    Re: Handicap without a club

    As soon as you leave the club, assuming you don't move to another club immediately, your handicap will cease to exist. You no longer belong to a club and aren't associated with the local Golf Union through the club, so, no official handicap.

    Doesn't it stay "active" for a year?

    Wouldn't that be if you were still a member of a club?? i would imagine that you would not be able to play in opens or comps as you would not have paid your competition/union fee's.

    Congu manual says ....

    26.1 A CONGU Handicap is lost when a player ceases to be a Member of an Affiliated Club.
    When a player resigns from a club and joins another there is often a time interval between
    the two memberships. If the handicap of a player is to be restored within twelve months of
    the date on which his handicap was lost, or suspended, it must be reinstated at the same
    handicap the player last held. In restoring the handicap of a player whose c status
    handicap has been lost in such circumstances that c status shall remain valid for the
    remainder of the calendar year of resignation and for the full following calendar year. In all
    other cases the player shall be allotted a new handicap after he has complied with the
    requirements of Clause 16.
