Supplementary Scores (Extra Day Cards)
A Supplementary score (Extra Day Card) is a score in compliance with Clause 21 (CONGU Unified Handicapping System). A Supplementary Score allows most players to return cards for handicapping purposes outside of designated club competitions.
A Supplementary Score can be returned by a player (Handicap Category 2 – 6) over their home club and at other clubs in CONGU jurisdiction at which the player is a member.
A Handicap Category 1 player may only return a Supplementary Score over their home club.
Supplementary Scores can be returned over an 18-Hole or 9-Hole measured course when Qualifying Conditions prevail and tees used are for the relevant gender.
Players in Handicap Category 2 – 6 may return an unlimited number of scores per year.
There is no restriction to the number of scores returned in a single week.
Players with Exact Handicaps in the range 2.5 – 5.4 may return a maximum of 10 per year.
Players with Exact Handicaps in the range 2.4 to Plus Handicaps may return scores at any time to re-instate a lost ”c” status. However if “c” status is held they may only return Supplementary Scores during the period 01 September to 31 December in a calendar year and only the number of scores required to retain the “c” status.
A player wishing to return a Supplementary Score must register his intention with the starter and sign his card out. Failure to return a card will result in a 0.1 increase in Exact Handicap.
There is not CSS adjustment and handicap adjustments are made against the SSS.
Stroke play and Stableford format is acceptable.
