The Main Points

Work out the difference between your handicaps. That tells you how many strokes the weaker side receives. Take those strokes according to Stroke Index.

Example: if you get 3 strokes, you will take those on holes 3, 5 & 12.You play the game by holes.

Lower net score wins hole.

Net scores equal – hole halved.

State of match expressed by: so many holes up or all square.

Match is won when one side leads by number of holes greater than the number of holes still to be played.

Example: if you are 3 up after the 16th hole, you cannot lose. Therefore, you have won 3 and 2.

In the Pairs each side’s TWO scores are added together to decide the winner of the hole.

If you are all square after 18 holes, go on to sudden death.

Start sudden death on the 1st hole. Use your discretion to cause minimum disruption to other players.
