If interested, our handicap system is outlined below.
As those of us who live here know, it can be difficult to obtain and maintain a golf handicap in Thailand; none of our local courses have a club associated with them, which is the usual method of getting a handicap. To help resolve this situation Khon Kaen Golf maintains a handicap system for those who play in our events on a regular basis and have no recourse to any other handicapping system.
The system we use is based on the CONGU system as used in the UK; the full CONGU system can only be used if you are an officially affiliated club, which of course we are not. Since we started in early 2010 our handicaps, although not official, have been shown to be a fair reflection of a golfer’s ability and have stood up well when compared to the handicaps declared by visiting golfers. Other systems for maintaining handicaps are available, notably the American (USGA) or the European (EGA) systems; however both of these require a Course Rating and a Slope Rating, as these are not available for any of our courses we will keep to our interpretation of the CONGU system for the present time. Should anyone want further information on our handicapping system they are welcome to contact us.
We now have a new facility whereby we can keep and show a record of the competition scores. You can view the scores from a competition by clicking on the appropriate link on the 'Recent Results' or 'Results 2013' (or any subsequent year). This will display the appropriate pdf file in a new window.
We will be keeping details for 'handicap qualifying' competitions only.
The information is held as a spreadsheet.
