Rather simple but at our Club par is 71 and CR is 71.1 and 69.7 respectively.
Sure RF of wjemather will correct me if wrong but all that is required is to add 0.1 for The Whites and subtract 1.3 for the yellow Rees to calculate the Course Handicap. Ie. Calculate as at present from HI and adjust accordingly.
Still wish I knew where the earlier post went
Rather than dismissing them as fairytale scores, maybe consider whether adding a 10 point 9-hole score to a 24 point 9-hole score better reflects scoring ability than scaling up each score, and what the resultant HI would be if that scoring pattern were repeated using each method.Adding two 9 holes rounds together instead of using fairytail scores?
That don’t matter, what matters is it’s simple.What???..... like add 2 scores from our front 9's together to give 18 holes... makes no sense at all
Not wanting to drag on a thread but like a bad penny Ave not gone away Especially when I said I have said what I have said. However last night I was perusing the web and came across the latest club committee meeting. This was discussed.Andy,
I am sorely tempted to copy your entire post and Whatsapp it to your club's General Manager and ask for comment.
Delusional. Most players thought 36 points was playing to handicap from all tees on all courses, and still do.I don't recall that we ever did, but we could have run a comp with a choice of tee before WHS.
Par 70, but standard scratch of 69 from yellows and 71 from whites.
Everyone understood that 35 points from whites and 37 points from yellows was "playing to handicap" so 2 adjustment shots would have been necessary.
This they would have understood at the time, I'm sure.
