Grand Canal – 12th Sept 2021

We were lucky to avoid most of the rain at a damp Grand Canal on Sunday and a few happy gondoliers successfully punted their way to the top of the leaderboard – so it’s congratulations to Divisional Winners Cliff Hegan, Brian Bade and Michael Charlton, with Michael also sailing off with the Low Gross honours.

This Sunday 19th Sept we’re at Orient Tianxing with a 12 noon tee-off – the course is in excellent condition and the temperature is perfect for golf at the moment, so bring your friends along and have some fun!

Thanks and see you all on Sunday!

Gaining a Handicap at BGC

Being a member of BGC also offers you the chance to gain an official USGA handicap that you can transfer to other clubs or use when visiting other courses.

When you first join BGC, if you have an officially-recognised handicap from another club then just give Rainbow the details and this will transfer over to BGC and let you start playing handicap golf in Beijing immediately.

But don’t worry if you don’t have a handicap or are new to the game – as per the USGA rules, once you’ve played five rounds with BGC you’ll be assigned a handicap – then the more you play the more accurate your handicap will become.

For further information just check out this article about gaining an official USGA handicap – www.liveabout.com/establishing-a-handicap-1561059

If you have any further questions just contact Rainbow or ask a member of the BGC Committee.
