From our Club Captain, Mark Poulson

  • A couple of extra pieces of information for you now that the world has joined us – WHS (world handicapping system) . do you know that handicaps for both men and women can go out to 54 now, this apart of being not gender specific based handicap limits as well a way for keeping players enjoying their game and in it longer.  At this stage we have no intention of changing any grades  and will just let it play out over 6 months to see what or if any impact there is for us. -5-12, 13-19, 20-54 is how it currently looks for a standard competition.
  • Did you know we don’t have a DSR any longer? Its now a PCC ( Player Conditions Calculation ) I’ll let you google that one
  • For everyone playing along at home this is how you can manually work out your daily handicap, whether that be at RGC or anywhere in the World
    • 18 Hole Daily Handicap = (Players GA handicap x Slope rating / 113) + (Scratch Rating – Par)) x 0.93
    • 9 Hole Daily Handicap = (Players GA handicap x Slope rating / 113) + (Scratch Rating – Par) x 2 ) x 0.93
  • The Hopwood cup and our first honour board event this year is on in 2 weeks are you ready?
