19 x10%, 8x15%, 6x20% and 3x25% =1.9, 1.2, 1.2 and 0.75.

The playing handicaps are 1.9 +1.2 +1.2 +0.75 = 5.05 = 5.

Thanks, sorry to labour a point if the 4 course handicaps had been 1.6,1.6,1.6,1.6 the playing handicap i.e the number deducted once the total score has been calculated would be 6.4 rounded to 6 as opposed to 8. Is that correct RF?

.5s are rounded up.

The team's playing handicap in your second example is therefore 6.

To be fussy and to avoid confusion, there is only one

A tip. If you haven't got the Handicap Indices use the Course Handicap and set the Slope to 113. Course Rating and Par are irrelevant in this case so set them both to 72.

Previously, which no longer applies, there would have been <30 handicaps, now playing handicaps, from say 4.0/4.1 etc to 7. Now there will only be say 4 playing handicaps 4,5,6,7. Therefore there will be more reliance on countback Scores.

Have a got this right?

I don't know what software your club uses, but ClubV1 has handled a couple of scrambles for us impeccably - including the countbacks.

The calculation for playing handicap is to 1 decimal point NOT 2. Is that correct?

The playing handicap is a whole number.

Sorry Colin if the Course handicap was 13 x25% =3.25. Would the figure be 3.2,0R 3.3. What I was trying to clarify was whether to 1 or 2 decimal points. Thank you

The individual allowance values are summed and rounded to a whole number for the team

Have you tried the calculator in #5 ?

The individual **allowances** are calculated to 2 dec places. So in this case it would be 3.25.
