In late 2008 CONGU® approved a change to the definition of 'Member' within the CONGU® UHS 2008-2011. A new associated Decision and FAQ were also approved at this time.
The following updates have been made to the CONGU UHS, effective 1 January 2011:
Players in all handicap categories, including Category 1, will be eligible to submit Supplementary Scores from 1 January 2011.
Players in all handicap categories are eligible to submit supplementary scores irrespective of how many qualifying scores they submitted in the preceding period between Annual Handicap Reviews. The restriction of six or fewer scores submitted the previous year to be eligible to submit Supplementary Scores will be removed from 1 January 2011.
Nine-Hole Qualifying Competitions:
The restriction on the number of Nine-Hole Qualifying Competitions that can be run by any recognised section of a golf club will be removed, with effect from 1 January 2011. Clubs can, at their discretion, then allow recognised sections to now run more than 10 Nine-Hole Qualifying Competitions should they so wish.
2. Stableford Competitions:
Rather than deducting points that have been achieved by players with the higher target points score to ‘play to handicap’, the differential between targets will now be added to players scores who are playing to the lower target. This adjustment is for competition result purposes only.
For those clubs subscribing to handicapping software from a CONGU® Licensed software provider, these changes should be incorporated within your 2011 software updates.
Full details of these revisions are contained in the Related Documents section for your information and future reference. We would recommend that these updates are appended to your CONGU® UHS 2008-2011 Manual for your Handicap Administrators reference.
