The handicap league offers players the opportunity to play competitive singles rounds with players of varying abilities. Though only a single division is offered, in any given week a player that is playing well for his skill level has the chance to win.
Handicaps will be based off your five most recent recorded rounds. If you don't have any recorded rounds, a handicap will be derived off your PDGA rating (or a rating 900 if you have no rating). A score of 46 on the shorts is considered a scratch score. This will be your raw handicap for the shorts.
For league play, the handicap used will be based off 80% of your raw handicap.
We have formulas for converting scores and handicaps to handle the long tees.
Handicaps are also subject to limits to prevent people from gaming the system. These limits may be revised from time to time if it becomes a problem (so far it has not).
The league is a PDGA sanctioned league. All PDGA members will receive points and ratings based on their performance. The Fox Valley Metro Disc Golf Club has picked up the tab for the sanctioning fee to keep costs down. Note: There is NO PDGA non-member fee for sanctioned leagues!
