DEBRA Pairs Match-play Knock-out rules:

  • Entry fee is £30 per person, payable in advance.
  • The competition is open to both men and ladies (any combination) who hold current handicaps (men max 28, ladies max 36) and is a four-ball better ball match play where the lowest handicap player gives strokes to the other three players based on 90% of the difference between the lowest current handicap and that of each player.
  • In mixed matches, men play from the allocated tee of the day at the venue of play, ladies play from the red tees.  All take their stroke index from the men's scorecard.  Where the SSS at the venue of play differs for men and ladies, a handicap adjustment should be applied accordingly (before the 90% calculation).
  • We will divide the draw into geographic areas in an attempt to ensure that the initial matches are not too far apart. 
  • In Round One the team at the top of the draw have the pick of venue.  In Round Two the team at the bottom of the draw have the pick of venue. This will alternate throughout the tournament. (When playing at home we expect the home team, if club members, to split the guest fee with their opponents).
  • After each round you will need to submit your result to golf@debra.org.uk in time for the draw for each subsequent round. Please also advise us of any handicap changes during the tournament.
  • Closing date for entry - 29 March 2019.

  • The final will be played at Sunningdale at a date to be agreed with the finalists (no green fees to pay).
