Golf Conversion Chart - Equitable Stroke Control (ESC)

Do you want to know your handicap at different courses that you play.
All you need to know is (1) your handicap index and (2) the slope on any golf course (the slope is on the scorecard).
When you go to the USGA site below you do not need to log in or register to use the calculation table.

Click on this Conversion Chart link and type in your personal handicap index on the first line (this is a decimal number) or any decimal number if full table is checked.
and the slope for that course on the second line (not the rating & the rating is always a decimal number).
Also click the box "Display Full Course Handicap Table".
Hit "Calculate" and and all handicaps will show up for this course.

By selecting "display full course handicap table" your friends playing with you will know their course handicap if they know their index.

=====================================================================================================================================

On JANUARY 1, 2020, the Equitable Stroke Control is no longer, we will be using the new World Handicap System
which is "Net Double Bogey" which is a double bogey plus the dots you get on that hole is the maximum you can take on that hole.
Here is a chart for any course that will help you with W.H.S.

=======================================================================================================

YOUR STOKES PER HOLE ARE NOW BASED ON "Net Double Bogey plus Strokes"
The very best way to post scores is to load the USGA GHIN app on your phone and post your score hole by hole and
the reason to do this is that the app knows what your max is per hole and will make adjustments for you.

THIS WAS THE OLD SYSTEM BELOW AND IT NO LONGER WORKS.

18 HOLE COURSE HANDICAP MAXIMUM NUMBER ON ANY HOLE
This is the maximum strokes you can take on any hole directly related to your handicap.
