Handicaps:
1. Weeks 1 and 2 will not have any handicaps.
2. Before week 3 each player will be requested to play an additional 3 rounds with another non-friend member of the league and submit scores.
3. After 5 rounds have been recorded, an average handicap will be applied for week 3 and after.
4. Frisco SSE (scratch scoring estimate) will be 52 with hole 15 in the short position and 53 with 15 in the long position. All holes will be a par 3 unless 15 is in the long position. SSE is set at a -2 score.
5. If more than 25% of the league score at or under the SSE in any given night the SSE will fall one stroke for the rest of the league play.
6. The average of every players 5 best scores will be used to calculate their handicap for the next night.
7. Handicaps will be calculated by Your score minus SSE x .8
8. Example- you score 56 on the first night (56-52 = 4 x .8 = 3.2) Once 5 scores have been posted your average handicap will take place on week 3. If you scored the exact same all 5 recorded games (not likely) your handicap would be 3.2 strokes (rounded to the nearest tenth). So, if for week 3 you again posted a 56 your net score would actually be 52.8
9. Handicaps will even the field substantially, but if you play consistently you will benefit from the handicap. As more rounds are recorded and you lose your worst scores, your handicap will be reduced.
