Handy Recap 1.0

And now, the end is near; and so you may face the final curtain.

They’ve stated their case, of which, they are certain.

The Council of National Golf Unions Limited (CONGU) recently announced a number of revisions to the CONGU manual. The much debated and most talked about relate to the handicap system and the degree of increases (or in some instances, decreases) you can incur in a calendar year.

From the Golfnet website:

Among the most significant changes in the 2016 edition of the manual are:
• Exact Handicaps: In Ireland lowest exact handicap is now restricted to 1.0 stroke increase in a calendar year.
• Four Ball Better Ball Handicap Allowance: In stroke play each partner will receive 90% of their full handicap, and in match play the back marker now concedes strokes to the other three players based on 90% of the difference between the full handicaps rather than 75% (3/4) as at present
• Reinstatement of Handicap Status: The reinstatement of a competition status handicap requires a player to submit 3 qualifying scores (which could be 18 hole competitions, 9 hole competitions or Supplementary Scores both home and/or away)
• Continuous Handicap Review: To assist with this process there will now be a computer generated report which highlights those players with 7 consecutive 0.1 increases. Handicap Committees are now recommended to review the performance of such players and to give due consideration to applying a handicap increase where applicable or required.
• Dates – The handicap year will now follow the calendar year,1 January to 31 December, and a player’s handicap will be based on scores returned within that period
