CONGU CHANGES for 2018 (www.congu.co.uk) The main change is the addition of Category 6 for players with handicaps from 37 to 54.  Categories 5 & 6 are now also available for male golfers.  All CONGU changes are available HERE

England Golf - Recording of Non-Qualifying Scores.  England Golf announced in January 2017 that they were enforcing Clauses 4.5b and 8.12 of the CONGU Unified Handicapping System.   These require players to return all scores in Non Qualifying Competitions.  It is hoped that this initiative will provide clubs with more information regarding the true ability of players, especially those who play a lot of their golf away from their Home club. This will give Handicap Committees more information on a player’s performance when carrying out the Annual Review.  For further information, click HERE
