Golf Course Assessments

We have a responsibility to try and assess every golf course for SSS in a 10 year cycle. With the approach of a World Wide Handicapping System and the USGA’s requirements this is set to become more challenging.

The procedure on the day is quite labour intensive and usually requires between 3 and 5 people in order to assess the course within about five hours. This is then followed up by submitting reports to the USGA via England Golf.   When multiple tees are involved the process can often take longer. To satisfy the USGA each Lead Assessor can take up to 12 months to train and in the past we have only been allowed to carry out assessments between April and October.

We are currently working on bringing this part of our operation up to date and it’s our intention to employ part time assessors in order to help with the process. We recently met with England Golf and have been approved to test case a temporary SSS formula to ensure that all of our Clubs will be ready for the proposed switch over in 2020.

As part of our commitment to make this part of our business more professional we will look to

  • Communicate with Clubs and ensure that the schedule of Assessments is known to all managers.
  • Have more feet on the ground, during a longer part of the year assessing.
  • Improve our procedure during assessment in order to facilitate a smoother operation for all.

We will be in touch soon but for more information please phone 01844 279600
