  • World Handicap System
    On 1/1/20, new rules of golf handicapping was introduced in the United States. Prior to 2020, the maximum score you could post on a hole varied based on your Course Handicap. Starting in 2020, the maximum score you can post on any hole is a NET DOUBLE BOGEY. In other words, the maximum post-able score for each hole is Double Bogey + any Handicap Strokes applied on that hole based on your Course Handicap. In order to post properly, you need to be aware of each hole's stroke index allocation (formerly referred to as handicap-stroke hole). This can be achieved by "popping" your scorecard.
