Format
  • Match Play.  Handicaps will be played off of the lower ball in the match where applicable.  The higher handicapped player will receive the full difference in course handicap between the two players; the lower handicapped player will play from scratch.
  • Example:  If Player A is a 10 handicap and Player B is a 6 handicap, 10-6=4.  So Player A’s Handicap for the match will be 4.  Therefore Player A will receive 1 stroke on the 4 hardest holes.
  • Default Course:   There is a Default Course set up for each round of golf.  If players agree to play their match at a different course, that is fine.  But if the players cannot agree on another course, then they must play the match at the Default Course.
  • Default Number of Holes:   A match is to be played in an 18 hole match.  But if players agree to play a 9 hole match, or another set of holes for their match, that is fine.  Just as long as both players agree on the number of holes to be played.
  • You may play in more than one Division that you qualify for.

Default Handicapping:  The default handicapping method is to have handicaps played off of the lower ball in the match (as stated above).  However if both players agree to use the handicapping method to where both players get all their strokes, or any other method, that is fine.  But both players must agree prior to the match starting.

Default Handicaps For A Player To Use:  The default handicaps for a player to use is their GHIN Course Handicap.  Players Handicap Index gets updated daily during the active season.  But if both players do not agree, then you use the current GHIN Index for the player.  Depending on when the match is held, that is when you look at the players GHIN Index and convert to the Players Course Handicap (best way to figure this out is by using the GHIN App or website).
 
Default Course:  There is a default course set up for each round of golf.  If players agree to play their match at a different course, that is fine.  But if the players can not agree on another course, then they must play the match at the Default Course.
 
Default Number of Holes:  A match is to be played in an 18 hole match.  But if players agree to play a 9 hole match, or another set of holes for their match, that is fine.  Just as long as both players agree on the number of holes.
