TROLLEY USAGE IN WINTER - ADVISORY NOTICE
All golfers at Cumberwell Park have the freedom to decide whether to use a carry bag, pull trolley or power trolley. The use of any type of trolley, in particular those fit with smooth wheels, during winter months leads to an increase in muddy conditions. The added footprint of the trolleys leads to a number of unpleasant muddy areas, particularly along heavy trafficked routes. The green staff install rope off areas and signage in an attempt to manage the wear but this is not practical in all situations.
It is widely accepted that a reduction in trolley usage would reduce the problem of muddy areas and improve playability. Trolley usage has risen significantly in the past few years as less people favour a carry bag. The club are suggesting those that are able to use a carry bag, do so through the winter months. The result of this would enable wear to be spread and avoid tracking around green edges that a trolley creates. For those unable to use a carry bag, it is suggested "hedgehog" style wheels are used on pull trolleys or power trolleys.

ANNUAL HANDICAP REVIEW HAS BEEN DONE
The handicap committee met last week and went through the annual review of all handicaps in line with CONGU, a process that is undertaken by every golf club this time of year, some handicaps will have increased and some would have had a reduction.
The Annual Review is an important element of the Unified Handicapping System (UHS). It is the process by which the Handicap Committee reviews, and adjusts as necessary, the handicaps of all Members to ensure that, as far as practicable, they reflect current playing ability.
It should be stressed that uniformity in handicapping can only be achieved by all Handicap Committees applying the same principles in a uniform and equitable manner. These principles apply just as much to the manner in which the Annual Review is conducted and General Play adjustments applied, as to the routine administration of handicapping related to returns in Qualifying Competitions.
If your handicap has changed you should have received a notification via email of your handicap change, but please do feel free to check with us your handicap before you next play.
