World Handicap System (WHS)
All golfers must have an established handicap with the World Handicap System (formerly GHIN).
If you want to enter only your total score for a round, you must know your NET DOUBLE BOGEY on each hole. NDB is the maximum number you can post toward your score and it is specific to each golfer based on her handicap and the difficulty of the hole.
Here is the formula:
Double Bogey + Handicap Strokes You Get On THAT Hole = YOUR MAXIMUM
If you use the hole by hole posting option, the system will automatically calculate and make the adjustment for you automatically. This is the recommended method for posting scores.
For more information about the World Handicap System and the new Rules of Handicapping go to usga.org.
There is a computer in the pro shop that makes it easy to post your scores. If you need help, ask one of the coordinators or just about any other member to walk you through it! Or, you can log into your account from a home computer, smart phone or tablet.
Honest handicaps help keep the game fair, so, do your part and post your scores accurately. Thanks!
