Handicap Reminders

Maintaining proper handicaps and playing by USGA rules are fundamental elements of our club.  Remember to post all acceptable scores played during the active season (April 1st to October 31st in Wisconsin; other states vary) using Equitable Stroke Control ("ESC").  However, the club will post scores for all Majors and Summer Tour events.    

Note that scores when playing alone are not acceptable for handicap purpose.  Click here for more information: Playing Alone FAQ

Equitable Stroke Control:

            Course Handicap     Maximum Score per Hole

            9 or less                              Double Bogey

            10 through 19                           7

            20 through 29                           8           

            30 through 39                           9
