HANDICAP ADVISOR NOTES - JANUARY 2023
Following our WHS Presentation in January, Martin Olive (SGU) & I have been looking at the Penalty Score and Deleted Score Intent reports for last year for all clubs.
Some of the results were shocking and I think shows a need for an education at club level about General Play scores.
It also showed us that some clubs do not have a Club Handicap Committee or access to the WHS Platform is restricted to just one or two people. So that is our challenge for 2023.
Key points about General Play scores -
If you do not put the score in an auto penalty will be applied, the sum of your course handicap + the course rating of the tees you played from. Note, we can see these too!!
The clubs handicap committee, which should be a minimum of 3 people mostly members, should be watching these reports and contacting players.
