Ryder Cup League Challenge Handicap and Tee Box System
- Each player will use their Handicap Index from GHIN if using that service. If not part of the GHIN handicap system, a Handicap Index will be assigned to you.
- Players that are part of the GHIN SYSTEM already have a course handicap for each tee box. A course handicap for the Blue tees, one for the Whites and one for the Golds. If you are not part of the GHIN system, a Handicap Index will be assigned to you and then the formula will be used to create your course handicap for each set of tee boxes.
- A sheet with each course handicap will be available. Handicaps could be adjusted up or down if needed.
- 0-8 Handicap Indexes will use the Blue-White tees, 9-17 will use the Whites and 18+ and those over 65, can use the Golds. If you play the Whites or Golds, you can choose to play up to the Whites or Blue-White and get the extra strokes. Example:
Player A – Handicap Index = 8.6 Player B – Handicap Index = 20.6
Blue Course Handicap = 9 Blue Course Handicap = 22
White Course Handicap = 6 White Course Handicap = 19
Gold Course Handicap = 2 Gold Course Handicap = 13
If player B elects to play from the Gold tees, his handicap is 13 and he gets ½ of those strokes (6.5 rounded down to 6) due to a nine hole match. Player A will play from the Blue-Whites (8.6 rounded down to 8) and will get four strokes ( 9 rounded down to 8 and then ½ of that). Along with playing the Blue-Whites, player will have to give two strokes (one on each of two of the lowest handicap holes as listed on the scorecard played during their 9 hole match.
If player B elects to use the Whites, he will get 9 strokes (1/2 of 19 rounded down). Player A gets his 4, so Player B will now get a stroke on 5 of the lowest handicap holes during their 9 hole match (9-4=5).
If Player B would elect to play the Blue-Whites, he would get 7 strokes total ( ½ of 22 is 11 minus Player A’s 4 strokes = 7). One each of the lowest handicap holes of the 9 played.
