Handicap allowances are an essential aspect of golf, as they are designed to provide equity for players of all levels of ability in each format of play, whether that be 9 holes or 18 holes. Essentially, a handicap allowance is used to adjust a player’s Course Handicap to determine their Playing Handicap. The aim is to level the playing field, so that players of different skill levels can compete on an equal footing.
Traditionally, the calculation of a handicap allowance would be done using a separate chart or by manual calculation. This would involve providing a separate piece of paper with the reduced handicap conversion table, or asking the player to calculate it manually. This can be time-consuming and may not always be the most convenient option.
However, with the new option in the How Many Strokes Management system, this process has become much more streamlined. The system allows Clubs to set up a separate Course with a reduced handicap for each Tee Box, for both men and women. This makes it much easier to quickly and accurately calculate a player’s handicap allowance, and ensures that the process is fair and equitable for all players.
In addition, the Course name can be the match format or the percentage of the handicap allowance, which makes it easier to keep track of the different handicaps for different players and formats of play. Overall, this new option in the How Many Strokes Management system greatly simplifies the process of calculating handicap allowances, and helps to ensure that golf is a fair and enjoyable experience for players of all skill levels.
