Scottish Golf App

App for IOS
App for Android

The Scottish Golf App is the golfer’s gateway to golf in Scotland whether they are a member of a Scottish Golf club or a guest.

Members of golf clubs in Scotland with a current Scottish Golf CDH ID number can check their official Handicap Index and share their handicap certificate.

If your club is using the VMS Software then every aspect of your membership can be managed through a single login on the club website and the app.

Play for Your Handicap at Any Time Using General Play on the Scottish Golf App

One of the major benefits of the new World Handicap System (WHS) is the option to submit General Play scores.

General Play enables you to submit scores for their WHS Handicap Index from any course at any time – you can even decide to do this on the day. Therefore you don’t have to wait until the next medal day at your club or for an open competition in order to improve your handicap.

You can register and submit your General Play scores quickly and easily through the Scottish Golf App. Read our simple guide on how to do this by clicking here or watch the video below:
