I'm part of an amateur Club run by it's members, I've been nominated for the new Handicap Secretary so have been brushing up on the handicapping rules as I'm sure ours are a bit outdated. Our club has a course of SSS 67, Par 67 with about 40 playing members, we have one or two competitions per month, but it's mainly just friendly winner of a hole wins a ball from the rest of the players type of stuff.
Back to the Handicaps, our maximum for Men is 24, but from what I understand it is 28 and 36 for women (which we already have). Has maximum Handicapping ever been 24? The Handicap scoring follows the CONGU system but I'm just trying to figure out where the 24 for Men might have come from?
