Handicaps & Competitions Notice No. 33

Annual Handicap Review

The Annual Handicap Review has been carried out in accordance with the Guide-lines set out in the Unified Handicapping System. To complete it we also needed to take into consideration the recent changes to the System and these are reflected in the decisions we made.

As a result some Members have had their handicaps adjusted. Details of the changes to Exact Handicaps have been formally published on the Master Score-board database, and will also appear on Noticeboards, the Handicap Register in Changing Rooms and here (PDF 111KB)pdf logo transparent 150x150 11

These changes apply from Friday 4th January 2019

Those with adjusted handicaps will be monitored to confirm that the Annual Review has been fair and equitable.

Increases do not affect any on-going match play competitions e.g. Winter Four-somes, where the Handicap the player entered with is the maximum they can play off.

To retain a Competition Handicap members are required to submit a minimum of 3 returns in the year up to 1st January. Please see “Non-Competition” Handicap List on Noticeboards and here (PDF 107KB) pdf logo transparent 150x150 11

Please contact me if ill health or injury has pre-cluded someone from returning sufficient scores. Members with a Non-competition Handicap may play in a Competition, and whilst they can win subsidiary prizes (e.g. 2’s sweep), they cannot win any competition prizes.

If anyone has any queries / concerns, think they have been omitted or just think that we have got it wrong, please have a look at your Player Record by logging in to Master Scoreboard > My Golf > My Playing History.

If concerns remain, please contact - for the Men - Colin Nolan or George Rumbold and for the Ladies - Kate Wright.
