  • CONGU UNIFIED HANDICAPPING SYSTEM

    Obtaining and Retaining a CONGU Handicap

    Obtaining an Initial CONGU Handicap
    To obtain an initial CONGU Handicap, Gents are required to return three signed scorecards, one of which must relate to play in a Club Competition under medal play conditions. The other two cards can be submitted from playing from the yellow tee markers, put signed card through letterbox to Club Secretary's office.

    A handicap may be allotted up to a limit of 54. Handicaps allotted at or below the existing maxima of 28.0 will be allotted as CONGU Handicaps and will be annotated with a ‘c’ Competition Handicap Status. Handicaps allotted higher than the existing maxima of 28.0 will be allotted as CONGU Club Handicaps and will not be annotated with a ‘c’ Competition Handicap Status.

    Retaining a CONGU Handicap
    To retain their Competition Handicap (Handicap annotated with a ‘c’) in subsequent years, a Member shall return three qualifying scores per golf season.

    CONGU Club Handicap
    Gents who have been allotted a CONGU Club Handicap of between 29 and 54 are allowed to enter club competitions but only insofar as for the reduction of their CONGU Club Handicap to the level of a CONGU Handicap i.e. Handicap annotated with a Competition ‘c’. They will not be eligible to win a competition until they have achieved the level of a Competition Handicap (28 and below).
