Handicaps – Exceptional Score Reductions
There have been a number of queries lately in relation to the “Exceptional Scoring Reduction” (ESR) and how it applies to your handicap. Essentially the ESR means that your handicap can be reduced if you post two good scores (4 shots or more better than CSS) within a certain period of time. The closer together you have your good scores, the more you will get cut. The ESR is supposed to cater for golfers whose scores show that they are improving quickly and adjusts their handicaps accordingly. For more information please look at the following article on the website: http://www.newrossgolfclub.ie/members/mens-section/exceptional-scoring-reductions/
The club sends out a lot of its information out via email as it is both cost effective and timely. If you know of anyone who is not receiving the weekly and other emails please let them know that they can get their email address updated by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or contacting one of the bar staff.
