Changes to Standard Scratch Scores

Published: 9th February 2017

England Golf have announced new Standard Scratch ratings for both Men and Ladies which will take immediate effect at St Enodoc for all competitions. The only major change is that the Men’s SSS off all the tees on the Church have been increased by 1. The full list is below including some intriguing new ones.

The calculations are actually made the Cornwall Golf Union official raters who work to the formula provided by the USGA and England Golf when actually examining the courses. Ironically the extra shot for the Men produces exactly the same result as the analysis which the Club carried out on the last two years competition results which clearly showed that the SSS should be increased by one!

The full list of Standard Scratch Scores is:-

Church Course

Men Blue tees 73
Men White tees 72
Men Yellow tees 71          Ladies Yellow tees 77
Men Red tees 69             Ladies Red tees 75
