10 and 18 v 13 and 14

So over 18 - A is scratch, B gets 8, C 3 and D 4

Over 16 the start point is A 9, B 16, C 12, D 12

So over 16 - A is scratch, B gets 7, C 3, D 3

E&OE

Over 18 doesnt B get 7?

90% then 16/ 18ths

How does that jive with this part of your first post?

*The 2 closed holes are stroke index 5 and 7 and one of our opponents would get a shot at both of the closed holes from his partner, neither I, or my partner, would get shots on either hole *

Or is it x 16/18 then 90% ?

IMO

Help me out here - he doesn't lose any shots from his opponents, but does from his partner? Then what impact does that have on the game?

It would seem, to me, fairer that, for this (16 hole) match, SI 6 becomes SI 5 SIs 8 and 9 become SIs 6 and 7 resp. Then the 16/18ths of Handicaps should also be applied to all handicaps before determining 90% of difference. Off the top of my head, I believe, in this case, 18-capper would lose 2 shots, with others not affected.

All 18 holes must be in play;

A minimum number of holes must be in play, and if they are, just get on with it (it is winter)

Is it not dangerous asking the individual players to deal with it themselves? Inevitably, someone will feel like they are losing out. Or, the team that loses may be upset, because they may feel if all 18 holes were open, they could have pulled it back in last 2 holes. Besides, what if they agreed to something that was advised on this thread, and it conflicted with guidelines for that competition set by the Committee?

After all if he needs a shot a half is a good result.

Then just play the card as is .
