    One of the things we reckon on our committee is that it should make the annual review a shorter process. We change around 10 players a month. (membership 800+).

    If you are making that many adjustments throughout the year - I assume you are talking General Play Adjustments - I suspect that your Annual Review report when you run it will be quite short.

    What is the justification for these adjustments? Doesn't the UHS work?

    Why are you changing so many players on a monthly basis ? What report are you using to do any changes ?

    Re: Continuous Handicap Review

    10 players a month seems a bit OTT but as I have no sight of your reports I have to accept it.

    On the last report there were nearly 50 players on the list, weeded down to 15 for full review and 11 were increased. We have a lot of qualifying competitions available, 4 per week, so a lot of opportunity for players with too low a handicap to get 0.1 increases.

    On a personal basis I play around 30 qualifiers a year and my name appears on the list every month.

    I would add that the report is good at highlighting new handicapped players that have been give too low an initial handicap so some of the adjustments are for these players.

    We also have a very high percentage of senior golfers. eg our fortnightly Men's Seniors comps has over 90 players and not all on the reserve list get to play.

    If you are getting 7 x 0.1 every month your handicap needs a serious review.

    I'm not quite with this. If a player takes up all those opportunities, his handicap increases should better keep up with a decline in performance.

    One of my current concerns, however, is the player who submits only the three qualifying scores a year to maintain a competition handicap. That can mean that he is into a third season before the continuous handicap review is triggered. Of course the Annual Review should take care of this, but I see increases in scores which cannot be compensated for if you restrict increases to the CONGU notion of 2 strokes maximum.
