Stroke Index Changes
As part of the new WHS, the R&A and USGA advise using the stroke indices (SI) provided, which is based off the information used to calculate the courses slope rating.
Following discussion and approval from both the Ladies committee and the Gents Handicap committee your Golf and Social committee has decided to adopt these for both sections to ensure that both the WHS handicap calculations and our own club competitions use the same Stroke Index.
The new yardages and stroke indices have been uploaded on to the SG App. Tee signage has been ordered and the current tee signs will be updated and repositioned by March. Score cards are in the process of being ordered and will be with us shortly.
Match-play competitions having started under the old SI will continue with those through to completion.
General Play Scores and qualifying competitions for handicap are now under the new SI.
For anyone looking to do a general play score (GPS) without using the App, you can get a scorecard from the pro shop with adjusted SI on them. Please remember that anyone doing a GPS without the App must register in the pro shop before going out or your score will not count. GPS are permitted with the use of mats but you may not move your ball to the side.
