Hole Handicaps adjusted for both sets of combo tees

Posted on May 16, 2020 |

Thanks to all who posted hole-by-hole scores for the combo tees last year.  Using that data, we've adjusted the Hole Handicaps for each of the Blue/White and Green/Yellow sets of combo tees.  Those adjustments are now integrated into the GHIN system.  So, when you log into the GHIN app, or you post your score in the locker room or golf shop at the club (when we're finally allowed to open both), and you decide to post hole-by-hole scores, the system will automatically adjust your score (if necessary) based on your handicap. Here's an example of how the system would automatically adjust your score... Let's say your handicap is 25 for the Green/Yellow tees.  That means that you'd get at least one stroke per hole, with two strokes on the 7 most difficult holes on the course.  With the new Hole Handicaps, #6 is the 5th most difficult hole on the course.  With the new World Handicap System, the most that you can post on any hole is a net-double-bogey.  Given that you'd be getting 2 strokes on #6, the highest score that you can post on #6 is an 8 (par is 4, plus 2 because you're allowed a double bogey, plus 2 because you get 2 strokes on that hole = 8).  If you happened to score a 9 on that hole, and logged that 9 when you posted hole-by-hole, the GHIN system would automatically adjust your score on #6 to an 8. If you don't happen to post your score hole-by-hole, then you need to make those kinds of scoring adjustments yourself.  Prior to 2020, you needed to adjust your posted score using the ESC (Equitable Stroke Control).  With the new World Handicap System, your max score on any hole is net-double-bogey. If you have any questions about the revised Hole Handicaps for the combo tees, or need help in understanding the net-double-bogey score posting limit, please contact our club's Handicap Chair, Jim Niziurski at...

A nice explanation of the new World Handicap System

Posted on Apr 20, 2020 |

The RDGA Handicap Committee has put together a video that accurately and concisely explains the new World Handicap System.  Please open the attached link and watch/listen to the video. RDGA WHS Condensed Handicapping Video We recognize that spring educational seminars have been postponed or cancelled due to Covid, so we have put together this condensed slide presentation with voice over to help your members with the most important changes to WHS.  We encourage you to share this with your Members directly. We are also working on creating short tutorials on how to use the USGA GHIN App to post scores, etc, as we anticipate and encourage golfers to post their scores using the USGA GHIN APP as yet another way to eliminate a communal touchpoint (scorecards).  These smaller videos will be forthcoming...
