Statistics supporting HCP changes

We are also pleased to advise that the changes to the handicap calculation, introduced by the SAGA in February 2012, have been effective.

The changes brought our calculation into line with international handicaps, and the scoring statistics of each handicap division are now comparable.

The overall handicap average for men has increased from 16.01 to 16.25, and for women from 25.26 to 25.59. See the tables below which reflect handicap performances in each division.
