CALLAWAY HANDICAP SCORING for Old River Golf Course

  • The Callaway Method applies a one-time handicap that's actually based upon a player's score for the event.
  • Now this may sound very strange and seemingly impossible to do. But in practice, Callaway actually works very well when formal and established handicaps are simply unavailable.
  • Here's how it works:

As each player turns in a score card for the round, an official scorer utilizes
a "Callaway Table" to determine each golfer's net score for the round.

1. "Adjust Gross Score" No player may score more than a Double-Par on any hole.
      EXAMPLE OF AJUSTED GROSS SCORE
      (Player shoots 107 which is adjusted to 104 before computing net score)
