Handicaps

Competition/ Non-Competition Handicaps
England Golf will join with the Scottish and Welsh Unions in using the “c” notation to denote a competition handicap and the “i” notation will no longer appear.  Any non-competition handicap will have no notation after it.
A single date for the activation of “c” handicaps in each year has been agreed by England, Scotland and Wales.  This will be 1 March 2014 and 1 March in subsequent years, separating this process from the Annual Handicap Review.
Ireland continues with its discretion not to introduce “competition/non-competition handicaps”.
Supplementary Scores
A restriction is being placed on the use of supplementary scores by Category 1 players and any player attaining Category 1. These players will only be permitted to submit supplementary scores to the extent that such scores are necessary to retain a competition handicap. Such scores will only be allowed to be submitted between 1st September in one year and 28th February in the following year. Any Category 2 player who has submitted supplementary scores prior to attaining Category 1 status will only be permitted to submit further supplementary scores in the period if he/she requires them to retain a competition handicap even where they have returned to Category 2 status.
There has been some discussion over the definition of a week in respect of the submission of Supplementary Scores. For the purposes of clarity we wish to define a week as being from Monday to Sunday but please note that clubs do have the discretion to permit players to submit more than one Supplementary Score in a week

Hallam Cup 2012

After a very lengthy delay for one reason after another the 2012 Hallam Cup Final has been played.  Congratulations to both Alex Clarricoates and Emma Sheffield for putting on an exhibition of great golf.  2 down after 2 Emma fought back well to level the scores by the 6th.  A barrage of birdies followed and Alex went 2 up by the 12th; with another birdie on the 17th he completed a 3 & 1 victory.
