CGU Terms of Competition require players wishing to represent a club in all county team competitions to have their handicap held at that club. The handicap must have been so held by the club for a minimum of one month prior to the commencement of the competition and must remain at the club for the duration of the competition. Players cannot play in more than one team for their club in the competitions with one exception – one player from the Frank Wills may move to the CTC but could not then return to the Frank Wills.
