Frequently Asked Questions

I do not know my WHS number

If your home club uses Intelligent Golf then you will be able to find your WHS number in the IG Member App or on the website via the MY Golf section. Other member websites may well hold that information in your player record. Otherwise contact your Club Secretary or Handicap Secretary, who will be able to supply you with this information.

I don't have a smartphone so cannot download the app

Should you not have access to a digital county card, due to not owning a smart phone or device, the following question could be asked upon phoning the club you wish to visit.

‘would the club honour the discount (if there is one) if the name, club and WHS ID number were provided prior to travelling?’

Possibly a form of ID would be necessary if the club accepted this was satisfactory.

Alternativley, ask a friend or fellow member to temporarily download the App and insert your details to display your County Card. You can take a screen shot using your phone.
Once this has been sent by email or printed directly from the phone, the App can be deleted and reinstalled with a different WHS ID.

The APP is not working properly on my phone or device Refresh the APP on your phone / device. If this fails, it may be that your device needs restarting or that you may need to delete the APP and re-download the APP again. By reinstalling the APP, along with your credentials it should then once again  allow you access to your County Card.
