T Club Poniente Match Play
From the 7th January to the 30th April 2017
Regulations Match-Play Individual Handicap
This tournament is open to the T Club friends, male and female, with golf license and handicap below 28,0. Depending on the number of entries, the committee will set the draw considering the exact handicap at the closing date of registration. All entries are subject to approval and acceptance of the Tournament Committee, which reserves the right to accept or reject.
The players will play in Match Play format with handicap allowance and all matches will be played over 18 holes from the yellow tees for men and red tees for ladies. The player with the higher handicap receives the full difference between the playing handicaps of the two players. Playing handicap will be actual handicap with which the player normally plays private competitions on a weekly basis at T Golf &Country Club (i.e. if a player normally applies the slope following the EGA Handicap System, his/her playing handicap will be the EGA PLAYING HANDICAP according to the corresponding slope table, but if the player does not normally applies the EGA Handicap System and does not consider the slope system to his/her exact handicap, the playing handicap will be the ROUNDED HANDICAP based on the player´s exact handicap). As the tournament takes place during several months and the player´s handicap may vary, the exact handicap and playing handicap must be updated on the day of the match.
If a match is tied after the 18th hole, the match will continue with the existing handicap compensation until one of the two players beats the opponent.
