition scores from a club outside of the UK?

Yes, as long as your score is registered for your World Handicap then any individual score can be accepted.

09

How do I earn Linksnet points and how do my scores get converted into Linksnet points?

You earn Linksnet points by submitting rounds of golf played.

CLUB members enter individual scores that can be verified on their World Handicap record or via their golf club competition results.

CASUAL members enter individual scores that can be verified by a signed scorecard (or digital scorecard).  

All Linksnet members can enter Matchplay scores against other Linksnet members. Matchplay wins earn 2 points, draws earn 1 point and losses earn 0 points.

For all types of rounds listed above, if you score net under par that earns you points. For example, 4 under par net is 4 points, 2 under par net is 2 points and so on. Level par net is 0 points, whilst over par net rounds earn negative points. For example 3 over par net is -3 points and 1 over par net is -1 points.

The leaderboard is based on your 6 best scores only although only 3 of those 6 scores can be Matchplay scores.
