For Singles competitions the handicap allowance is the full difference between the Course handicaps. So, for example if lowest course handicap is 5 and higher is 10 the higher handicapper receives 5 shots, these are on stroke holes 1 to 5. For doubles the handicap allowance is 90% of the course handicap. After calculating the 90% and rounding to the nearest whole number the shots are taken against the lowest handicapper.
