Fully licensed CONGU, EGA & USGA Handicapping
Current Software Version: 10.1.2
All affiliated golf clubs in the UK are required to abide by the handicapping rules and guidelines set out by CONGU®, the body that oversees the system for determining and adjusting handicaps.
Only software vendors that have worked with CONGU® to develop and maintain the system to the required standards are permitted to offer a product bearing the CONGU® trademark and using their formula. Intelligentgolf holds full license F1204, and has been a licensee since 2006.
With instant updates to the software, you are always up to date with the latest changes, no update CDs or downtime is required.
As one of the key partners working with the R&A and CONGU, intelligentgolf is at the forefront of preparations for the forthcoming changes to handicapping, planned for 2020.
With support already in place for supplementary scores to be entered via app or touchscreen in the clubhouse, the preparations are well under way to support the shift in handicapping to allow recording of all scores.
As the changes to the WHS are announced, intelligentgolf are working hard to ensure our product will allow clubs and associations a seamless transition to the new rules.
With full support for the English, Scottish and Welsh Central Database of Handicaps, as well as the Golfing Union or Ireland's GolfNet service, intelligentgolf makes administration and access to the CDH a breeze.
As an online system, intelligentgolf is constantly connected to the CDH, giving realtime lookups on visitor handicaps, up to date exact handicaps for away members and 24x7 background checked for away scores.
When an away score is found for the club, our unique duplicate prevention system verifies it is a newly reported score, and then notifies by email designated officials at the club who are able to accept or reject the score from anywhere, even via their smartphone. This allows players, especially juniors who play a disproportionate amount of away golf, to have their handicap record updated as soon as possible, with a minimum amount of effort from the handicap committee.
Handicapping should be transparent and visible to all members. For too long handicapping has been seen as a black art, hidden away on antiquated computers managed by specific members. Intelligentgolf changes all that, and brings handicapping out into the open. With full breakdown of competition scratch score information, all handicap changes, and even the individual member's handicap record, open and available to all current members,
With more than 10 million rounds of golf and 11 years of experience, intelligentgolf is trusted to run qualifying competitions at the top levels of the amateur game. From the Duke of York Young Champions Trophy to your club's Seniors Open, the same engine drives all our clubs.
This means that you are always compliant with the latest changes from CONGU, and never running out of date software.
Being able to administer competitions and handicaps from almost any device with internet access greatly eases the role of the handicap secretary. Faster turnaround of competititions, and especially the ability to verify and add an away score downloaded by CDH with just a couple of clicks.

The system is also constantly updated to meet the changing requirements of CONGU Handicapping and the unions.

Let us take care of the technical issues, leaving you to the golf.
