golf ladder

The golf ladder is a fun challenge for members of Chesham and Ley Hill, designed to run while we’re within Tier 4 of the Covid lockdown.  The rules are simple, you can challenge any player above you and, if you beat them, you move above them in the ladder.  But you also climb further spaces above your beaten opponent by virtue of your matchplay score, for example, if you beat a player five places above you by 3 holes, you climb 5+3=8 places up the ladder.

You can play over nine or eighteen holes, but you must complete the full complement of holes, so that you have a final score of +1, +2 etc, in the same way we score the Edy competition.  Send your results to Richard via email or WhatsApp.

The ladder starts in handicap order and I’ve only included those who seem to play regularly in the roll-ups.  Anyone who wants to be added can either contact Richard or make a challenge.  Matches to be played off the yellow tees, full handicap allowance.

If playing nine holes use the full handicap difference and then reference the front nine stroke index, eg, Player A 18 hcp v Player B 23 hcp.  Player B receives (23-18) =  5 shots, but he will only actually receive a stroke on the two holes [on the front nine] with the lowest stroke index, which are holes 2 & 8.
