Handicaps of current members of the Sparta Golf Society

Updated to June 2021 (latest updates in Red)

With the change from club handicaps to Official Handicap Indexes under the World Handicapping System (WHS),
indexes will be checked and updated before each event.
Even if you are not a club member, you can still get an official handicap index.

As agreed at the AGM 2020, the following handicapping system was adopted by the Society:

As agreed in Committee (April 2021), those who have a World Handicap System index will play off that handicap at all society meetings (rounded to the nearest full point).
The following therefore only applies to those who do not have a WHS handicap index:

Scores of 24pts or less - h'cap increased by 1
Scores from 25 to 32pts - h'cap increased by 0.5
Scores from 33to 37pts - h'cap unchanged
Scores from 38 to 40 pts - h'cap reduced by 0.5
Scores of 41pts or more - h'cap reduced by 1

Where handicaps have changed, previous handicaps are in brackets

Members winning a stableford singles competition (excluding 36-hole aggregate competitions) will receive a 0.6 handicap reduction in addition to any change accorded by the guidelines above. 
Half point handicaps shall be rounded up.

Where new members do not have a club handicap, they should indicate their average gross score and the Committee will decide on a suitable handicap which will not be higher than 20 for men or 28 for ladies. 
This may be revised outside the above rules after two Society rounds. Where necessary the handicapping committee may make other adjustments as it thinks fit.
