    Re: World Handicap System

    How do you and the people you play know your handicaps now? Where do you get the information from? Why should it change?
    Is it different after playing in a comp from putting a supplementary score?

    Re: World Handicapping System

    That's why different CSS calculations are done for away players. Familiarity with a course helps.

    But I have some doubts about your sample size ;)

    Re: World Handicapping System

    The USGA Course Rating and Slope together with the averaging system should deal with that.
    Averaging on it own can produce a difference of 2/3 stokes vs the CONGU ratchet

    Re: County Card Discount

    It is at the County's discretion.

    Incidentally, I think only Norfolk and Suffolk are not in the national scheme.

    Remember, so called casual rounds will have to be 'attested' to count. Essentially as supplementary scores.
    One would expect (hope) that handicap secs/committees will be monitoring non comp scores....

    Either ........ or .............

    Doesn't sound like grey to me. More like black and white.

    However, the Local Rule is on their hard card which they were given before they started.

    Re: World Handicap System

    I think you have mixed up Course Rating and Slope.
    Course Rating is the direct equivalent of SSS in CONGU using the USGA rating method.

    Slope Ratings range from 55 to 155, with the average being...

    Presumably the competition is played off scratch.

    I cant see a provision for overseas scores to be returned in European countries in the EGA book
