Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Battle Ready - Thomas Souness, Cape Town

Ge­orge Golf Club have pro­duced one of the best score­cards I have seen in South Africa, even glob­ally.With most golf clubs hav­ing to print new score­cards due to the course rat­ing changes, this was a good op­por­tu­nity for clubs to im­pro­vise. Con­sid­er­able thought and in­put from the Ge­orge club cap­tain Daryl Austin must have gone into their new score­card.

It re­ally ticks all the boxes for what golfers want from a score­card. Ev­ery­thing is there in front of you, plus a few un­ex­pected ex­tras.

The card has space for all four play­ers to record in­di­vid­ual scores and Stable­ford points. In­for­ma­tion in­cludes the course de­signer, height above sea level, the holes where plus hand­i­caps must con­cede strokes, and the flag colour pin place­ments.

The course eti­quette re­quire­ments are there on the back page, in­clud­ing a re­quest to play Ready Golf. Start and fin­ish times for a round can be in­cluded. And there’s even a re­marks box!
