2022-2023 Handicap Summary

*Updated as of 25/11/2022

League Handicap Information

This section is to inform everyone of the handicaps that each player will start with at the beginning of each season, along with any adjustments that may be done upon each players performance. The handicap committee meets on a regular basis to review each players handicap based upon their results.


New Registrations

All new players should have a suggested handicap proposed by an existing member of the Calder Valley League. There no longer is a default handicap of +15. If a player who has previously registered but isn't currently, must declare their previous handicap.


Unregistered Players

Any player that is not registered to play in the league must play of "Scratch" until they are registered, unless they declare a lower handicap (e.g. minus 10). This handicap will be reviewed after 6 results.


Starred (*) Players

They are continuously reviewed and can be adjusted at anytime, not necessary after each tranche of 6 matches. It also works both ways, not only if a player is winning a higher percentage than losing but also if a player is losing a higher percentage than winning. The handicap committee will then propose a handicap adjustment and the committee will vote on the change if necessary.


Other Players

This means that a player has reached a certain standard of play where they predominately win the same or only slight win more than they lose. They will be reviewed at the beginning of every new season.
