Handicap calculation  At the start of each handicapped event, each person's scores are averaged for the previous year's results, for everytime that person plays at the club in a similarly scored event.This average is then taken from 50, thus giving a range of + and  handicaps. The partnership handicap is then calculated as the average of the 2 handicaps. No handicap shall exceed +/10% Where no previous scores are available the tournament convenor, president and one other committee member will allocate a handicap, which will be reviewed after 6 weeks.
