BV Handicap Hole Ratings

The BVGC has followed the USGA guideline for establishing handicap hole ratings. These ratings will be used in all BVGC tournaments starting with the April 18th NCGA 2-Man.

Following USGA Handicap Manual Section 17 and the section 17-b-ii process, 582 rounds of golf consisting of 10,476 hole-by-hole scores were analyzed from 10 BVGC tournaments from 2013 and 2014. This rating only affects the Men's White and Blue Tees.

The handicap distribution of players from 0->10 and from 17->25 were compared. The USGA goal is to "equalize the abilities of players of different abilities".
