Handicap Revision & Society Rules

Notes from our Secretary:-

All Entry Forms for our meetings are now sent out by e-mail so it is vital that I have your current e-mail address. Just by this action alone it will save the Society in the region of £60.00 a year.

Several have recently been returned as 'undeliverable' so if you change your e-mail please let me know.

Similarly, a dozen or so of our members do not have an e-mail address registered at all therefore they will receive nothing even the important Annual Report and Accounts which is now sent by email.

9. Handicaps
Subject to any changes voted for at an Annual General Meeting and with the introduction in 2020 of the new World Handicapping System, members shall play from their current club handicap which will be adjusted according to the Slope Rating of every course played giving the Course Handicap which is then multiplied by 0.95% to give the Playing Handicap showing the number of strokes received in our competitions.

Presently there is no handicap limit.

The winner and runner up of any singles competition shall have their handicap reduced by two strokes and one stroke respectively which will expire on the anniversary and apply to all other competition formats. Members and guests shall always play from the lower if they have two handicaps.
