This should be a fast game. If you can’t win the hole pick up. If you and your partner obviously can’t win the hole – concede it and move on. Don’t make opponents sink short putts unless you really think they might miss.
The event is a team’s handicap Match Play event, you may give your partner advice.
The winner of the match is the team that is more holes up than there are holes left to play. If square after 18 holes the match must continue until a result is achieved. Any shots received in the first 18 holes are the same for any additional holes.
All players use their playing handicap that is determined when their GA handicap is adjusted by the Blue course slope rating. The playing handicap will be printed on the team score card. There is a maximum playing handicap of 27.
The lowest marker in either team is the scratch marker, he gets no shots. The other players get a shot for each extra playing handicap number greater than the scratch marker’s handicap, i.e. if the scratch marker is off a playing handicap of 10 and the other players are all off 11, then those three players get a shot on one hole. If two players were off 11 and one player was off 20, two players would get a shot on one hole and one player would get a shot on 10 holes.
To determine on which holes players get a shot, use the match play index on the back of the score card. You will see that if you have one stroke you get it on the 8th hole. If you had 10 strokes you would get all the even holes plus the 7th.
The team that is furthest away from the hole controls the play. That team may decide to play either of their balls. If a team plays out of order their opponents can ask them to cancel the shot and play in the correct order.
Honour on the first tee is according to the draw.
