This division will be comprised of those failing to qualify for the Championship and Senior Championship Divisions as well as those ineligible or opting out of the qualifying round. Those players will be flighted and seeded by handicap index (based on the July 1 revision) with 8 players per flight.
NOTE: Handicap Division matches will be played with handicap by wheeling off the lowest players course handicap. If the handicap spread warrants it the Committee may decide to play some Handicap Division flights playing their matches with no handicap.
