Handicaps and Rules

England Golf presented the World Handicap System to representatives of Bedfordshire golf clubs on Tuesday 15 May. It is expected to start in Spring 2020. Further information will follow over the next year. 

The latest England Golf Women's Newsletter can be downloaded HERE

World Handicap System (WHS) - Press Release from R&A - HERE

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

LATEST ON RULES FOR THE FUTURE

GOLF'S MODERNISED RULES RELEASED  (for implementation on 1 January, 2019).

The R&A and the USGA finalised golf’s new Rules this month after an extensive review which included a request for feedback from the global golf community on the proposed changes. Golfers can now access the official 2019 Rules of Golf by visiting www.rules.golf

RULES

The R&A and USGA announced a new Local Rule in 2017 which eliminates the penalty for a golfer who accidentally causes a ball to move on the putting green.  This Local Rule can be adopted by clubs for their own competitions, and will be adopted by The R&A and the USGA in all of their championships, qualifying competitions and international matches.  This Local Rule has also been incorporated into the England Golf Hard Card.  LOCAL RULE


Finally, I would like to offer Rules Seminars to ladies’ sections of Bedfordshire clubs.  I can offer two formats:

  • A clubhouse based session with some introductory information followed by an informal quiz; or
  • A practical session out on the practice ground with demonstration of rules situations.

Please contact me if you are interested in having such a meeting at your club.
