Home Course(s)

Lets you set the course\tees for which a course handicap is calculated. According to the USGA, a golfer does not play off his USGA Index. Rather, he converts the USGA Handicap Index to a Course Handicap and plays off the Course Handicap. The formula for conversion is Handicap = Index  X  (Slope of course / 113).  That is, the course handicap equals the golfer's index times the slope of the course and tees being played divided by 113.

The first (top) course on this form is the Primary Home Course and is displayed as the handicap on all lists and reports. You can also set and display home course handicaps for up to 5 additional course\tee boxes. These Additional Course Handicaps can be displayed on any custom list view or custom report.

Example: Set the 5 (or fewer) Additional course values to whatever course and tee you choose. Click the View menu and select Custom Views. Load the Many Course Handicap view. You will see up to 6 handicaps for each golfer on the screen.
