You will NOT have to book a tee time on BRS, members will go out in threes in the

Your starting Seniors’ winter playing handicap will be your course handicap on Thursday 28 th
For winter competitions your playing handicap will be 100% of your course handicap up to a
maximum of 54.
If your handicap is an even number your handicap for the front or back nine will be half your
course handicap. If your handicap is an odd number your front nine handicap will be one
more than your back nine handicap.
Use your course handicap and the stroke index on your card to determine where you get
Course handicap reductions will generally operate on the following basis:
Total Points 1 or 2 above 18 (Handicap -1)
Total Points 3 or 4 above 18 (Handicap -2)
Total Points 5 or 6 above 18 (Handicap -3)
When the course changes to winter greens the course will be easier and so the slope rating
should go down, this means your course handicaps should also go down. To avoid having to
recalculate every ones course handicap when we have winter greens we will raise the
number of points required for a handicap adjustment.
Note: Handicaps will never go up.
Please check your seniors’ winter course handicap on the notice board at the Pro Shop prior
to starting your round.
