Tee Men Women 70
Black / Blue 69.1 / 136 – / –
Blue / White 66.8 / 132 – / –

EG: Player Playing off Blue Tees with handicap index 5.5 =
(5.5 x 136= 748 / 113) = 6.6194690265486 + (69.1 – 70) = 5.7 rounded to 6 playing handicap

2-man scramble handicaps:

35 percent of the best player’s handicap will be added to 15 percent of the second-best player’s handicap for a two-person team handicap. The best player is the golfer with the lowest handicap. For example, if a team’s golfers have handicaps of 10 and 20, add 35 percent of 10 (3.5) to 15 percent of 20 (3) for a total of 6.5. This will be your team handicap index on the day.
