New Notice has been posted by Graham Fullagar on Master Scoreboard regarding the 7 x 0.1 Increase: 20 Jan 17 - Posted by GRAHAM
7 X .1 INCREASE - As part of the introduction of the new handicapping measures, representatives of the club attended an England Golf seminar and are being been kept up to date with developments. The new system was explained to the committee and detailed discussion took place as to how we operate the system to be fair on the members but also to keep the work of the volunteer committee members to a minimum. Our policy to achieve these aims is set out below:
IF YOU HAVE 7 X .1 INCREASES IN COMPETITION THEN YOUR HANDICAP IS INCREASED BY ONE SHOT. (IF DECIDED BY THE HANDICAP COMMITTEE.) YOU DO NOT HAVE TO ACCEPT THIS INCREASE BUT SHOULD INFORM THE COMMITTE IF YOU WISH TO HAVE IT REVOKED BEFORE YOU PLAY IN ANOTHER QUALIFYING COMPETITION. HANDICAP COMMITTEENew Trial Memberships
