WHS Handicap counting changes in place from 1st April.

Sheets have been updated in clubhouse to reflect handicaps – Sheets show 18 Hole Course Handicap/ Playing handicap for comps. Also there is a 9 Hole version.

This includes the Course rating less the par of the course so for Clane is 65.8 – 68  = -2.2  -> you will notice in competition you will be playing off a lower handicap. Also competitions played off 95% so will be interesting to see results.

Smartgolf will automatically adjust handicap. After you enter a comp (and adjust to correct tee time) – open the Live scoring and check your card which will display handicap index, course handicap and playing handicap which should be put on physical card. You may find this easier than figuring our across the various handicap sheet on the board.
