Relaxation of the Rules to Allow an Unlimited Number of Supplementary Score Submissions After January 2018
A second post on the CONGU Changes 2018
Supplementary Scores – Relaxation of the rules to allow an unlimited number of score submissions per year and removal of the restriction of one per week. However, the restriction on Category 1 players will remain in place.
Supplementary Scores were introduced by CONGU in 2008 as a means of providing players who, despite the fact that their Golf Clubs may be considered to be running sufficient qualifying competitions, find it difficult, for various legitimate reasons, to be able to return a sufficient number of qualifying scores between Annual Reviews in order to maintain a handicap that is a true reflection of their current ability.
However CONGU placed a limit on the number and frequency that Supplemantary Scores could be submitted in each calendar year; these are noted in Supplemetary Scores along with more details of Supplementary Scores and the procedures which players and clubs are recommended to follow in submitting and processing Supplementary Scores.
In relaxing the limits on Submitting Supplementary Scores CONGU have made it easier for players to submit more scores to their handicap record so that their current handicap is a true reflection of their ability.
