Just a reminder to all players that the new ‘slope’ handicap system is now active and there may be some slight changes to some handicaps.
Under the slope system, a golfer’s playing handicap on any given day will be determined according to the difficulty of the tees or course to be played.
Golf Australia believes this will be fairer than the former ‘one handicap fits all courses’ method.
For more information on the new handicap system visit www.golf.org.au or collect a brochure from the Pro Shop.
The Thursday open competition is a walk up start for any player wanting an extra competition game and this Saturday is a single Stableford event.
