Qualification: All players must have a current Wanderers handicap which must be kept valid throughout the competition.
Each game will be 4 ball better ball. Handicap to be calculated as 90% of the difference between the lowest handicap player and the others. For example, if the lowest is 5 and others are 10,15,24. Then the 5 handicapper receives no shots , 10 receives (10-5)*.9=4.5 =5, 15 receives (15-5)*.9=9, 24 receives (24-5)*.9=17.1=17. Lowest net score wins the hole.
