StartGolf Competition Results 20.05.18

Thank you to all of our StartGolfers who came out and played in yesterday’s competition. We had a brilliant turnout of 20 players to enjoy the glorious sunshine and dry golf course!

As always, the competition was played over 6 holes (19-24) on a best 5 from 6 scores basis (max 10 strokes). The players also battled it out for some bonus challenges in the form of a Longest Drive competition on hole 22 and Nearest to the Pin in 2 Shots on hole 25.

*In the event of a tie, a card playoff is conducted whereby the lowest score from the final hole will decide the winner. If it is still a tie then the previous hole will be used and so on until a winner is decided.

HANDICAP SYSTEM:

The results of each tournament will have an effect on playing handicap similar to the real CONGU Handicapping system. The StartGolf system is a more user-friendly and relaxed approach.

A score of 35 over the 5 holes (best 5 from 6) is considered PAR for the course which would give an average of 7 strokes per hole. Each stroke of more than 1 under the PAR of 35 will be multiplied by 0.5 and taken off the player’s handicap. Likewise, each stroke of more than 1 over the PAR of 35 will be multiplied by 0.5 and added on to the player’s handicap.

For instance….. Player A (hcp 0) scores 29, Player B (hcp 0) scores 35 and Player C (hcp 0) scores 45.

Player A has scored 6 strokes better than the PAR of 35. New handicap will be +3 (6 x 0.5 = 3) meaning next time they play 3 strokes will be added to their final score

Player B has scored the same as the PAR of 35. This players handicap will not be changed for next time

Player C has scored 10 strokes more than the PAR of 35. New handicap will be 5 (10 x 0.5 = 5) meaning next time they play 5 strokes will be deducted from their final score

Any new player will be automatically allocated a handicap of zero.
