Course Assessment by D.G.U.
During July the Derbyshire Golf Union did a course assessment on behalf of England Golf in preparation for new handicap rules that will come into force in 2020 and be recognised world wide.
This assessment has led to certain changes to the course measurements and the Standard Scratch Values (SSS)
The White course is confirmed at 5,985 yards / par 69 / SSS 70
Also an assessment has been made when playing the white 9th from the ‘Tiger Tee’ i.e. over the water from the corner tee. This is detailed under:
The White Alternative course is 5,940 yards / par 69 / SSS 70
The Yellow course is confirmed at 5,496 yards / par 70 / SSS 67
The Red course is confirmed at 5,032 yards par 70 / SSS 70
These all become effective from 31st July 2018
