Click on logo to view the re-launched Congu Website
The Council of National Golf Unions (CONGU®) was pleased to announce the re- launch of its Website yesterday. CONGU® represents the four Ladies & the four Men's National Unions/Associations for handicapping in Great Britain and Ireland.
The 1st February 2004 was a landmark day for golf handicapping with the introduction of the Unified Handicapping System (UHS) which, for the first time, used the same System for ladies and men's handicaps. The objective of the new Website is to promote greater understanding of the UHS and the principles behind it. This is achieved by publishing the System in full linked to Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's) and explanations of the more important aspects.
The more common criticisms of the UHS are answered by the analysis of actual competition data in a 'Myths and Misconceptions' section. The site contains items of interest for experienced administrators, golf club secretaries, club golfers and indeed for anyone who has an interest in golf handicapping.
By using the Website golfers should develop a greater understanding of the handicapping process and the reasons behind it, which in turn will enhance their enjoyment of competitive golf. It is intended that the site will become the focal point where administrators and golfers will find the definitive answers to their handicapping queries. The site will be further developed from now on with more FAQ's and other items of interest as the need arises.

However, Lesley Forsyth (Handicap Secretary) from Williamwood Golf Club has very kindly sent in an unofficial version of the 19.8 Stableford adjustment rule in a simplified form that perhaps you may understand a little bit better.

STABLEFORD POINT ALTERNATIVE PROCEDURE (CLAUSE 19.8)

This alternative procedure, CLAUSE 19.8, for short, has been introduced to REDUCE THE IMPACT OF EXTREMELY BAD SCORES ON A HOLE which are not truly representative of a player’s golf ability.

PLEASE NOTE:

bulletIt is ONLY used in STROKE PLAY QUALIFYING COMPETITIONS.
bulletIt is ONLY used for HANDICAP ADJUSTMENT.

By using CLAUSE 19.8 it is possible to apply the principles of a STABLEFORD CALCULATION to a STROKE PLAY COMPETITION WITHOUT HAVING TO CALCULATE THE POINTS AT EACH HOLE.

All holes completed

bulletONLY holes with a score in excess of NETT DOUBLE BOGEY are adjusted to a NETT DOUBLE BOGEY.

Holes with no score recorded

bulletA gross score that would result in a NETT DOUBLE BOGEY is entered at holes where no score is recorded

Remembering that the highest score at each hole when applying Clause 19.8
is a NETT DOUBLE BOGEY

NO lady can have MORE than a 9 at any hole.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

bulletIf you have no strokes allocated at a hole you cannot have MORE than
a 5 at a par 3, 6 at a par 4, 7 at a par 5.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

bulletIf you have 1 stroke allocated at a hole you cannot have MORE than a 6
at a par 3, 7 at a par 4, 8 at a par 5.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

bulletIf you have 2 strokes allocated at a hole you cannot have MORE than a 7
at a par 3, 8 at a par 4, 9 at a par 5.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

To make a Clause 19.8 adjustment yourself you need to know the following:

bullet CSS (If not known assume the CSS is the same as the SSS)
bullet Your Gross Score
bullet Par at each hole
bullet Stroke Index
bullet Your Exact Handicap (If not known subtract 0.5 from your playing handicap)

PLEASE NOTE:

bulletHaving made the calculation you can REDUCE your handicap yourself.

You CANNOT INCREASE your handicap yourself. This can ONLY be done at the Home Club.

bulletApril Medal at Ralston (12th April 2005)
bulletPlayers with Stableford Adjustments
bulletGillian McGinlay (only player affected in this round - she has cut her handicap)  --- Since the SSS 71 CSS 74 Reduction only

ESS = Equivalent Stableford Score
SA = Stableford Adjustment

The main column is the last column which tells you how many over or under the css your adj net score is. Whatever your Gross Score is in the competition the adjusted Gross score that your handicap secretary requires you to submit subtract the SA figure from your Gross score and you will have your Adjusted Gross Score. Gillian had a gross 80 (Handicap 6) and she had one bad hole so she subtracted the SA of 1 and she had an adjusted gross score of 79 -- and and adjusted net diff of -1 (one under the css)
