NEW HANDICAP SYSTEM

Golf Australia have posted the following short video clips, to further explain the New Handicap System which will be introduced throughout Australia 23 January 2014. There will also be a terrific Daily Handicap calculator function available on the GOLF Link website (www.golflink.com.au) from 23 January.  This will be a new feature on each player’s handicap record page.  It will be simple to use and it will enable a player to very quickly determine what their Daily Handicap will be for any Slope Rating

1/ Playing Golf under Slope.

  • For handicapping, all Stroke scores must be converted to and processed as, Stableford scores. Where the competition is Stroke the Stroke score will be the Competition Score; the Stableford Score will be the Handicapping Score.
  • Any round played under the Par scoring system will be converted by Golf Link into a Stableford Score by adding 36 points to the player’s final result. For example a score of minus 4 will be converted to 32 points, which will be the player’s Handicapping Score
  • If a player is competing in a Stroke or Par competition, their Stableford score is disregarded when assessing Competition placing.
  • The purpose of this regulation is to a) reduce the effect of high individual hole scores for handicapping purposes, in order to make handicaps more representative of a player’s potential ability and b) to make all handicaps as equitable as possible by using a uniform score type for all handicapping.
  • Golf Australia have noted in their advice to clubs, it is the player’s responsibility to record their Stableford score, when playing in a Stroke competition and not the responsibility of club officials to convert a player’s Stroke score.
