MEMO: Delay of Increase to Maximum Australian Men’s Handicap

Following the recent changes to the Board of Golf Australia, the Handicapping & Course Rating Committee has decided to defer decisions on any further adjustments to the Australian Handicapping & Course Rating Systems until after the Committee&aposs next meeting in April. As a result, a decision re increasing the maximum Australian Men&aposs Handicap will be deferred until this time. The April meeting will also include a wide-ranging discussion on the pathway for the development of the Australian Handicapping & Course Rating Systems. We look forward to providing a further update following the April meeting. Please let me know if you have any queries.
