Golf Australia is making some adjustments to the way our handicaps will be calculated from 30 January 2020. Golflink will be down for approximately 3 days around this period while GA handicaps are recalculated.
There are four major changes:
1) Players posting exceptionally low net scores will have their handicaps reduced by an additional amount;
2) Modifying the rules around the 5 stroke cap to include a "Soft cap" zone where players handicaps will increase more slowly;
3) Change to the Daily handicap formula to transfer the .93 adjustment from the "played to" to the daily handicap calculation;
4) Change to Daily handicap formula to adjust it for differences between scratch rating and par;
Full details are in the document below. More information is coming and I will publish this as it becomes available.
Feel free to talk to any of the committee members if you have any questions or concerns.
