NEW STROKE INDEX

The CONGU recommendations are clear that “difficulty in relation to par is only one of several factors to be taken into account when selecting stroke indexes”.  Some of the other factors include:

  • the even spread of strokes over the 18 holes for all handicap differences;
  • ensuring a player receiving 10 strokes doesn’t get strokes on three consecutive holes;
  • that none of the first 8 strokes be allocated to the first or last hole
  • that SI 9/10/11/12 should be allocated to holes 1/9/10/18 in any order

For anyone who wants to see the full guidelines, they are on the CONGU website  under Appendix I of the Unified Handicapping System.
