Meet below hole one near Jay Lively before or at signup time. Check out the latest McPherson handicap averages.
Here is how it works: The first time a player comes out, he/she establishes their handicap (average) for the course. The cost is $6 + $1 for ace for established players, $2 + $1 for non-established. Current players who have bought their membership for 2017 receive $1 off their entry. At the end of the round, all the scores are entered and everyone’s handicap is calculated. We pay out the top 40-45% each week in Aspen Sports gift cards.
Every other week we use one of two methods to determine the groupings (usually foursomes). One week is random draw and the next is sorted by average scores so the groupings are tournament-like. So, if a player is averaging 58.5 (+4.5) and shoots a 54 (even par), then his/her result for that league is -4.5

After a player has ten recorded scores, the system drops the highest and lowest, averaging the remaining eight. If a player averages under par (which is 54), their remaining handicap is 80% of their average. For example, is a player averages 5-under 49, their handicap is 50.
We usually have a closest-to-the-pin prize and an optional ace pool and birdie club.
