HandicapYour handicap would be 8

No, it definitely would not be an 8. First of all, yes, you can extrapolate a standard handicap from play on an executive course. The formula for calculating an exact handicap is a bit complicated, involving both the rating and slope of the courses played. However, in the case cited, the golfer is 16 over par for 9 holes. The computed handicap would be closer to 30-32.

In golf can you consider a handicap score of 16 respectable?

A handicap of 16 is respectable if you aren't planning on trying out for the PGA. A 16 handicap says your average score is 16 shots over par for that course.

Is 21 considered a low or high handicap in golf?

well it is considered a relatively high handicap in golf, this means the individual would likely average around 93 for all his rounds of golf. one must include slope and rating of the course when calculating a handicap, all handicap calculating programs calculate slope and rating for you. please keep in mind this came from a scratch handicap (0) and that the average golfer shoots 106 in his average round so think of it as your already better than average!!!!

Do you round up or down when handicapping?

Neither. A golfer applies his or her exact handicap index to a formula which determines their course handicap for the specific course and set of tees that they're playing. The course handicap for each competitor is used. Those are expressed in whole numbers so no rounding is involved.

Is a handicap of 7 good?

Yes, i think that is a good handicap. OK you are not a world class player but you most likely shoot around a few over every round. Keep it up, you clearly have potential. ** While not actually true, you can (very) roughly think of your handicap as what you will shoot over par on an an average course on a good day. So a handicap of 7 should break 80 on occasion, which we could call quite good. As additional context, the average golfer shoots 100, and the average golfer that tracks their handicap online is about a 15, so you would definitely be above average on both counts.

What handicap golf an 82 average?

In the UK it would depend on the CSS/SSS and par of the course. In the states I think it goes on par for the course and the slope rating. 82 consistently would put you in the 10-12 or so category.

How do you handicap alternate shots in golf on two-man teams?

Typically, you take 50% of the combined handicaps of both players. Then you apply the handicap to the course handicap holes.....So if the players have a total 14 handistrokes they would get a stroke in Handicap holes 1-14....

How do you convert stableford points to a stroke score?

36 points is level your handicap. So you can simply add your handicap to par for the course, then if you have more than 36 points, take the amount you are over 36 points by and take this away from the total of par for the course plus your handicap. And if you have less than 36 points you add how many short you are to the total of par for the course and your handicap. However this will not work if you have had a hole where you were more than 2 shots over your allowance.

Would your handicap be the same on the yellow tees as it would be on the white tees?

No. A true USGA handicap takes into consideration the tees being played. The slope rating and course rating which are used to calculate your handicap are different for each tee.

What is a handicap in golf?

The USGA (United States Golf Association) introduced a handicap system in the early 20th Century. The purpose of the system has always been to attempt to level the playing field for golfers of differing abilities, so that those golfers can compete equally. For example, imagine someone whose average score is 92 trying to compete against someone whose average score is 72. Without a handicapping system, it can't be done. At least not fairly. With a handicapping system, the weaker player is given strokes on certain holes on a golf course. That is, on a particular hole the weaker play may be allowed to "take a stroke" - deduct a stroke - from his or her score for that hole. At the end of the round, the two players of differing abilities can figure their "net score" - their gross scores minus the strokes they were allowed to take on certain holes. The USGA Handicapping System received a major refinement in the early 1980s with the introduction of slope rating for golf courses, joining the longstanding course rating as methods of rating the difficulty of a course. Course rating is the number of strokes a certain set of tees are expected to be played in by the upper-half of scratch golfers. Sponsored Links A USGA Course Rating of 74.8 means that 74.8 is expected to be the average score of the best 50-percent of rounds played by scratch golfers. Slope rating is a number representing the relative difficulty of a course for bogey golfers compared to course rating. Slope can range from 55 to 155, with 113 being considered a course of average difficulty. Par plays no role in computing handicaps. Only adjusted gross score, course rating and slope rating come into play. Adjusted gross score is a golfer's total strokes after allowing for the maximum per-hole totals allowed under Equitable Stroke Control. A player's official USGA Handicap Index is derived from a complicated formula (that, thankfully, players themselves do not have to figure) that takes into account adjusted gross score, course rating and slope rating. With as few as five rounds, a player can get a handicap index by joining clubs authorized to issue them. Eventually, handicap index is calculated using the 10 best of a golfer's 20 most recent rounds. Once a USGA Handicap Index is issued - say, 14.8 - the golfer uses that to determine his or her course handicap. Course handicap - not handicap index - is what actually tells a golfer how many strokes they are allowed on a particular course. Most golf courses have charts golfers can consult to get their course handicap. Alternately, golfers can use various online course handicap calculators, such as the one here. All that is needed is a USGA Handicap Index plus the slope rating of the course. Once armed with course handicap, a golfer is ready to play on an equal basis with any other golfer in the world. To take part in the USGA Handicap System, a golfer must join a club authorized to use the system. Most golf courses have clubs that can issue handicap indexes, so finding one isn't that difficult. But just in case, the USGA allows golfers to form clubs without real estate, which may be a collection of as few as 10 friends who are willing to form a club with a handicap committee. Once in such a club, a golfer will turn in or post his or her scores following every round, most often electronically by using a computer in the clubhouse or, if the club uses the GHIN service, by using any computer. The club's handicap committee handles all the computations and should issue handicap indexes once a month.

What is a good handicap for a 18 hole golf course?

It depends how difficult the course is, and how good you are. Mens maximum is 28 and ladies 36.

If you are regularly fourteen over par what should your handicap be?

It depends completely on the competition scratch score for the course you are playing. But generally your handicap could range from 12 to as much as 18.

An average golf course would be how many miles?

The average golf course in the United States is approximately 7,200 yards, give or take a 100 depending on the handicap. --------------- You forgot to take into account the distance between holes which can add as much as 2000-3000 yards depending on the course. As someone who has played golf for 30 years (most of it walking) I would say the average distance to walk a course from the 1st tee to the 18th green is 6-7 miles.

What are the odds of a 18 handicap shooting 5 under par?

If you are talking gross score it is statistically impossible. Depending on course rating and slope a 18 handicap golfer probably averages around a 95. Keep in mind that the modern handicap system is based on your potential to score, not way you average score is. A golfer should only shoot his handicap one out of five rounds. According to Dean Knuth who created the course rating system someone who is a 18 handicap should only shoot 10 strokes better than their handicap 1 out of 37000 rounds. Each shot better goes up exponentially. For example nine strokes better is 1 in 3577 rounds. To shoot 23 strokes better would be greater than 1 in a billion rounds.

What is the easiest way of establishing golf handicaps for a golf league?

Have every player submit 10-20 of their most recent rounds (preferably on the course where the golf league will be held). Then, find the average between the scores given. That average number, minus 72 (or whatever par is on the course) is the persons handicap. make sense?

What is the difference between a championship golf course and an executive course?

What is the difference between executive and championship golf course?

A special design of golf course is the "executive" golf course (also known as a "par-3" course). This course differs from standard courses in that the majority of holes are Par 3 holes, with one or two Par 4 holes added and sometimes (though rare) a Par 5 hole. The executive course is designed for beginner or older golfers and those who lack the time to play a round on a standard course.
