Rules of Handicapping FAQs

Posting Scores

Q. Are scores designated as “Competition” scores treated any differently?

A. Scores posted with a Competition, or “C” designation are not used any differently for the purposes of calculating a Handicap Index®.

The Competition score designation provides a way for Committees to evaluate if any players perform better or worse in competitive versus recreational rounds, which may be used during a handicap review.
