All players please note the following Rule change for 2016: Clause 4.5(c) has been amended.
The maximum increase in handicap permitted in a calendar year will now be one shot above the lowest handicap achieved in that year. i.e. A player whose handicap starts at 10.4 may only increase to 11.4. If that player’s handicap is reduced at any time during the year (say from 10.4 to 10.0), the handicap may then only increase to 11.0.
Due to some problems with our new software a small number of handicaps have inadvertently been allowed to increase beyond this limit and we are currently working with the provider to rectify the same. In the interim we would ask players to be aware of your correct playing handicap, making the Handicapper aware if it has increased by more than 1 shot within the year.
Please forward or share this with anyone who may be affected on Thursday morning.
As a mark of respect for the funeral of our esteemed and respected past Captain, Mr. Charles Vernon, the gates of CAGC will be closed between 9.15 and 10.00 on Thursday the 9th June.
Mr. Charles Vernon R.I.P.
