Here’s a little more information about the Kimberley Golf Club from the Board of Directors.

 

Handicap Information

KGC Handicap Information

KGC and BCGA / Golf Canada

The Kimberley Golf Club is a member club of the BC Golf Association (BCGA) and through this affiliation is also a member club of Golf Canada (formerly RCGA). The BCGA assesses the club for annual dues based on Full-status membership numbers. These dues cover the cost for the various programs and events run by the BCGA and Golf Canada, one of which is the Handicap system located on the Golf Canada website.

The Golf Canada Handicap is recognized by all Golf Canada afffiliated clubs for tournament play, and for events run by Golf Canada or provinical associations such as the BCGA.

KGC Membership Categories

Within the Kimberley Golf Club we have many different membership and associate categories. Note that the BCGA dues are treated differently depending on your membership type.

1) If you are a full-status member, your BCGA dues are assessed as part of your KGC membership dues. You automatically receive access to all programs offered by BCGA/Golf Canada. Full-Status members include Adult (Couples), Senior (Couples), Junior, Student, and Nine-hole membership categories.

2) If you are a member of another Golf Canada affiliated club in addition to KGC, please contact the club regarding exemption from BCGA dues. You should only be required to pay these dues once. You should designate which club is your primary club and pay your dues through the primary club.

3) If you are an Associate Member or Yard Card Holder, you are considered to be a limited status member of KGC. The club is not assessed by the BCGA for annual dues, so you do not automatically receive membership in the BCGA/Golf Canada. If you wish to obtain access to a Golf Canada handicap you must request membership into BCGA/Golf Canada and pay the relevant dues.

4) If you play under a corporate membership, you will need to notify the club if you require a Golf Canada handicap. Payment of BCGA dues may be required.

5) If you are a regular participant in the KGC Men’s night or a member of one of our Men’s Teams, you may have been assigned a Men’s Night Handicap. Note that this handicap is for use in Men’s night play or events affiliated with Men’s Night only. it is not recognized for tournament play at other clubs or for other KGC tournaments.

6) If you are a public player who wishes to play in tournaments at KGC or at other clubs, you will require a Golf Canada handicap. You should contact Golf Canada directly to acquire access to the handicap system and pay the relevant dues.

If you have any questions related to handicaps, please contact Director of Golf – Simon Jones.

Equitable Stroke Control

Golf Canada to Institute Changes to Equitable Stroke Control

December 6, 2011
Changes to Canadian methodology for tracking golfer handicaps to take effect March 1, 2012
Oakville, Ont. (Golf Canada) – The Royal Canadian Golf Association (operating as Golf Canada) has announced a notable change to the Canadian methodology for calculating a golf handicap as it relates to Equitable Stroke Control (ESC).
The RCGA Handicap & Course Rating Committee recently approved a change to the long-standing Equitable Stroke Control (ESC) method, bringing the Canadian methodology into equivalency with current ESC calculations employed by the United States Golf Association (USGA).
The new Canadian methodology for Equitable Stroke Control will go into effect March 1, 2012 to coincide with the release of the 2012-2015 version of the Handicap Manual.
WHAT IS EQUITABLE STROKE CONTROL (ESC)?
Equitable Stroke Control (ESC) is the downward adjustment of individual hole scores for handicap purposes in order to make Handicap Factors more representative of a player’s potential scoring ability. It sets a maximum number that a golfer can post on any hole depending on the player’s Course Handicap.
HOW IT WORKS:
The modification to the current Equitable Stroke Control calculation is illustrated in the ESC table below:
CURRENT EQUITABLE STROKE CONTROL
NEW EQUITABLE STROKE CONTROL
0 or Plus Course Handicap Maximum of 1 over par 9 or Less Course Handicap Maximum of 2 over par
1-18 Course Handicap Maximum of 2 over par 10-19 Course Handicap Maximum score of 7
19-32 Course Handicap Maximum of 3 over par 20-29 Course Handicap Maximum score of 8
33 and over Course Handicap Maximum of 4 over par 30-39 Course Handicap Maximum score of 9
40 and Over Course Handicap Maximum score of 10
WHY THE CHANGE TO ESC METHODOLOGY?
The RCGA Handicap & Course Rating Committee approved the change after commissioning statistical research which revealed that the current Equitable Stroke Control (ESC) method causes differences in Handicap Factors that are not necessarily commensurate with a difference in ability, particularly for golfers in the higher half of each range of handicaps within the ESC table.
A golfer with a 1 handicap, for example, should not be subject to the same ESC score adjustments as a player with an 18 handicap when their abilities are so different. By reducing the size of the handicap ranges within the ESC table, those issues are mitigated. The new ESC method provides a more even distribution across a wide range of handicaps.
IMPACT OF THE NEW ESC METHODOLOGY:
Using maximum numbers (rather than adjustments being based on hole-par) facilitates simpler application and comprehension of the Equitable Stroke Control (ESC) procedure.  It also mitigates the affect of courses not allocating the proper par to holes as per RCGA guidelines.
Currently, in a head-to-head match, the lower handicap player has a better than 50% chance of winning. The new ESC will bring the odds closer to 50%.
The new ESC brings an RCGA Handicap Factor and USGA Handicap Index into virtual equivalency – an important consideration with the number of ‘snowbirds’ playing golf in certain parts of the United States during the winter months.
Canada will continue to use ‘Handicap Factor’ as the proper terminology related to handicapping.
Golf Canada will be communicating the changes to Equitable Stroke Control methodology to all Canadian golf industry groups including golf clubs that use Golf Canada’s Handicap Network and golfers that track an official handicap in advance of March 1, 2012.
