text of note circulated to members on 6April 2019

Dear Members,

Many of you will recall that during November last year we arranged for the Shey Copse Course to be measured by England Golf. This was done for the purpose of gaining approval for members to use the course to gain a CONGU (Congress of National Golf Unions) handicap. This enables the handicap holder to compete both in Club competitions at Hoebridge, and in open competitions at other clubs, where the possession of a CONGU handicap is a requirement for entry.

I am please to advise you that the course has now been approved for such use.
It is therefore now possible for members to submit scores achieved over the measured course to both obtain a CONGU handicap, and as a qualifying Supplementary Score, submitted subject to the usual requirements, which are posted both on the Club Notice Board and on the Club Web Site.

The measured course has been marked using square stone markers. These are painted half red and half yellow, denoting that both the Men’s and Ladies courses commence at the same point, and members should tee off adjacent to these markers.

I must stress that these new arrangements do not affect in any way the current competitions run on the Shey Copse Course, and there is no change to the manner in which the current Shey Copse handicap system operates.

However, if you have any queries regarding any of the above please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Best regards,

Andy Richardson
Handicap Secretary
