Paul, I am quite sure that most clubs would accept the Golfshake handicap car for normal play, but I doubt very much that they would allow it for any Open competition.
It is normal to have a recognised CONGU handicap for this type of competition and rightly so in my opinion.
Handicap : 18.1

john is right on that i have never been asked for my golfshake card when i play that even at a big posh private club near me they never asked, as for comps you would need a club handicap as they would never know the truth you could say you play of 28 but you are a 16 or something as i am sure someone would try it
Handicap : 12.2

John is correct in that 'official' club competitions such as 'Open Club Competitions' will generally require an 'official' CONGU handicap, by design these are for visiting club golfers hence the requirements.
I've known some courses accept our handicap in the past for Open club comps with stipulations but that is down to individual venues.
The Golfshake golf handicap is widely recognised for social play and proof of your playing ability.
The following is a list of some courses that will and will not accept the handicap for play, Ciaran hope this helps. It's worth noting this is an old list and we are working to update and get fully acceptance, also note that the 3rd course on the list was related to the Old Course only and as of 2011 they will accept the Golfshake/Golfscoretracker handicap.
