Hi, the fixture list is being printed now and should be available next week.

We have included a page to promote Ready Golf with a few examples

and would encourage players to adopt this philosophy where practical.

We have also included a page discussing 3 or 4 Ball Formats.

The first Gents Handicap Medal is the Archie Williams on Sat 25th March and we

propose that it will be 3 Balls up to 10.52am and 4 Balls from 11.00am.

This will be the preferred format for the rest of the year apart from the

Seeded draws for Qualifying Competitions which will remain 3 Ball.

To Comply with the new Congu guidelines we have had to change our

Stroke indices which will be included in the new batch of score cards

and in time for all the Summer Matchplay Competitions.

There a variety of issues that need addressed however one of the main

changes are that if there was a 10 stroke handicap difference you cannot

get shots 3 Holes in a row, our current set up, gives 6 shots in 7 holes

from Hole 6 to hole 12 so a recalculation is required.

I will be posting all of this in the coming days and I will start with

the new Stroke Index compared with the old one.
