NEWS FOR 2016 SEASON:
1) The CA has formally adopted a modified version of the trial method for calculating doubles handicaps - a chart can be downloaded here
2) All handicap games will now be +/- 10 points. The exchange of 5 handicap points for 14 point games has been abandoned. This will affect the B League.
3) To allow the CA more time to review the Golf Croquet handicapping system, the status quo will remain for 2015, including the use of effective handicaps - a chart can be downloaded here.

The importance of keeping a handicap card was stressed, both for Association and Golf Croquet. ALL club members should keep a handicap card for their singles games, whether or not they are members of the CA. Membership of the CA is highly recommended to all; members receive, amongst many benefits, annual handicap cards for both Association and Golf Croquet. However, for those who do not have a card, one can be downloaded here in PDF format.
