Handicap System

Handicap System

Levelling the playing field so anybody can win.

All club members will receive a handicap rating calculated from your last five official rounds at a Sydney Disc Golf Club hosted event (Armory & North Ryde – PDGA tournament or monthly social event). This rating will be used to calculate a handicap for each course layout and this handicap will be subtracted from your raw score to determine your handicap result. This means the person who plays much better than their average score will win the handicap competition.

The handicap rating (HR) is calculated using the following formula:

      HR = 1000 – [(round score – SSE) x RRE]

      SSE = scratch scoring estimate 
      RRE = round rating estimate

These factors have been calculated for each course based on a system developed by DG Course Review. Similar formulas are used to calculate a handicap score based on a player’s rating.

Here are the current handicap ratings for all club members (based on last 5 rounds). New members will receive a handicap rating after completing 3 events:
