The way the handicaps have been calculated is as follows:
  1. The average percentage for the last three years is calculated.
  2. IMPs are calculated by adding 0.5 IMPs for every whole percentage below 50% or subtracting 0.5 IMPS for every whole percentage above 50%.
    47 - 47.99% = + 1.5 IMPs
    48 - 48.99% = + 1.0 IMPs
    49 - 49.99% = + 0.5 IMPs
    50 - 50.99% = - 0.5 IMPs
    51 - 51.99% = - 1 IMP
    52 - 52.99% = - 1.5 IMPs
    etc.
    
  3. The resulting IMPs are then uplifted by 40% to create a handicap.
