Golf handicaps 2019

 

 

Handicap system (approved at 2018 AGM)

 

The purpose of the handicap system in Leixlip GAA Golf Society is to attempt to give every member a reasonable chance of winning a prize. In particular it is designed to reduce the chances of any member winning multiple prizes.

 

At the start of the year 2019 all current Society handicaps will be rounded to the nearest whole number. All existing members will then receive a bonus of 5 Stableford points added to their 2019 starting Society Handicaps.

 

Handicap Cuts for prize winners (usual outings including the Presidents):

Prize

1st overall

1st  Class

9’s and subsequent prizes (excluding nearest pin, longest drive, etc) Cuts 3 1 No cuts but no shots back

 

Captains Outing Prize 1st overall 2nd 3rd  1st Class 9’s & other Class prizes only Cuts 4 2 1 1 No cuts but no shots back

 

 Any player who wins 1st prize overall twice (or more) in a calendar year will be cut an additional 1 shot.  Every player who plays and returns a card and does not win a prize will receive 1 shot (or bonus point) back up to a maximum handicap of 36    When a player reaches the maximum handicap of 36 they will then receive Bonus points as appropriate. Subsequent cuts (for winning) will be off the bonus points until the player reaches a h/c of 36.  Any player who wins any prize, except 1st overall, with a score of less than 30 points will not be cut but will not receive a shot (or bonus point) back.  The week-end away competition will not be included as a normal outing i.e. there will be no cuts or shots/bonus points back.  The Executive Committee will review the operation of the handicaps system during the year and are authorised to correct any unforeseen anomalies. In addition they can adjust handicaps as they consider necessary, for example, if a player returns an exceptionally high score their h/c may be cut (in additional to any cuts received for winning a prize) or if a player receives 5 or more shots/bonus points consecutively their handicap might be increased.

Bonus Points: When deciding on Ties bonus points will be allocated as follows:  Back 9 score: 1/2 of the bonus points (exact to 1 decimal point)  Back 6 score: 1/3  of the bonus points (exact to 1 decimal point)  Back 3 score: 1/6 of the bonus points (exact to 1 decimal point)  Back 1 score: 1/18 of the bonus points (exact to 1 decimal point). e.g.  Player a. score 36 SF points off h/c of 18 Player b. score 34 SF points off h/c 36 + 2 bonus points = Score 36 SF points. Back Nine:  Player a: 17 SF points  Player b: 17 SF points + 1 bonus point = 18 SF points so Player b. wins.

 

Prizes: If 12 or less members playing on the day:  1st Overall and 1st Class 1 and 1st Class 2. Class 1 and 2 will be determined on the day so as to try and give equal numbers in each class.
