Captain’s Comments

Welcome to a new season at Melrose Golf Club with the hope that the weather will be kind and bring many months of favourable conditions for a successful year of golf.

I am honoured to be Captain for 2018 having first joined the club back in 1989 when I moved to the area from Jedburgh and thank last year’s Captain William Wallace for choosing me.

A few things have changed since last year in respect of Committee members as we now have a new House Convener and Competition Secretary, so I would ask all members to be patient with the new volunteers, especially the Competition Secretary, to allow them to get up to speed with their duties.

We are hoping to increase the usage of the club facilities for and by members by offering some basic food, especially on competition days and encourage members to stay a while, have a drink and socialise after playing.

Finally I wish all members a successful golfing year and look forward to seeing you all on the course and in the clubhouse throughout the golfing season.

Scottish Central Database of Handicaps

Scottish Golf logoMembers please be aware all handicaps have now been listed with new Scottish Central Database of Handicaps (‘CDH’) system.
If you have previously registered your details with CDH your login page can be found here:

As a member of the club this now allows you access to your exact and playing handicap and for the first time your full Player Handicap Record online, giving round by round details of all your qualifying scores in chronological order.

Following your golf club registering you as a ‘home’ member, you have automatically been allocated a Unique CDH ID Number within the club’s handicapping software, identifying you individually on the CDH. This Unique CDH ID number will also ensure that all your away scores in Qualifying Competitions are automatically transferred back to your home golf club, helping keep your handicap up-to-date at all times. If you have a current handicap at Melrose Golf Club and wish confirmation of your CDH ID number please contact our handicap secretary on handicapsecretary@melrosegolfcourse.co.uk.

Your ID number may be needed in the future for use on Open Competition entry forms or you may be asked to perhaps provide this number to competition organising committees to verify your handicap online if obtaining a late entry into a competition.

Please advise all other golf clubs of which you are a member of your ‘home’ club CDH ID Number so that this can be registered within their handicapping software and facilitate the automatic return of your ‘away’ scores back to your ‘home’ golf club.

To access your CDH information, all you are required to do is register on the CDH at:

Simply enter your Unique CDH ID Number and follow the on-screen instructions to complete the registration process.

You will then have unlimited, free access to all your handicap and Player Handicap Record information as it changes during the playing season – keeping you informed of your official CONGU® Handicap at all times – keeping track of your progress, as each season unfolds.

Should you have any further questions or comments regarding your membership of Melrose Golf Club, please feel free to complete our enquiry form on our contact page and we will respond as quickly as we can.
