NEW RULINGS for the season 2018/19

 

The CGA committee has adopted the following handicapping rule for the new season. Any winner of a CGA competition must play their next CGA competition with a handicap of 2 minus the handicap with which they won the competition unless their official handicap has dropped below this number. In this case, the lower handicap will apply. Winners prizes will in future be restricted to the top three scores and as such, there will no longer be a prize for the best 20+ handicap score.

Next competition is at Jackal Creek golf course on the 19 August 2018  at 11.30am

 

Thereafter to Modderfontein golf course on 16 September 2018 at 11.30am  

 

 

 

 

Provisional tee-off times for CGA Jackal Creek golf competition posted 9pm 16th August 2018. Please check on weekend for possible changes.

Congratulations to Desmond Tsuen for winning the CGA Germiston golf competition with a good enough score of 35 pts on this normally tough course. Well done to the rest of the prize winners.

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. ( 7 May 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 24 handicap (Men) and 30 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.
