POSTING SCORES
Player’s Responsibility
A basic premise is that every player will try to make the best score at each hole in every round, regardless of where the round is played, and that the player will post every acceptable score, adjusted by Equitable Stroke Control, for peer review. RCGA Canadian scores are accepted from

April 15th to October 15th
Posting of Scores

All adjusted scores should be posted on the computer, immediately following your round of golf. Based on your scores, the computer program will assign you a Handicap Factor and a Course Handicap, specific to a set of tees. You are required to record a hole score for a hole not finished, a hole not played and to adjust any hole scored when it is higher than the maximum allowed under Equitable

STROKE CONTROL – Equitable Stroke Control
Equitable Stroke Control (ESC) sets a maximum number that a player can post on any hole depending on your Course Handicap. The purpose of adjusting scores is to prevent exceptionally bad holes from artificially increasing your handicap. There is no limit to the number of holes on which you can adjust your score. Adjust your gross, or total, score downward using the following chart
COURSE HANDICAP MAX ON ANY HOLE
9 or less Max 2 over par
10-19 Max score of 7
20-29 Max score of 8
30-39 Max score of 9
40 and over Max score of 10 Hole Not Finished : For handicap purposes, enter the most likely score which is the number of strokes to complete the hole, from that position, more than half the time. This should be preceded by an “X” on the score card and not exceed the ESC limit. Hole Not Played : For handicap purposes, enter par plus any handicap strokes you are entitled to receive on that hole.
WHAT SCORES SHOULD BE POSTED
EXAMPLES OF SCORES TO POST
(Active season April 15 the to October 31 st )

  • If 13 or more holes are played, post an 18 hole score.
  • If 7 to 12 holes are played, post a 9 hole score. (Your 9 hole score will be retained, combined with the next 9 hole score, and identified with a A C @ .)
  • Adjusted scores from all courses with an RCGA Course & Slope Rating or equivalent, made during their active season, at home or out of the country. Include the relevant Course Rating and Slope Rating.
  • Scores in both match play and stroke play .
  • Scores made in accordance with the principles of the Rules of Golf.

SOME UNACCEPTABLE SCORES

  • When fewer than 7 holes are played
  • An inactive season is in effect ( locally Nov 1 to Apr 14 )
  • Scores made on a course with no RCGA COURSE or Slope Ratingwhen the majority of holes are not played in accordance with the
  • Rules of Golf ( playing more than one ball or restricting the number of clubs which can be used, etc)
  • Posting of Scores
  • All adjusted scores should be posted on the computer, immediately following your round of golf.
REDUCTION OF HANDICAP BASED ON EXPECTABLE TOURNAMENT SCORES
The Handicap Committee shall apply the following steps to determine if there is a need for a reduction in Handicap Factor Calculate the differentials for tournament scores by subtracting the RCGA Course rating from each eligible tournament score; multiply the result by 113, and divide by the RCGA Slope rating for Each Course played. Round the final number to the nearest tenth for tournament scores.
Select the two lowest differentials for tournament scores. Subtract the second lowest of these differentials from the player’s current Handicap Factor. Continue to the next step if the result is 3.0 or greater.
Example: A player with a Handicap factor of 17.3 has three eligible tournament scores. The two scores, which produce the lowest tournament score differentials, are 82 and 83. They were made on a course with a course rating of 70.6 and Slope rating of 130.

Tournament Score – Course Rating 82-70.6 = 11.4
Difference x 113 11.4 x 113 = 1288.2
Result / Slope Rating 1288.2/130 = 9.9
Differential of Lowest Tournament Score = 9.9
Differential for Second Lowest (83-70.6) x113/130 = 10.8
Handicap Factor – Second Lowest Differential 17.3- 10.8 = 6.5
Since the difference of 6.5 is greater than 3.0 continue
Average the two lowest differentials for tournament scores. (9.9 + 10.8)/2 = 10.35
Subtract that number from the player’s Handicap Factor 17.3 – 10.35 = 6.95
Using the number derived in the above step and the total number of eligible tournament scores in the player’s record, enter the Handicap Reduction Table to determine the amount the player’s Handicap factor is to be reduced.
Value from Handicap Reduction Table = 5.0
RCGA Handicap Factor becomes 17.3 – 5.0 = 12.3 
The player’s handicap factor will show as 12.3R in the Handicap Computer.

HOW TO USE “PAR PLUS” FOR HOLES NOT PLAYED
Hole Not Finished  For handicap purposes, enter the most likely score. This is the number of strokes to complete the hole, from that position, more than half the time. This should be preceded by an A X @ on the score card and not exceed the ESC limit.
Hole Not Played : For handicap purposes, enter “par plus any handicap strokes” you are entitled to receive on that hole.

Example
 Joe & Bill stop playing after 14 holes because of lightning.

How do they complete the remaining holes for handicap purposes?

10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18
PAR 4 3 5 4 5 4 4 3 4 36 72
Joe 4 4 5 5 5 ? ? ? ?
Bill 5 3 7 5 7 ? ? ? ?
Handicap 7 11 15 5 9 13 3 17 1

Joe is a 10 handicap and Bill is a 20 handicap. They enter par plus the number of handicap strokes, each are permitted on each hole

10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18
PAR 4 3 5 4 5 4 4 3 4 36 72
Joe 4 4 5 5 5 4 5 3 5 40
Bill 5 3 7 5 7 5 5 4 6 47
Handicap 7 11 15 5 9 13 3 17 1

Joe receives one stroke on 16 and 18, while Bill gets one stroke on every hole and two on number 18.
