BLIND BOGEY
HANDICAP SCORING for Old River Golf Course
A popular onetime handicap that's based
upon a player's score for the event when formal and established
handicaps are simply unavailable.
Here's how it works:
Unknown to the players before their round,
six holes are chosen somewhat at random. Usually a par3, a par4
and a par5 from our front nine, and a 2 par4s and a par3 from
our back nine.
The players actual score is subtracted
from par on each of those holes.
The differences are added together and
multiplied by 2. Total equals handicap.
Subtract your handicap from your gross
score to compute your NET SCORE.

Gross Score of 107 minus Handicap
of 36 = 
71 
Tie Breakers  3 levels
 1. The back nine total minus half the
players handicap. Low score wins
 2. The middle six holes total (7 thru
12) minus 1/3 of the players handicap. Low score wins
 3. The two scorecards are compared starting
at the 18th hole and working backwards.
As soon as one player has a lower hole
net score, he/she is declared the winner.
