- GOLF Link does not take any responsibility for clubs uploading incorrect results. Golfers are responsible for bringing any score concerns to the attention of the relevant club.
- Golf Link Cup points will be based on the Z-scores for each Stableford score within a golf competition as received by GOLF Link. (The Z-score is the number of standard deviations the given score is away from the mean in the relevant competition). Golf Link Cup points for a competition will be the Z-score multiplied by 10,000.
- All competition scores are converted to Stableford by GOLF Link for the purpose of calculating Golf Link Cup points.
- For each competition GOLF Link will work out the average Stableford score and the standard deviation for that competition.
- GOLF Link will use extended decimal places to separate and order players as required.
- No Score Approved, Disqualified (DQ), Ad Hoc scores and Conforming Social Scores do not count towards players' scores.
- Whilst any competition field may be mixed gender, GOLF Link automatically calculates results for men and women separately.

- Any ties will be separated with the following method as required:

- This will be a formal handicapped round, played with Stableford scoring. The first place getter in the final will win a replica of a perpetual trophy as well as have their name inscribed on a perpetual Golf Link Cup trophy.

Any activity by a player that could result in a manipulation of the scorecard or handicap may render that player suspended from the relevant Series, which can result in removal from leaderboard, ineligibility for prizes and ineligibility to qualify for finals amongst other outcomes. In particular more than one NCR score returned in a registered golfer’s history during the course of a Series will cause close scrutiny.
