Handicap allowances are designed to provide equity for players of all levels of ability in each format of play, over both 9 holes and 18 holes.
The following table sets out the New Zealand Golf recommended handicap allowances. (Note: The below recommendations differ from those set out in Appendix C: WHS Rules of Handicapping.)
It is recommended, where possible and based on the size of the field, there be 2 – 3 handicap divisions.
Any handicap allowance is calculated from the Playing Handicap.
