This is some information regarding your handicap from One Golf, if you register for a competition, and decide not to scan your card, or forget to scan your card. A “No Score  not Approved” is what is recorded on your handicap record if your card is not scanned
Provisional H’cap status Notice:
By default, if a golfer has five or more “no score not approved” entries in their last 20 rounds, their h’c…ap status will be now set as Provisional by GolfLink. This can not be amended within the MiClub system. We will show a red “P” in the players booking cell on the admin tee sheet to identify them. Members will not see this on their tee sheets.
This will mean by default in the MiClub comp mgmt system that we won’t rank the player in the competition leaderboard so that they are not eligible to win a prize though The players score entered will still be loaded for handicapping purposes automatically.
It is a decision of the club that they can overturn this and allow provisional players to be ranked and therefore eligible to win prizes. If this is so; please advise MiClub and we’ll change a property to allow for this. email support@miclub.com.au
Additional info (MiClub have decided that any special prizes will still be applied to Provisional players such as a Hole IN One or Eagle.) If this is not wanted, you can manually remove the special prize for the provisional player from the prize allocation area.So think twice before you decide not to scan your card for whatever reason. You could lose your competition rights.
