THE CHARBONNEAU VILLAGER 3 January 2020 The Niners By JUDY CAIN Volunteers needed for committees Welcome all new and returning golfers. Are we ready for 2020? The new year brings changes and in order to CAIN ready ourselves for exciting golf we want to be prepared. News items ■ Sign-ups for various committees are needed. Please consider volunteering. Your time and efforts are greatly appreciated. One committee in need of volunteers is the Scramble Committee. Sign-up sheets will be available at our opening meeting April 7. ■ Correction: Regarding the number of golfers needed to play in our Tuesday competition, it’s 12. Please refer to our Niners Handbook on page 8, second paragraph titled “Prizes.” ■ Rose Mills, our handicap coordinator, has advised us to review six changed items for 2020. We thank Rose for her continued help and support. She has volunteered hours of her time. A Sneak Peek — World Handicap System There are several items to keep in mind as we prepare for the new World Handicap System set to debut in 2020. Below is a sneak peek of what’s to come. 1) The minimum number of scores to establish a Handicap Index will be three 18-hole rounds made up of any combination of 9 or 18-hole scores. A new player establishing a Handicap Index will use PAR + 5 as their maximum score per hole. ■ Current system requires five 18-hole rounds (or 10 nine-hole scores combined) 2) For a full scoring record of 20 scores, the system will take the 8 lowest score differentials to calculate the Handicap Index. ■ Current system takes 10 lowest score differentials 3) When abnormal playing conditions cause scores to be unusually high or low on a given day, a Playing Conditions Calculation, or PCC, will adjust score differentials to better reflect the player’s actual performance. ■ Current system has no comparable adjustment 4) Net Double Bogey (or Double Bogey Plus) will be used when a player’s actual score or most likely score exceeds a maximum number derived using the following formula. All players, no matter their Course Handicap, will use Net Double Bogey: Net Double Bogey = Par + 2 +/- Handicap strokes received or given on a hole ■ Current system uses Equitable Stroke Control & can change according to the Course Handicap range in which the player falls 5) The Maximum Handicap Index for men and women will be 54.0. This will encourage more novice golfers to get a Handicap Index. ■ Current system has a max of 36.4 for men and 40.4 for women 6) Under the World Handicap System, a Handicap Index will update daily. This feature should encourage golfers to post their scores immediately following their round. ■ Current system updates Indexes on the 1st and 15th of each month Source: peek-world-handicap-system Jump in , the community is great. At the risk of exaggerating just a bit, even in winter there must be a million reasons to live here. Example number one is the heated, indoor pool. Example number two all the great opportunities you’ll find like our Aqua Aerobics program (part of a full calendar of activities) as well as fine dining, maintenance-free living & more. And if you need a little help, we offer assisted living services, too. We invite you to see it all for yourself. Year-round fun in our heated indoor pool.
