ToC Appendix N: Handicaps in Mixed Gender Competitions

To provide equity In mixed gender golf an adjustment is made to the Ladies’ Playing Handicap calculation:


Playing Handicap  =  (Course Handicap x Handicap Allowance)  +  Adjustment

The adjustment depends on the tees used and the format being played:

  • The difference in Course Rating for 18 hole Medals, Gross Score & Maximum Score

  • The difference in the number of stableford points required to play to handicap for 18 hole Stablefords & Par/Bogey

  • The difference in Par for 9 hole Medals, Gross Score & Maximum Score

  • No adjustment is required in 9 hole Stablefords & Par/Bogey

  • In Scrambles the medal adjustment is divided by the number of players in the team
