Equitable Stroke Control

Equitable Stroke Control (ESC) is a procedure whereby abnormally high individual hole scores are adjusted downward prior to the score being posted. ESC sets a maximum number that a golfer can post on any hole, depending on the golfer's Course Handicap (not his Handicap Index). Effective Feb. 1, 1998, individual hole scores will be adjusted for handicap purposes per the following table:


Course Handicap

Maximum Number on Any Hole

9 or less

Double bogey

10 through 19

7

20 through 29

8

30 through 39
