Stroke Index ChangesFebruary 9, 2016
As new score cards will be available shortly, the opportunity has been taken to tidy up the stroke indices on four holes on the White and Yellow courses.
The changes are fairly simple and mean that Hole 5 becomes Index 8 and Hole 8 moves to Index 14. Additionally, Hole 11 is now Stroke Index 15 and Hole 17 becomes Index 11.
The adjustments have been made to balance the layout to fit closer to CONGU guidelines with specific regard to Matchplay rules. That said, they will obviously affect all play on the course.
The changes have come into force immediately and were in place for the February Medal.
To clarify, the changes will not alter the Red course indices, but the changes in course signage, updates to Satellite measuring devices and the like may take a few weeks to filter through.
