Posting of Scores: Effective 01/01/94

Par + Double Bogie

10 through 19

7

20 through 29

8

30 through 39

9

40 or more

Example: A player with a USGA Handicap Index of 19.2 plays a slope course, which gives that player a Course Handicap of 20. For handicap purposes, that player is allowed a maximum score on any hole of 8. There is no limit to the number of holes reduced to 8 in the round, so the player can quickly scan her scorecard to locate any hole scores of 9 or higher and reduce them to a score of 8, o matter what the par of any hole may be. *This applies only when posting scores.
