The Handicap Match Play Knockout Competition will be held over a period of 5 months. (Maximum Handicap is 36). The field size will be restricted to the first 64 players to complete registration form with full payment of fee. The 1st Round draw will be random.

Use the “Match Play Index” to determine where strokes are given. Player with the lower handicap plays off scratch; the other player’s handicap is adjusted accordingly (e.g. A’s handicap is 10, B’s is 15 then A plays off 0 and B plays off 5 (i.e. 15 – 10 = 5).

A match which ends “all square” will be played off hole by hole until one player wins a hole. The play-off will start at the hole where the match began, and strokes should be given as in the stipulated round.

Match play handicap is to be the current handicap for the day of the match with all matches (including Final) to be played over 18 holes. Timetable of events:
