Handicap Calculation - POSTER

It is now easier to establish a Handicap Index, with the number of 18 hole rounds needed reduced from five to THREE rounds. And with Daily Revisions, that new player will see their Handicap Index the next day.

The maximum handicap has been increased to 54.0 for both men and women. 

Once a full playing profile of 20 scores is reached, a player's Handicap Index will be calculated using the lowest EIGHT of those 20 scores.
