Handicap System News - 05/03/2017

The handicap system has reopened for the 2017 season with a number of new features and changes based on the outcome of the recent annual convention. The major changes are:

  • Matchplay competition results can now be entered into the handicap system - This is mandatory for open events and optional for club events, except for the club matchplay championship which is now mandatory.
  • Team competition results (doubles and three person team) can now be entered into the handicap system - This is mandatory for open events and optional for club events.
  • Maximum handicap limits of -15 for gents and -18 for ladies have now been removed
We will be turning on the management of matchplay and team events in the coming weeks, an announcement on their go live date will be provided early in the week of March 13th.

There have also been some improvements to the tools available for entering strokeplay events, you no longer need to pick the date of each return where your competition runs over a single day and you will be asked to review the overall state of the competition before closing it from now on, this is to reduce errors in data entry and to increase the accuracy of competition returns.

Further information on returning team events and matchplay competitions has been added to the Frequently Asked Questions page, you can access it from the menu at the top of this screen by clicking on the link.

Please forward all queries to handicapsystemsupport@ppui.ie or office@ppui.ie

Important Notice

Separate competitions should NOT be generated for Ladies and Gents, for handicapping purposes only one competition should be created and all players entered into that single event. Prizes and leaderboards are separate to the handicap system and remain the responsibility of the organising committee and separate Ladies and Gents competitions can be run for those purposes in reality.

If you have already created separate competitions for Ladies and Gents, please delete and recreate them as single competitions.
