Dear Members of the Disc Golf Community,

If you have taken the time to browse through the previous posts relating to handicap calculations, you will likely be wondering what the "Course Handicaps" are for the various course configurations that we typically will play, and just what this number means.

The handicap system compares scores reported by any player on a specific course configuration to a course handicap, which is a score that a player with a scratch handicap would be expected to score equal to or better than. The course handicap is not a course record, and it is not necessarily a whole number either. It is essentially a score that represents a technically perfect round.

The scratch value for a course does not change with the weather or the time of year. It stays the same regardless of the time of day, or the people that play the course.

The following values have been set for course handicaps in determining player handicaps:

Jacques Cartier Park:
2004-2005 Blue Teepads: 41.9
2004-2005 Yellow Teepads: 45.0
2006 Blue Teepads: 40.1
2006 Yellow Teepads: 43.5

Camp Fortune Disc Golf:
2006 Short Teepads: 46.2
2006 Long Teepads: 51.4
2006 Short 1-14: 37.1*

*CF Short 1-14 differentials are adjusted by a 146 slope to account for the incomplete course.
