Keeping Score:

Remember that your game scores should be posted on the RCGA
site within two weeks of you having played the round.  Handicaps
will be used on club nights after new members have had an opportunity to establish a handicap.  Your RCGA Handicap Factor
must be converted to your handicap by using the sheets
(men or ladies) posted on the wall near the computer.  You may
also use the Course Handicap Calculator on the RCGA site.

Please feel free to approach any Executive Member with any
questions or email - gouletgolf@myaccess.ca


Member Responsibility:

As a member of the Goulet Golf Club, you are asked to maintain your scores on the computer at the club house, in order to establish a registered handicap. 


Why do you need a handicap? 

If you are a "social" golfer, you probably don't.  However, if you want to play in any SGA sanctioned tournament or any handicapped tournament (including those put on by the Goulet Golf Club), you will need one.  Also, if you want a better chance at winning on club nights when Handicaps are being used, we recommend that you put all your scores into the computer (from any golf course), and establish a handicap.  Otherwise,you are playing with a 0 handicap when others playing with a handicap can subtract their handicap from their overall score. 

Believe me, it can make a big difference!   You are hurting yourself by not keeping your handicap accurate and up to date.  At the very least, you can monitor how muchyour game improves over the golf season!

Before you can enter your scores in the computer, you will need to learn about
Equitable Stroke Control (ESC).


Equitable Stroke Control: For entering an 'ESC Adjusted Gross Score' only.

Most golf courses have been rated by the SGA for slope and will vary from course to course and from back tee boxes to forward tee boxes.  Slope refers to the difficulty of the course.

Before you enter your score in the computer, you must first calculate your equitable strokes. 
A score for any hole is restricted to a maximum number of strokes over par depending
on your handicap, using the tables below:


OLD EQUITABLE STROKE CONTROL     NEW EQUITABLE STROKE CONTROL
    (Obsolete as of March 1, 2012)                    (effective March 1, 2012)

0 or Plus Course Handicap  -     Max of 1 over par   9 or Less Course Handicap -  Max of 2 over par
1-18 Course Handicap -             Max of 2 over par  10-19 Course Handicap -         Max score of 7
19-32 Course Handicap -           Max of 3 over par  20-29 Course Handicap -         Max score of 8
33 and over Course Handicap - Max of 4 over par  30-39 Course Handicap -         Max score of 9
40 and over Course Handicap - Max score of 10


Equitable Stroke Control:  For entering 'Hole-by-hole Scores' only

If you choose to enter your scores via the “Hole-by-hole Score” method, you do not need to calculate your Equitable Stroke Control.  The system will do this for you when you hit submit.  Please refer to “Entering Scores:  Hole-by-Hole” for more detail.


Scorecards:

For all club nights and club tournaments, you will need to know a few other items:Sign your scorecards with your first and last names (legibly please)  You should exchange your scorecard with someone in your foursome - this is required for club   tournaments.  Mark your 18 hole index someplace on your scorecard.  Make sure your scorecard is attested (signed) by the person keeping your score.  Make sure you sign your own scorecard as well.  Hand your scorecard into either the scorekeeper, or to the scorecard box, as soon as you return to   the club house.
Enter your scores into the Ringer Book (binder at clubhouse).  Don't forget to enter your adusted score into the computer!
