Handicap Regulations - Posting Scores

1. Post your 18-hole and 9-hole scores for all eligible rounds, whether at Grover or away. Do so immediately after completing play if possible. Use the Handicap Score Book in the clubhouse. Do not withhold unusually high or unusually low scores (unless the low score is occasioned by exceptionally poor course conditions).

2. Enter a "T" with your score if the round was played as part of a tournament.

3. In reporting Away scores, include the date, your name, the name of the course, the tees used, and both the rating and the slope from these tees. It is helpful if you also place your scorecard in the pocket of the handicap book.

4. Incomplete rounds: record as 18-hole scores if you have played at least 18 holes; as 9-hole scores if you have played 7-8 holes. Take your score from each missing hole to be par plus the number of strokes to which your handicap would entitle you. A 15 handicap player, for instance, would take a bogey on unplayed holes rated 1 - 15, a par on holes rated 16-18.

5. Incomplete holes: if you have "picked up" for any purpose, your score on the hole (for handicap purposes) is that which you would likely have made if you had finished the hole. If you have picked up on the green from one foot away, for example, assume that you would need one putt; from 12 feet assume 2 putts.

6. Equitable Stroke Control (ESC): For handicap purposes, there is a maximum score you can record for any hole. This maximum depends on your handicap - as follows:

 

Handicap
9 or less
10-19
20-29
30-39
40-49
50 or above
No Handicap available

 

Maximum Score
Double bogey
7
8
9
10
11
11

 

In tournmament rounds you should not apply ESC until after you have turned in your white tournament card.


How is your handicap calculated (in brief)?

Each golfer's 20 most recent scores are included in the calculation

Tournament scores are "weighted" and thus, counted twice in this consideration

A determination of the "best" 10 out of each golfer's most recent 20 scores is made (the 10 best with course rating and slope considered)

These 10 "best" scores are then processed to arrive at a USGA Index

The USGA Index is then used to calculate your handicap for the course you are playing


To find your latest handicap in the listing below:

- The number immediately after your name is your USGA handicap index.

- The number in the middle is your Grover handicap (as of the posting date).

- The last figure is the total number of rounds you have played.

IMPORTANT NOTE: For tournament scoring, use the current handicap listed in the book at the clubhouse.
