Golfers in Great Britain and Ireland will soon be able to post scores to their handicap record from outside their home nation.

The functionality is set to launch from Tuesday 13 June, allowing golfers from any of the home nations to post scores from within GB&I to their handicap record.

This will allow golfers from Scotland to play and post scores from the rest of the UK and Ireland directly to their handicap record, where previously scores would have to have been manually submitted by their club.

This change will require users to download an update to their My Scottish Golf app and they will get a notification when this is ready.

The new functionality will also allow those who are from different jurisdictions to attest scores for each other after playing together.

For example, a golfer from Scotland, will now be able to attest a score for a golfer from England, and vice versa.

This was a function that was included as standard by Scottish Golf since July 2021, but was temporarily suspended to allow time to migrate to DotGolf, the system that the My Scottish Golf app now operates on.

Scottish Golf say this will be a frictionless process, with only a couple of extra steps to the process that golfers will already be used to.

David Kernohan, Head of VMS at Scottish Golf, said:

“We are really excited to re-launch this across GB&I, we know players have missed the ability to post scores from outside of Scotland. Scottish Golf’s short-term rollback of this functionality allowed us to work collaboratively with the other home nations and bring a smooth interoperability function back to Scottish golfers this spring.

“We recognise that Scotland’s booming golf tourism industry brings many domestic tourists to our golf courses, and it was important to launch this before the height of the summer tourist season. We will now continue to work with our provider to ensure scores from outside of GB&I can also be included.”

Fraser Thornton, Interim CEO of Scottish Golf, said:

“Interoperability has been on the development pathway for some time and we are pleased to have been able to collaborate on this important tech development with the other home nations, for everyone’s benefit.

“We’re sure golfers up and down the country will enjoy how easy and simply they can now post their scores back home.”
