I have been reading Rule 6.2b in the Rules of Handicapping manual, and I don’t really understand what is meant by ‘play to handicap’.

From page 66:

Stableford formats

l For an 18-hole round: The number of points required for all players to

‘play to handicap’ must be calculated from each applicable set of tees.

o Those players requiring the highest number of points to ‘play to

handicap’ receive no additional strokes to the standard calculation of

their

*Playing Handicap*.

o All players playing from a set of tees requiring a lower number of

points to ‘play to handicap’ will receive additional strokes to their

*Playing Handicap*equal to the difference between the number of

points they require to ‘play to handicap’ and the highest number of

points required by other players.

**Rule 6**

These additional strokes are added to the player’s

*Playing Handicap*as

follows:

*Playing*

*Handicap*

=

(

*Course Handicap*x

*handicap allowance*)

+

difference in number of points

required to 'play to handicap'

(highest to lowest)

I have set up a dummy comp on ClubV1, using ladies and gents handicaps over a broad range, and everyone seems to just get the 95% allowance. Should there be a further allowance for one of the sexes using these figures, that maybe is not incorporated into the ClubV1 software?
