The EGU Central Database of Handicaps (CDH) was introduced in 2009 to assist Golf Clubs in the administration of their member’s handicaps and in particular in the transfer of qualifying scores back to the player’s home golf club.
The CDH has in excess of 1800 golf clubs and approx 750,000 men and women registered on the system.
The key principles in the operation of the system is that each home club member, with a CONGU handicap, is assigned a CDH lifetime ID number. This number will allow other clubs to both confirm the individual’s membership of a golf club as well as their exact playing handicap. This is particularly useful in terms of entry into Open competitions and the increasing number of clubs operating online entries. Full details of the scheme may be found under "Extras"
