The winter season is well and truly under way with great numbers enjoying the 11 hole competitions. There have been some great scores to date and just a reminder to everyone that for winter golf the following applies:
No signing into the computer – just put your name in the book, your money in the envelope, do your card as normal and when you come back in simply put your card in the score box.
Your official ILGU handicap does not get amended from play during the 11 and 9 hole competitions but we do have an in-club winter handicap rule as follows:
- For 11 hole competitions if the score is greater than 18 points the winner’s handicap is deducted 2 points, second place gets 1 point deducted.
- For 9 hole competitions if the score is greater than 16 points the winner’s handicap is deducted 2 points, second place gets 1 point deducted. For less than 16 points first gets 1 point deducted and second gets .5 deducted.
- For 11 holes with less than 18 points first is deducted 1 shot and second place gets .5 deducted.
- The winter handicap sheet is on the notice board so if you have come first or second in the competitions check what you are playing off before you go out in the weekly competition.
