Handicaps

These are USGA INDEXES They must be CONVERTED TO THE SLOPES FOR TEES PLAYED AT EACH COURSE. If you have an official GHIN number through another golf course, great.  If you are maintaining a handicap through us here is some important information: Bill McCarson is our handicap chairman and can answer most of your questions.  His Phone is 206 234-9094.  His E-mail address is wmac41@comcast.net

If you have never had a handicap you will need a minimum of 5 scores to enter before you can be considered official,  Call Bill or contact him by e-mail so you can get started.  Usually only rounds played between March 1st and November 30th may be posted.  IF YOU DO NOT HAVE AN OFFICIAL HANDICAP (AT LEAST 5 SCORES ENTERED) YOU WILL NOT BE ELIGIBLE TO PLAY AND WIN MONEY IN AN ETGL EVENT.  You may still participate, but you will not be included as a member of a two-man or four-man team for purposes of earning money or contributing to a team score.

Recording and Adjusting: Equitable Stroke Control (ESC) is the downward adjustment of individual hole scores for handicap purposes in order to make handicaps more representative of a player's potential scoring ability.  ESC sets a maximum number that a player can post on any hole depending on the player's Course Handicap.  ESC is used only when a player's actual score exceeds his maximum number based on the table below.  There is no limit on the number of holesa player may adjust his score. 

Course Handicap      Max. Number allowed
9 or less                               Double Bogie
10-19                                             7
20-29                                             8
30-39                                             9
This is only for RECORDING YOUR SCORE IN THE GHIN SYSTEM
