Member’s Update – from the Men’s Captain – 2016-09-30 10:57:58

Competition Grades

Currently the competition grades are as follows (based on a players GA handicap) 

  • A Grade: Up to 13.4 GA
  • B Grade: 13.5 to 18.6
  • C Grade: Greater than 18.6

 This grading system creates inconsistencies at the 13.4 GA handicap cut off – e.g. because of the slope rating of our Blue and Black courses a player on 13.4 in a Blue tee comp plays in A Grade with a daily handicap of 15 while in a Black tee event the players daily handicap is 16.

To remove this inconsistency and also provide more appropriate grading’s for the men’s competitions the match committee have decided that the following changes will be made to our competition grades –

 The GA grading system will be replaced with players Daily Handicap.

The competition grades will be as follows (based on a players Daily Handicap) – 

  • A Grade: Up to 13
  • B Grade: 14 to 21
  • C Grade: Greater than 22

This change will see a small number of players with daily handicaps of 14 and 15 move from A Grade to B Grade. The change will take effect from this Saturday, 1st October.

 

Pace of Play

Due to the improved timings for completion of rounds on a Thursday following the trial of tee times on the 1st and the 10th this will now be implemented for all future Thursday competitions. Earlier tee times are also now available on the 10th during the summer months.

Pace of Play, however remains an issue at the club and I would remind players of the following strategies to keep in mind while they are playing their round to ensure that playing groups complete their rounds within a reasonable time (i.e. 4hrs 15 minutes) – 

  1. Keep up with the group in front.
  2. Pick up in stableford comps if hole wiped.
  3. Shorter hitters hit first if in no danger of reaching group in front.
  4. Arrive early to be ready for tee time.
  5. Hit when ready (disregard honour)
  6. Aim to play in 20 seconds (pre shot routine to execution)

Hopefully if we are all mindful of playing at a better pace we can make our golfing days more enjoyable for ourselves, playing partners and members.

It would be a great result if we can achieve improved Pace of Play by adopting the above strategies and without the need to monitor individual completion times.

 

Regards
