What handicap allowance do we use for a 9 hole non qualifing competition?
Neither England Golf or CONGU give guidance on handicap allocations for
9 hole non-qualifying competition.
We would always recommend that 9 hole stableford competition are run as qualifying to give players another opportunity to return a qualifying score.
If you do wish to run non-qualifying 9 hole competitions, I would recommend that you use the same handicap allowance as you would for a 9 hole qualifier, which you should be able to establish from the conversion sheet you received when you applied for a 9 hole SSS

What are County Colours?
Colours are awarded to both 1st team players and 2nd team players.
To gain these colours a player has to play in 8 league matches and win 4 points, this can be either foursomes or singles. (League matches consist of foursomes in the morning and singles in the afternoon and are played off scratch) occasionally a player can win her 4 points quite quickly but colours cannot be awarded until the completion of playing in 8 matches.
League matches for the 1st team are those played at county week, currently played against Lincolnshire, Leicestershire & Rutland, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Shropshire.
League matches for the 2nd team are currently those played against Derbyshire and Shropshire. Two matches are played each year against these two counties consisting of a home match and an away match.
There are a number of other matches that both teams play through the season but are not classed as league matches.
The colours take the form of a brooch and are worn with pride by each individual.
