I have studied the St. Andrews golf website fairly thoroughly and cannot find what is acceptable as an official handicap card/certificate. My husband and friend want to play during July 2013. My husband belongs to a golf club and can get a handicap card from there. His friend is a good golfer but has not belonged to a club for at least four years.
Does anyone know what he needs to do to get an official handicap? He will have next summer to get some recent scores but will not want to join a club to do so. Is there a way to play a number of times next summer and submit the handicaps to an organization that can provide him with the necessary card?
Any help on this is much appreciated.
