Men’s Winter Competitions – points deduction system – 2023-24

For the duration of the winter competitions, a points deduction system for prize winners will operate. 

Each competition will have an overall winner and depending on the number playing, a number of sectional prizes may also be awarded.

Sectional winners. If the number of entries is sufficient then a competition may be split into either 2 or 3 sections. The cutoff point for each section will vary slightly from week to week depending on the number of entries and handicap profile of the total field. 1 Prize will be awarded to the winner of each section. 

Penalties: The overall winner will incur a 2 shot penalty and each of the sectional winners will incur 1 penalty point. All penalties are cumulative and will remain in force until we revert to 18 competitions in the Spring.

Handicapping System

Winter Conditions.

Players play off 95% of their course handicap. 

Penalties are applied as follows: Winner of each weekly Prize category receives 2 penalty points
The remaining prize winners in each weekly competition receives 1 penalty point

Penalties will apply only for the winter months. 

Summer Conditions.

A qualifying Seniors competition will be set up on the computer. As is the case with the weekend club competition, each player will play off 95% of their Course Handicap. All scores will be uploaded to the WHS (World Handicapping System) at the end of each competition.

Since a player’s Handicap Index may reduce or increase based on the scores returned, no additional penalties will applied during the summer months.
