 RGHS Standard Computation Method

The Recreational Golf Handicap System is a formula applied to a set of scores and produces a Base Handicap.  The Base Handicap is portable and is translated to a Tee Handicap relative to course difficulty.  The formula is proprietary and is not published.  However, it is applied equally to all who use it.  By default, the RGHS selects the best scores per the following chart:

Number of 9-hole scoresNumber of best scores used in Base Handicap calculation
 1 or 2
 3 or 4
 5
 6 or 7
 8 or 9
 10
 11 or 12
 13 or 14
 15
 16 or 1710 
 18 or 1911 
 2012 

The RGHS is based on 9-hole scores.  So, if you use the system for 18-hole play, all 18-hole scores are reduced to two 9-hole scores, which are then applied to the chart.  In effect, 9-hole Base Handicaps are computed from the best twelve of the last twenty 9-hole scores, and 18-hole Base Handicaps are computed by multiplying the 9-hole Base Handicap by 2.

Note:  The RGHS does not use any components of the USGA Handicap System including Slope and Course Rating.  The RGHS is designed to be completely apart from the USGA's system so there would be no conflict or overlap between them.
