HANDICAP RULES

FGS Handicap Rules - V1.2, Issued, 4 December 2012

Handicap System


The Friday Golf Society uses the Spanish Golf Federation variation of the European Golf Association (EGA) handicapping system.

Maximum Handicaps

Maximum handicaps at present are 40.0 for men (slopes to 45 at Almerimar) and 40.0 for ladies (slopes to 47 at Almerimar).

Adjustment of handicaps based on competition results

Handicaps will be adjusted following any FGS competition at Almerimar where there is an official slope table for the course and the format of the competition enables scores to be recorded for handicap purposes (e.g. virtually all FGS competitions except those where players don´t play their own ball for the whole round - so not Texas Scramble or Texas Best 2 etc.).

General Play reviews

Every 3 months the handicap committee will recommend possible changes to players handicaps based on their performance. The recommendations will be reviewed by the full FGS management committee and if approved handicaps will be changed based on rule 25 (General Play) of the EGA Handicapping System.

The general rule is that if you have played a number of rounds with FGS in the last 3 months and never scored 30 or more points we will consider people for an increase in handicap.

Ad-hoc reviews

From time to time it may be appropriate for the handicap committee to recommend immediate reviews of a players handicap. For example a change for medical reasons etc. Such changes can be recommended at any time by the handicap committee but must be approved by the full FGS management committee.

The handicap committee

At present the handicap committee consists of Jacqui Mays, Alan Sly and John Woodhead.

SOFTWARE FOR MANAGING HANDICAPS

We are using handicapping software from golfshake.com. We will be entering scorecards for all stableford rounds people play in Friday Golf Society competitions.

You can see the current Friday Golf Society information here on the golfshake.com site.

Please note that at present the golfshake.com software does not meet all of our requirements (e.g. it does not handle EGA handicapping so it doesn´t handle sloped handicaps at present. Also, it doe not calculate handicap changes using the 2012 Spanish variation of the EGA handcapping system etc.). In the long term we will be working with the owners of the golfshake.com site to look to put in place a system that meets all our needs. For this reason people should ignore the handicaps on the golfshake site. We are only using the site to check the calculation of stableford points for players in competition, not for managing handicaps.
