A Sneak Peek — World Handicap
There are several items to keep in
mind as we prepare for the new World
Handicap System set to debut in 2020.
Below is a sneak peek of what’s to come.
1) The minimum number of scores
to establish a Handicap Index will be
three 18-hole rounds made up of any
combination of 9 or 18-hole scores. A
new player establishing a Handicap
Index will use PAR + 5 as their
maximum score per hole.
■ Current system requires five
18-hole rounds (or 10 nine-hole scores
2) For a full scoring record of
20 scores, the system will take the 8
lowest score differentials to calculate
the Handicap Index.
■ Current system takes 10 lowest
3) When abnormal playing
conditions cause scores to be unusually
high or low on a given day, a Playing
Conditions Calculation, or PCC, will
adjust score differentials to better
reflect the player’s actual performance.
■ Current system has no
4) Net Double Bogey (or Double
Bogey Plus) will be used when a player’s
actual score or most likely score exceeds
a maximum number derived using the
following formula. All players, no matter
their Course Handicap, will use Net
Double Bogey: Net Double Bogey = Par
+ 2 +/- Handicap strokes received or
given on a hole
■ Current system uses Equitable
Stroke Control & can change
according to the Course Handicap
range in which the player falls
5) The Maximum Handicap Index
for men and women will be 54.0. This
will encourage more novice golfers to
get a Handicap Index.
■ Current system has a max of 36.4
for men and 40.4 for women
6) Under the World Handicap
System, a Handicap Index will update
daily. This feature should encourage
golfers to post their scores
immediately following their round.
■ Current system updates Indexes
on the 1st and 15th of each month

the community is great.
At the risk of exaggerating just a bit, even in winter
there must be a million reasons to live here.
Example number one is the heated, indoor pool.
Example number two all the great opportunities you’ll ﬁnd
like our Aqua Aerobics program (part of a full calendar of activities)
as well as ﬁne dining, maintenance-free living & more.
And if you need a little help, we offer assisted living services, too.
We invite you to see it all for yourself.
Year-round fun in our heated indoor pool.
Join us for a complimentary lunch & community tour.
Please call 503.925.4968 to schedule.
It’s a great way to get to know us!
