Yesterday I popped in to the clubhouse to check a few things. While there I noticed that there is now a new slope table for the Master Course. There are a few differences from the old one.
There is now a separate slope for both the ladies and men playing off the blue tees. Previously I think there may only have been a table for the ladies playing off the blue tees
On both the mens from the yellow tees and ladies from the red tees it appears that the course has been classified as being more difficult than before. So virtually everyone will get an additional shot or shots when playing off their FGS handicaps.
Luckily we are not playing 18 holes on the Master this week. So we have a bit of time to update the list of handicaps for FGS members on the FGS website before the next FGS competition on the Master course.
One other interesting point is about the new forward ladies tees that are being set up on the course at the moment. On each hole there is some concrete in the ground with a wooden post in it. I think these designate the points on the course where new forward ladies tees are going to be placed/cut/built. Some of these are at the very front of existing tees. Some are quite a way in front of the current ladies tees. I guess the slope table for these tee positions will be published once these new forward ladies tees come in to use. Perhaps next autumn? I guess we will have to wait and see.
