GofersCap FAQ’s

Q: Is there a maximum score on a single hole that should be used in calculating a handicap?
A: This is referred to as Equitable Stroke Control. Since The Sandbagger does not require you to enter the par and your score for every hole it does not apply this for you. You should apply this yourself and enter your adjusted total score. Here are the Guidelines:


Handicap Maximum Number On Any Hole
0 or plus
1 through 18
19 through 32
33 and over
1 over par
2 over par
3 over par
4 over par
