    Can you really call yourself a low handicapper.....

    If you never leave your home club to play opens/scratch events etc?

    no agenda here, just intrigued as to people's views on the matter

    Low to me is Cat 1, we have a girl who plays off 5, she works full time so only has chance for one maybe 2 games a week so doesn't get the chance to play at other comps, I would class her as a low handicapper

    Negative. Two is very low.

    For me 5 and below is a low handicap.

    I think I have more respect for those that play lots of qualifiers and at different courses but don't think someone who sticks to their own course invalidates their handicap.

    If you have a low handicap you are a low handicap player. Simple as that, no ifs no buts no maybes. Oh and LOL at only being low at 0 or better! Gotta love throwaway comments where you wish you could take them back after they've been said out loud 😂

    that's well put, and I think we have a similar view. I think sometimes I see people at my club off a similar handicap and think (maybe wrongly),'there is no way we are the same standard of golfer'.

    and then on the flip side I'll play in some opens with someone off 1 or lower, and think, 'I am so far from being as good as you it's a joke'

    Where did I ask what a low handicap was? No where.
