18 Hole Women’s Weekly News – 15 January 2019

Topic: Womens Golf

 

Opening Day Competition (Tuesday 12 February)

Normally we would have our opening day on the first Tuesday in February, but with Waitangi Day falling where it is we are having our Opening Day competition and lunch a week later on Tuesday 12 February. This year we are playing 18 holes, with a shot gun start at 8:00 am. This will be followed by a plated lunch ($10.00 each, payable on the day) in the Tui Lounge.

The week prior our Women’s reserved tee-times on Tuesday and Thursday will be back in place. Tuesday 5 and Thursday 7 February will be both be optional stableford scrambles.

 

New Golf Rules

The DotGolf website has a series of short videos which explain the major changes in an easy to follow format. You can find this in the section “2019 Rules” under the “About the Game” tab.

 

Bronze Divisions

The Bronze divisions for 2019 have been revised, so that we have more even numbers competing in each division. This year, Bronze 1 is 18.5 to 23.5, Bronze 2 is 23.6 to 27.9 and Bronze 3 is 28.0 to 40.4.

(For those of you who don’t know, it is the LGU rules set by NZG that require us to have three Bronze divisions with approximately equal numbers competing in each division.)

 

Stroke Holes

We are changing the stroke hole allocations to follow the system recommended by New Zealand Golf, and this will come in to effect at the next handicap rollover on 23 January.

This system recognizes the importance of stroke hole allocation for match play and ensures that strokes given/received are evenly spread over the 18 holes. This will result in some significant changes as the emphasis is no longer just on the relative difficulty of each hole. However, surprising as it may at first seem, you will find that these changes have virtually no influence on your overall stableford score and therefore handicap adjustment.
