Information on how Handicaps are calculated...

Based on the same scores below ... The last 4 scores are used to calculate each players handicap.  (Please note that handicaps go back to last year’s scores - That’s “Carry” values in the table below).

After the 4th round is played, the formula drops one of the highest scores.

After the 6th round is played, the formula drops two of the highest scores.

Therefore, from the below table, the 4 handicap value with the 'X" in the USED FOR HCP column are used to calculate the player's handicap.

HANDICAP: HANDICAP FORMULA

 Please use the following definitions for selecting the handicap formula of your league: AVERAGE HANDICAP This type of handicapping does NOT take into account course rating or slope rating (i.e. difficulty). You can drop any number of low and high gross rounds to meet your league's needs. AGS means Adjusted Gross Score. The following equation is used: (Sum of AGS - Sum of Par) / Number of Rounds Used * Percent Multiplier DIFFERENTIAL HANDICAP Each round is "normalized" through the course's rating and slope. By adjusting for the difficulty of each course and tee box played, the golfer's scores at different courses can be compared evenly. AGS means Adjusted Gross Score (see above). The following equation will be used to calculate each round differential. (AGS - Course Rating) * 113 / Slope Rating Each weekly match (a.k.a course) handicap is then calculated by averaging the desired number of differentials, multiplying by the percent multiplier, and then accounting for the course's slope rating. (Sum of Differentials / Number of Rounds Used) * Percent Multiplier * (Slope Rating / 113) In other words (regardless of 9 or 18 holes): Handicap Index * (Slope Rating / 113)

We use the Average Handicap system. Our multiplier is set by the web site as 96.
