WORLD HANDICAP SYSTEM

In January 2020, a new handicap system was rolled out to the world. We don't require our members to maintain a personal handicap. We use league handicaps for all events held at our club. However, for those of you who wish to maintain an offical USGA sanctioned HDCP using the GHIN system, here are some important changes to be aware of about the new handicap system:

  1. Handicaps will be calculated using 8 out of your last 20 scores (instead of 10)
  2. Handicaps will be revised daily instead of only on the 1st and 15th of the month.
  3. You will need to adjust each hole score to a net double bogey now which is calculated as:

    Max Score = Par + 2 + strokes you get

    Example: Suppose your hdcp is 10. You score an 8 on hole 6. You would get 1 stroke on this hole.
    So, max score is 4 + 2 + 1 = 7

  4. Weather condtions will also be looked at and scores will automatically be adjusted if they affect your normal scoring.
