When a single round competition extends over two or more days the following terms apply:
- Players may only enter the competition once and must indicate before play if their score is to count for the competition.
- Rounds played in a separate singles or team competition on one of the competition days will not count for the extended competition.
- Players who elect to play on the 2nd (or 3rd) day are permitted to play on the course in casual golf or in a different competition on the 1st (or 2nd) day without breaching the Rules of Golf, Rule 5.2 (Practicing on Course Before or Between Rounds).
- If play on the 1st (or 2nd) day is suspended by the Committee due to adverse weather conditions, a player that has not completed their round is entitled to complete their round on the 2nd (or 3rd) competition day, as long as they do not play on the course between the two parts of the round.
- It is acceptable for flagsticks and tee positions to be moved, grass to be cut, and the course to be otherwise maintained between any days of the competition. The effect on scoring will be minimal, as what is seen as ‘difficult’ to one player might not be so to another. Differences in weather conditions may also be evident, but such differences are part of the game of golf and must be accepted; these changes could happen during the course of a single day’s play.
- Separate Playing Conditions Calculations (PCC) adjustments are made on each day of the competition and handicap updates are calculated shortly after midnight of the day of play.
