Handicaping Example

Let’s say that we have four golfers: Alex, Bob, Chris, and Dan, of various abilities who are in a competition against each other. Here are the players and their handicaps:

Alex14.8
Bob9.9
Chris1.5
Dan26.4

The course has the following slope and rating:

  • Rating: 70.9
  • Slope: 120

So, using the formulas above, here are their course handicaps (only the slope is used to determine the course handicap):

Alex16
Bob11
Chris2
Dan28


And, finally, here are their gross and their net scores:

Alex9175
Bob8675
Chris7472
Dan9971

Dan wins. He is the only one in the group who actually shot better than his handicap, so he deserved to win.
