Match Play Stroke Allocation Rules:

RRHMC holds 4 different season long Match Play events: Gross Singles, Gross Doubles, Net Singles, and Net Doubles.  For the Net competitions, each competitor must tell the other competitors his handicap for the day the Match is played. This can be done via the GHIN App or the computer in the club room.  RRHMC is now using handicap allowances: the allowances for Match Play are 100% for Singles, and 90% for Doubles.  Example of how to determine strokes for a Doubles Match:

Player A: 7 Course HCP X 90% HCP Allowance = 6.3 = 6 Playing HCP

Player B: 10 Course HCP X 90% HCP Allowance = 9 Playing HCP

Player C: 15 Course HCP X 90% HCP Allowance = 13.5 = 14 Playing HCP

Player D: 20 Course HCP X 90% HCP Allowance = 18 Playing HCP

In the RRHMC, the low player will always play at zero strokes and the other players will play off the low HCP Allowance.  In the above example Player A will play at zero strokes, Player B will receive 3 strokes, Player C will receive 8 strokes, and Player D will receive 12 stokes. 

Settling Ties in Match Play

Per Rule 3.2 a, 4 - If your match is tied after the final hole and you need to establish a winner (in RRHMC events, you do), the match is extended one hole at a time until there is a winner. Whenever possible, the holes played settling the tie should be played in the same order as the match. Handicaps strokes are given by hole the same way as is the round.

*For the net singles and doubles match play brackets, the winners of brackets 1 and 2 play each other in the quarterfinals.  Likewise, 3 plays 4, 5 plays 6, and 7 plays 8.*
