Most people would agree that success at the workplace is just as much or more about relationships as it is about a person’s ability to get the job done. Just as it has been documented that our society is less involved in community based activities, it could be argued that a similar trend has occurred at the workplace. You are as likely to know as much about a fellow cubicle worker as you are about the person that lives in the apartment across the hall or the neighbor down the street. Getting to know your fellow workers can lead to better communication at work which, in turn, results in greater productivity and job satisfaction. You win, your co-workers win and your company wins. It’s a win-win-win situation. With this in mind, it makes sense that companies might also be interested in encouraging or even leading the charge when it comes to setting up a corporate golf league.
Why golf? Golf is a unique activity Continue reading
Course Handicap represents the number of strokes needed to play to the level of a scratch golfer—or the Course Rating of a particular set of tees. A Course Handicap is expressed as a whole number (11 for example).
Course Handicap is determined by using your Handicap Index and the Slope Rating of the golf course. You can calculate your Course Handicap using one of these methods:
You can try calculating your Course Handicap by using this handicap calculator:
Handicap Index multiplied by Slope Rating of tees played, divided by Standard Slope Rating (113) = Answer (rounded to nearest whole number, .4 rounds down and .5 rounds up)
Example: 8.6 Handicap Index x 134 Slope Rating / 113 Standard Slope Rating = 10.2 = 10 Course Handicap
It is a number, to one decimal place (e.g., 5.6), that is a generic (i.e., not tied to any one course) representation of a golfer’s game relative to par. So, for example, a golfer with a 5.6 Handicap Index means that that golfer could be expected to shoot somewhere between 5 and 6 strokes over par on any given day.
