CYPRUS GOLF FEDERATION

Promoting Amateur Golf in Cyprus

MyCGF – Your guide to personal DataGolf Portal.

The MyCGF portal enables Federated Members of the CGF to view their Results, Handicap history and enables self-submission of handicap qualifying scorecards.

This MyCGF release utilises DataGolf records based upon the European Golf Association (EGA) handicap system. An updated version with additional features will be released closer to adoption of the World Handicap System (WHS) Rules of Handicapping (RoG) on 1 Feb 2020. In the interim we urge all players to register and get familiar with the portal.

In order to access and use MyCGF portal, it is imperative that you ensure the DataGolf administrator at your club has registered a valid and correct email address in your personal profile, in his database.
