Gentleman – THE solitary premise of the world amateur HANDICAP championships is that… “no matter your handicap, you have the same chance as anyone else”. That extends down to the course selection as well. There is ZERO reason that this particular event should show favoritism to SCRATCH golfers in regards to course selection.
I think that the original request may have been targeted at playing the SAME course more than one time which would, in theory, give them a better chance at scoring well the second time they play it but that as well would be pointless. There is PLENTY of opportunity for a serious golfer to go play any and ALL of the courses on their schedule of play the days prior so if someone wanted to get experience on the courses of play, they could do so in advance of the formal event’s start on Monday.
