Please note that your handicaps for this CGA competition, where applicable has been adjusted according to the newly adopted handicapping rules.

 

The following % adjustments will apply to your official handicap if you score 35 pts or more.

 

   35 pts  -  10%       38 pts  -  25%        41 pts  -  40%        44 pts  -  55%       47 pts  -  70%

   36 pts  -  15%       39 pts  -  30%        42 pts  -  45%        45 pts  -  60%       48 pts  -  75%

   37 pts  -  20%       40 pts  -  35%        43 pts  -  50%        46 pts  -  65%       49 pts  -  80%

 

Handicap adjustments will be calculated to 1 decimal and rounded up to next integer if decimal is 0.5 or more. Decimals of 0.4 or less will be dropped and the remaining integer will apply. ( Eg - 1.  15 hcp shoots 35 pts  -  10% of 15 = 1.5 rounding to 2  -  new handicap 13.  Eg  -  2. 14 hcp shoots 35 pts  -  10% of 14 = 1.4 rounding to 1  -  new handicap 13 )

 

If your handicap is already a CGA adjusted one, your latest 2 scores will be used to determine your handicap.

   

A) If the sum of your last 2 scores is 70 or more, your CGA handicap remains

B) If the sum of your last 2 scores is less than 70, your handicap will revert back to your latest official handicap

 

To illustrate, consider

 A)    Player with Official handicap of 10 with the scores ERPM  -  34 pts, Benoni CC  -  38 pts  Modderfontein  -  34 pts

        After ERPM, no change to handicap

        After Benoni CC, new CGA handicap is 7 being 25% of 10 = 2.5 rounding to 3

        After Modderfontein, handicap still 7 being 38 + 34 = 72 which is 70 or more

 

B)    Player with Official handicap of 10 with the scores ERPM  -  34 pts, Benoni CC  -  38 pts  Modderfontein  -  30 pts

        After ERPM, no change to handicap

        After Benoni CC, new CGA handicap is 7 being 25% of 10 = 2.5 rounding to 3

        After Modderfontein, handicap back to Official handicap of 10 being 38 + 30 = 68 which is less than 70

 

C)    Player with Official handicap of 10 with the scores ERPM  -  34 pts, Benoni CC  -  38 pts  Modderfontein  -  32 pts

        After ERPM, no change to handicap

        After Benoni CC, new CGA handicap is 7 being 25% of 10 = 2.5 rounding to 3

        After Modderfontein, handicap still 7 being 38 + 32 = 70 which is 70 or more

Slow play remains a contentious issue. Any suggestions to eradicate this problem is most welcome.

 The committee wants to improve its performance as far as the running of the golf competitions is concerned. We are insisting on 2 independent score cards from each 4-ball.  If any golfer is unsure of the workings of the stableford points, they must at least enter the strokes taken by each golfer to complete a hole. The scorers for the day will assist with the allocation of the stableford points.

The committee resolved to adjust the handicaps of golfers who shoot 35 or more stableford pts in the CGA comps. The new handicap rule has started with the ERPM competition. ( 7 June 2017 )   

The committee welcomes any suggestions or proposals that lends to a more enjoyable competitive environment. 

CGA golf shirt is available from Chan Ho at the cost of R220.

Annual subs are R150 for the year.

 

 

  

 

CGA Ruling regarding incomplete Grandprix comps due to bad light, rain and/or lightning:

 

·  If 70% of the golfers have completed their rounds, the competition is deemed to have been played and prizes will be awarded

· For golfers unable to complete their round, the average pts per hole for the completed holes will be calculated. This average times the no. of uncompleted holes will give the pts to be added to the completed holes score to get a final result. (Rounding will be down to the integer value ie 2.6 will be 2)

·  The results of any incomplete competitions are not  carried forward to the Grandprix competition.    

 

 

 

 

Beginner golfers without an official handicap playing in a CGA comp must play off an 18 handicap (Men) and 24 handicap (Ladies). 

 

Golfers returning to the game after a long period of absence must still play off their last official handicap.

Prize Winners of 2016/17 season

 

To speed up play, take note: 1. On the greens, whoever putts first should putt out before the next player putts.

2. On the tee-box or fairway, whoever is ready to play a shot should do so without having to wait your “turn” provided that the fairway or green has been cleared. 4 and a half hours to complete 18 holes is the target! Please give it your best shot.
