Japaneasy Does It – 11th April 2021
There were some masterful performances at the Japanese course on Sunday as the rising sun lit up some excellent golf in tricky conditions. Shogunning their way to be emperor of the divisions were Mike Ashley, Brent Young and Palle Jensen, with Palle once again taking the Low Gross honours with a sugoi 74. There were some great scores on the day with more than a third of the field beating their handicap, so congrats to all who came along – although sadly in need of a bit of kaizen was There’s Always Next Week winner Michael Charlton.
This Sunday 18th April we’re making our first visit of the season to BGC “home course” Huatang Golf Club, with a 9am start – the course is normally in great condition and it’s a popular layout so hopefully you’ll be able to come along and play. PLEASE NOTE – the course is “over the border” on the Hebei side of the river so please remember to BRING YOUR PASSPORTS / ID CARDS as we’ll need to pass through the border checkpoint on the way back to Beijing.
Thanks and see you 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.
