Benefits of Platinum Account

The key benefits of the Platinum Account Handicap Card Service are as follows:

  • Up to date and recognised handicap certificate
  • Credit card sized plastic card that fits in your wallet
  • All Premium account functionality
  • £25 Golfbreaks.com online voucher
  • Keep it with you at all times as proof of your handicap with a stylish and distinctive card design
  • Ideal for confirming your handicap at golf events and private member clubs and essential when playing abroad where proof of handicap is often required
  • Request a new card when you need one – you are in control!
  • Efficient service - with a quick and easy to use online system

How does it work?

1. Welcome Handicap Pack

When you subscribe to the service you will need to add or have previously added a minimum of three rounds to our score tracking system so that we can calculate your handicap. As soon as you have done that we will send you a Welcome Handicap Pack containing the following:

  • Your handicap card
  • A golfshake.com Advanced Stats Recorder
  • A welcome letter
  • £25 Golfbreaks.com online voucher

2. Two handicap cards a year!

As part of the service you can receive two handicap cards a year. The first card is sent with your welcome pack and will be dated with the date that you subscribed to the service (once you have added three or more rounds). You can then request one more card over your 12 month subscription period.

A new card is only sent to you when you request one, which means that you will receive it exactly when you want to receive it. For instance you may want a new card because you are going to play overseas on holiday in Spain or Portugal where handicap certificates are required to play many of the courses, or it might be because you have a golf competition coming up, or because your handicap has gone down a digit (congratulations!) or even up (it happens to us all!). In essence you are in complete control of when you receive your additional card each year.

Additional cards can be purchased, should you require more than 2, on request.

3. 12 months’ Premium Membership Included

When you subscribe to the Platinum Account Handicap Card Service, you will also get 12 months’ Premium website membership included. Premium membership gives you access to lots more website features and functionality such as:
