When this situation arises the Competition Organiser will advise players who has home advantage.
If a player’s handicap index increases and is outside the limit of the division (+ – 15.4} they must play off the maximum handicap in that division. If a player’s handicap index reduces and is below the handicap range, they may stay in the division but play off their new handicap index.
