The Council of National Unions (CONGU), known as the British Golf Unions Joint Advisory Committee until 1960, came into existence at a conference held in York on 14th February 1924. The conference was convened by the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews as a means of enabling the representatives of the Golf Unions of Great Britain and Ireland to formulate a definitive system of fixing Scratch Scores and to arrive at a uniform system of handicapping based on Scratch Scores.
What CONGU does
Develops and maintains a Golf Handicapping System that provides CONGU Handicaps for all players of the Clubs affiliated to the National Unions and Associations. Also assists and supports these Organisations, and their Affiliated Clubs, in administering golf handicaps on a day-to-day basis.
