It was reported last night that publication of the Spring Meeting results had been delayed because of software problems relating to CSS calculations.  This arose because we are required to calculate separately the CSS for Gullane members and non-Gullane members, but the handicapping software cannot provide this functionality for Counties and Associations because we are not responsible for any members’ handicaps.  The CSSs have therefore been calculated manually, and came out as 78 (3 higher than SSS) for Gullane members and 77 (2 higher than SSS) for non-Gullane members.  In this circumstance, CONGU requires a single CSS to be calculated, and this came out as 77.

Because of the confusion, there is a risk that the results may have been communicated to Home clubs twice, and we suggest that you check your handicap record to make sure this has not happened.  If it has, you will need to ask your Home Club to correct this.

Many apologies for these complications.  Congratulations again to those with winning scores.

We are still awaiting final confirmation of player availability before publishing the draw for the Championship and the Handicap Quaich, and these will follow shortly along with the list of twos and the full results.
