EGU and EWGA handicapping and amateur status seminars

2.21am 17th August 2011 - Management Topics - This story was updated on Wednesday, August 17th, 2011

The English Golf Union (EGU) and English Women’s Golf Association (EWGA) will hold Handicap and Amateur Status seminars up and down the country throughout October, November and December to help highlight the changes to be brought in by 2012 CONGU Unified Handicapping System and new Amateur Status code.

The series of seminars will include important information for clubs on the alterations to the CONGU Unified Handicapping System (UHS); incorporating changes to general play, supplementary scores and the Central Database of Handicaps (CDH). The sessions will also cover the new Amateur Status code effective 2012.

James Crampton, EGU Handicap and SSS Manager highlights the importance of these seminars: “The seminars will be particularly beneficial to club managers and both men’s and ladies competition and handicapping secretaries as there are changes which will affect both the running of the club and the way the amateur game is played. All clubs will need to be aware of this information as of its implementation at the beginning of 2012.”

The cost of attending the seminar is £10 per delegate or £25 per club with a maximum of three representatives. For all dates, venues and to register on the Handicap and Amateur Status seminars visit the EGU website.
