Changes to the CONGU Handicap System – effective from 1.1.18.

There have been a few changes to the CONGU handicap system, which come into effect on the 1st of January 2018. The main changes which will affect members of ALGC are:

• There will be a new Category 6 for Women, providing for a maximum handicap of 54.0 for all golfers. Players will be able to maintain a Competition Handicap in all six categories. Upward adjustment for all categories will remain at 0.1 and downward adjustments for Net Differentials below Buffer Zones will be 0.5 for Category 5 and 0.6 for Category 6.

• After 1st January 2018 Handicap Committees can increase handicaps above the current limits of 36.0, and they will also increase above those limits automatically as a result of above Buffer Zone returns in Qualifying Competitions and Supplementary Score submissions.

• Supplementary Scores – Relaxation of the rules to allow an unlimited number of score submissions per year and removal of the restriction of one per week. However, the restriction on Category 1 players will remain in place.

• 9 Hole Competitions – For handicap purposes, 9-Hole Medal scores will be converted to Stableford and will appear as Stableford on the players handicap record.

• Handicap Adjustments – Confirmation that adherence to Appendix M (Guidelines for Handicap Review) is mandatory not optional. The Annual Review of handicaps identifies:

o those players whose general playing performance and scoring pattern over the year is better than that expected for their Handicap Category and who should be considered for a reduction of handicap; and

o those players whose general playing performance and scoring pattern over the year is inferior to that expected for their Handicap Category and who should be considered for an increase of handicap.

It should be noted that the majority of Members, particularly those who have returned a reasonable number of Qualifying Scores through the year, will probably have had appropriate handicap alterations applied by the system and do not require further adjustment under Clause 23.

Full details of the CONGU changes for 2018 are posted on the Noticeboard along with a sheet showing FAQ.
