Reporting Scores - Event and Handicap
During a round, each player enters his/her Gross Score for every hole on the scorecard. The event is scored based on these scores. Submitting a valid scorecard in the container on the Bulletin Board at Crab Meadow inputs your score for the event, but you still have to enter your score into the GHIN system for handicap purposes. Scores can be entered at the computer in the Pro Shop at Crab Meadow or online at www.ghin.com or www.mgagolf.org. Note: During Covid-19 scorecard submission is accomplished by sending a digital image by e-mail to the Tournament Coordinator.
Equitable Stroke Contol
When entering your scores into the GHIN system you must adhere to a set of rules called Equitable Stroke Control (ESC) which provides for a maximum allowable score on a hole based on your posted handicap. The maximum score that can be posted is Net Double Bogey, i.e., double bogey plus strokes allocated for that hole.
ESC score = Par + 2 + (strokes allocated) with the following proviso; no score may exceed par by more than 5 strokes. The tables below define the maximum ESC scores for the holes on Crab Meadow. When reporting scores for handicap purposes, if there are any holes for which your score exceeds the (ESC) limit for your posted handicap, you must adjust your reported score to agree with the table value.
