Handicap system works

In the game between Bulwell Forest and Burton on Trent D at Bulwell no fewer than 5 of the 7 matches went to the 18th or beyond.

2 games finished on the18th having been all square after 17 holes 3 more games were all square after 18 and the players involved were delighted to be told that they had to continue to play extra holes in weather that was raining stair rods. Although Burton ended up winning 4.5 to 2.5 (one pair didn’t need to play the extra holes )

It goes to prove that the handicap system of full handicap difference plus one extra shot for the away players does work
