Effective January 1, 2020, the new World Handicap System (WHS) is used to calculate handicaps. You will now want to post on the day you play as adjustments are made every evening for playing conditions.

ESC is gone. Instead, for your score posting purposes, the Maximum Hole Score (MHS) will be a net double bogey. That is gross double bogey, plus any handicap strokes the golfer is entitled to on that hole based upon the ranking of the stroke holes. Take the par of a hole, add 2 for double bogey, and then add any strokes (i.e., pops) the player gets on the hole. That gives you the Net Double Bogey.

PAR 3’s:
3 +2  =  5 max (if player doesn’t get any strokes)
3 +2 +1  =  6 max (if player gets one stroke on hole)
3 +2 +2  =  7 max (if player gets two strokes on hole)
 
Par 4’s:
4 +2  =  6 max (if player doesn’t get any strokes)
4 +2 +1  =  7 max (if player gets one stroke on hole)
4 +2 +2  =  8 max (if player gets two strokes on hole)
 
Par 5’s:
5 +2  =  7 max (if player doesn’t get any strokes)
5 +2 +1  =  8 max (if player gets one stroke on hole)
5 +2 +2  =  9 max (if player gets two strokes on hole)

EXAMPLE: A 25-handicapper gets two pops on the seven top ranked holes and one pop for the remaining holes. Their max score is double-bogey (par + 2) plus pops. The picture below shows the max score for a 25 handicapper.

Changes have also occurred to how handicaps are evaluated and how often they are updated. If you’d like to review the information Go to the NCGA website World Handicap System page. It has great information.
