Digitla conversion tabel vs. printet conversion table

We see golfers more likely to try another Tee when using a digital conversion table

Many golf players face a dilemma when choosing a tee box for their round. They may wonder if they should play from the back tees to challenge themselves, or from the forward tees to enjoy a shorter and easier course. However, choosing a tee box is not just a matter of preference or ego. It also affects the course handicap, which is the number of strokes a player receives or gives based on their handicap index and the difficulty of the course. Therefore, playing from a different tee box can change the course handicap significantly. For example, if a player has a handicap index of 15 and plays from the back tees with a slope rating of 130 and a course rating of 72, their course handicap is 17. However, if they play from the forward tees with a slope rating of 115 and a course rating of 68, their course handicap is 13. This means that they would receive four fewer strokes on their scorecard if they play from the forward tees. This information can help golf players make an informed decision about which tee box to choose. They can see how much their course handicap changes by playing from different tees, and how that affects their chances of scoring well. Whit a digital conversion table they can see at a glance how many strokes they would gain or lose by moving forward or backward, and how that compares with other players. This can also encourage them to try different tees from time to time, and experience the course in new ways. Choosing a tee box is an important decision that can affect the enjoyment and the outcome of a golf round. By knowing their course handicap for all tee boxes, golf players can make an informed decision that matches their abilities and expectations.

Reduced Handicap

Show Reduced Handicap

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. The Course name can be the match format or the percentage of the handicap allowance: Reduced handicap table with match forms
