Men’s and Ladies’ Competition Grading Change

The new world handicapping system was implemented on Thursday 30 January 2020.

The Match Committee has made a decision to implement a new grading system from this date for all men’s and ladies’ competitions, excluding all Monthly Medals, Major Events and Honour Board Events where traditional grading will continue to be used.

The new grading system will be a sliding grade system. This means that the competition splits will change from day to day depending on the field size per the below example:

Men’s competition with 104 players
A grade – 35 players with the lowest handicaps
B grade – 35 players with the next lowest handicaps
C grade – 34 players with the highest handicaps

The split may change slightly if there are several golfers on the same handicap that are right on the grade split.

The Golf Services staff will write the daily grade split on the results sheet.

If you have any questions regarding this matter, please email or phone Ryan Gailey on 07 5699 9000.
