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.

Now that you know your handicap at this new golf course, you can use the chart below to do your Equitable Stroke Control before posting your scores.
