Handicaps

Junior Academy players will have an “Academy” handicap based over 6 holes on the practise course, issued by the Club Pro on assessment of ability.

 

Full junior members will be issued with a “club” handicap which will be used for the purpose of the 6 hole league competitions. The first award will generally be 36.0. For each 6 hole competition, the following reductions will apply:

 

1st - 2 shots

2nd - 1 shot

 

Shots can be given back at any time by the club pro on assessment of performance.

 

For older juniors they will also have a CONGU handicap after they have handed in 3 cards from the measured course. This will be used for all 18 hole competitions and will be kept in line with CONGU rules. CONGU and club handicaps will be kept totally separate. The CONGU handicaps will be kept on the clubs database. All club handicaps will be on a spreadsheet in the pro shop.

 

Juniors are encouraged to do supplementary cards throughout the year to lower their handicaps.

 

Results

All results and handicaps will be posted on the club notice board and the clubs website.
