Terms of the Competition
Handicap Full Handicap Allowance. Low handicap player subtracts handicap from high handicap player and high handicap player receives the remaining number of strokes to be taken according to the Stroke Index on the scorecard
Challenger The challenger in any tie will be the top player in the draw. A challenge book is available in the event of difficulty in arranging tie dates. It is of benefit to the smooth running of a competition for players to put a contact number/e-mail address on the competition sheet at their name.
Tied Matches In the event of a tie finishing all square after 18 holes, the match will be extended one hole at a time until there is a winner. In handicap competitions, strokes are given by hole as in the round just played. An extended match is a continuation of the same round, not a new round.
Result It is the responsibility of the winner of a tie to put their name forward on the competition sheet to the next round of the competition immediately after the conclusion of the tie.
In the event of a dispute in a tie, a member of the Committee must be informed as soon as possible after the conclusion of the tie.
It may be wise in view of the new rule changes for every player to carry a copy of the Rules of Golf. Available for free in the Clubhouse.
