The club held a forum to showcase some ot the main changes and we have reproduced the presentation from the evening below.

There is also a link to a document on the forthcoming world handicap system and answers to some of the more common questions on how this will affect your golf and handicap.

We are hoping to add to this page in the near future to keep you up to date with the rule changes.
