What we've been up to...
Monday 1st January 2018
Delighted to announce that intelligentgolf has seamlessly enabled all the required changes for the handicapping system for 2018.
Firstly, happy new year! I hope 2018 proves to be a wonderful year for you all.
The summary list of changes doesn't look like much, but there are some real fundamental changes in there. The relaxation of the maximum handicap is probably the greatest update, now essentially allowing handicaps to 54 for men and ladies. This has a number of knock ons in our system, especially around edge cases such as annual review adjustments and GPA.
One of the key balances we have tried to maintain is that handicaps are still calculated sequentially, and will obey the rules in effect at the time. For example, despite a number of missed buffer rounds in December, a 28.0 handicapper will only be increased above 28.0 when they play a round from the 1st of January 2018. Changes to earlier competitions should have no bearing on this.
Similarly, a junior Club handicap won't have the other changes made to it until they play after the 1st January either. Significantly, this means their previous reductions of 0.5 per shot will stand, replaced by 0.6 per shot in 2018.
