2018 Order of Merit
Shires Junior Golf Tour’s Order of Merit had five different handicap divisions for the golfers in the 2018 season.
The handicap divisions, which include both boys and girls, are;
Gold – Handicaps +5 to 9.4.
Silver – Handicaps 9.5 to 21.4.
Bronze – Handicaps 21.5 to 36.
Copper (nine-hole comp) – Handicaps 37 to 44.
Diamond (nine-hole comp) – Handicaps 45 to 54.
A player’s handicap determined their handicap division in the Order of Merit. If their handicap moved outside the boundaries throughout the year, their Order of Merit division was the handicap division they played the most events in.
They will always play off their current handicap, and will, therefore, compete for prizes in their relevant handicap division at all individual events during the season, including the Grand Final.
