• All tournaments except eclectic tournaments are played using a current handicap.  Handicaps for 18 holers are limited to 40 when playing from green tees and to 36 when playing from the gold tees.
  • World Handicap System rules as of January 2020 apply, which changes the index calculation.
  • Maximum Hole Score:  Net double bogey replaces ESC / Equitable Shot Control.

GHIN calculates the player’s Net + Double Bogey + any handicap strokes received on a hole…or, think of it as Par + 2 + what player is allotted based on handicap.  This is used for handicap posting only and not for BWGA Tuesday tournaments.
