CONGU ratify changes to the Unified Handicapping System for 2016


As previously reported, CONGU were considering a number of changes to the Unified Handicapping System for implementation in 2016.

These changes have now been discussed and will be implemented from 1st January 2016.

A number of proposals including the following were agreed: –

  • 4BBB allowance to change to 90% instead of current three quarters (75%)
  • Supplementary Scores accepted from all GB & I clubs that a player is a member.
  • 9-Hole Supplementary Scores will now be accepted.
  • CSS Calculation for men will now include Category 4 players. Ladies’ calculations already include Category 4.

Several other decisions were also agreed and these can be found on England Golf’s website.

England Golf will be hosting a number of handicap sessions, in October/November 2015, to help put these changes into context.

Register your interest in these workshops. 

Any information made available by the remaining Home Unions will be found on their respective websites when announced. See either GUI, GUW or SGU.
