Enderby Warren Golf Society Handicap System

 

To enter competitions you must be a paid up member and have a handicap.

 

As a Golf Society we cannot provide ‘Official CONGU Handicaps’;

 however the EWGS Handicap System follows CONGU guidelines.

 

To achieve a handicap, 3 cards, over 18 holes, verified and signed by a bona fide Society member need to be submitted to the golf shop for the attention of the Handicap Secretary.

 

A calculation is performed on each of the cards to discount any strokes you will have taken which are more than 2 over the par of any hole. The card with the lowest total (after this calculation) is then used to allocate a handicap.  The standard scratch score (SSS) of the course (72 for gents and 73 for ladies) is then taken from this score to obtain the playing handicap.

 

A Society handicap certificate can be issued if required.

 Handicaps are cut as follows:

The category number relating to the handicap range is multiplied by the difference between the net score and the standard scratch score (71 for men, 73 for ladies). This figure is then subtracted from the exact handicap, which is rounded up or down to give the revised playing handicap.

 

Handicaps are increased as follows:

The exact handicap in all categories will be increased by 0.1, if the net score is above the buffer zone.

 

For handicap purposes, the maximum allowable score on any hole is a net double bogey.

 

Handicaps should be self-regulated, but if anyone about to play in a competition suspects that their handicap has changed and cannot perform the calculation should record this observation on the scorecard before the start of play.

                                      Handicap Reviews for the 2017 season

A review of all players’ handicaps was conducted by the handicap secretary Gordon Milner  

The format of the review was as follows:

All the players handicaps were reviewed and adjusted accordingly. The review was based on all players home games, EWGS tours were not taken into consideration.

The review was based on the total score of the last three competition games any player played up to the end of October 2016. The following is an example:

Total scores of: 95+94+90 = 279/3 = 93 average score. Present handicap 5.9. Average score 93 - 5.9 = 87.1 if the player had played to their handicap. The difference multiplied by the player's existing buffer zone, 0.3 = 1.77 added to their existing handicap of 16.1 gives the player a new handicap of 17.87.
