Hawley Golf Society
We have now finished our 2017 season and planning is well underway to book courses for 2018;
details will be provide as soon as they are known.

The Hawley Golf Society was started almost 20 years ago by a group of people who used the Hawley Sports Centre; although we still retain the name, there is no longer any connection with Hawley Sports Centre. Numbers have fluctuated over the years with a number of members who joined when other golf societies closed (for example, Companions); we currently have over 25 names on our calling notices, with around a dozon playing at each event. New members are always welcome and if you are interested do please contact us (see the 'Contacts' tab).


Venues and Dates

As usual, we played eight venues this year (2017) between March and October. The venues were Alresford, Basingstoke, Chobham, Clandon Regis, Corhampton, Cowdray Park, Mill Ride & Weybrook Park.

Events

The ‘standard’ day consisted of a bacon bap/coffee start before a morning 18-hole round, then a light lunch followed by an 18-hole afternoon round and a two-course dinner in the evening; typical cost for this package was around £75. Some members played only the afternoon round followed by dinner, which is a very acceptable option if two rounds is not possible (costing about £45).

The cost included prizes for the winner and runner-up for both morning and afternoon rounds plus prizes for nearest-the-pin and nearest-the pin-in-2 holes during both the AM and PM rounds. At any event, no one can be awarded more than one winner/runner-up prize; therefore, the winner in the morning round cannot be a winner or runner-up in the afternoon round, however winning in the afternoon will take precedence over being the runner-up in the morning round.

Handicaps

The handicap for each individual's first event of the year was their current official English Golf handicap; players without an England Golf handicap started with their 'best (honest) estimate' of their handicap. Anyone winning an event had their 'starting handicap' reduced by two and anyone being an event runner-up had their 'starting handicap' reduced by one. This process continued to the end of the society season other than if a player's England Golf handicap dropped below their then current society handicap, at which time their new England Golf handicap was applied.

Buggies

To make it easier for players having difficulty playing two rounds in a day (or maybe even one round), we have tried to select courses that have buggies to hire; whenever possible, buggies were shared to make it more cost effective.

Hawley Golf Society Events for 2017

Events for 2017 included our regular venues, at Alresford, Basingstoke, Corhampton, Cowdray Park, Chobham and Weybrook Park; we also returned to Clandon Regis, which we enjoyed in 2016 for the first time and, in addition, this year, we played at Mill Ride for the first time.

Order of Merit Table for 2017

The Order of Merit award is made at the end of the year to the player with the highest score based on the sum of their best eight results, with AM and PM rounds being counted as separate results. After each morning and afternoon round, points are awarded for coming first (10), second (9), third (8) etc. down to one point for coming tenth, based on stableford scores; two or more players with the same stableford score will be awarded the same number of points, regardless of the actual order that may have been based on the count-back procedure.

The table below gives the results after the frst event of the season; the last column of the table will show the sum of the best eight results

Hawley Golf Society Handicaps for 2017

The starting handicap for the 2017 season was either a player's official CONGU Handicap or, for anyone without a CONGU handicap, a handicap set by the committee. During the year, anyone who wins an event will have their handicap cut by two and anyone coming as runner-up in an event will have their handicap cut by one (regardless of their CONGU handicap); however, if a player's CONGU handicap drops below the current society handicap, at any time during the season, this will then become the players new society handcap.

Handicap changes following our last event are shown in bold; CONGU handicap changes since the end of our 2016 season are shown starred.
