Situation Update – Changes to be implemented immediately
Posted on: 19 March
Competitions for Golf Australia Handicap players
At the start of the season, the NRDGA attempted to address an issue related to the “Pace of Play”. We introduced a “Stableford Competition” for those players with handicaps above a certain level. This strategy has not worked for a number of reasons and we will discontinue this policy effective immediately.
We have decided to “educate rather than legislate” and will be producing a simple 1 page “Good Golf Habits – Guidelines for Pace of Play” document that will initially be distributed at the Ballina event in a few weeks time.

So, for the rest of the season, all players in 18/36 hole events will be playing in STROKE Competitions and the Order of Merit tables have been updated to retrospectively incorporate all players in the traditional Gross and Net competitions.
9 Hole Players – Handicap Adjustments
As mentioned at the conclusion of the presentation of our (very wet) day at Murwillumbah, there will be no adjustment to 9 hole handicaps after this shortened event.
