If you're new to the system and posting your initial three scores to establish your Handicap Index®, the maximum hole score you can post is par + 5.
Once your Handicap Index has been established, the maximum hole score for posting purposes is a net double bogey, equal to double bogey + any handicap strokes you receive based on your Course Handicap™.
