no, because it holds up everybody else. 15+ handicappers should have their own course hidden away where others can't find it

x2! That's one thing I always loved about Oakland Hills Country Club. They were very strict on having a 4 hour club. If you weren't on it, the ranger would give you a warning. Second time he comes buy he'll take you off the course. That's the way it should be everywhere.

if I was on a course and somebody in front of me was shooting a 160-180, I would be on my phone with the clubhouse until those people were removed.

That's equivalent of driving on I-75 with a moped.

They need to look up the USGA Equitable Stroke Control(ESC). Here I did it for you...

http://www.usga.org/handicapping/art...rol-Procedure/

Quote:
USGA Position Paper on the Equitable Stroke Control Procedure


Over the years, many refinements have been made to the USGA Handicap System including the procedure of adjusting individual hole scores for handicap purposes. Equitable Stroke Control (ESC) sets a maximum number that a player can post on any hole depending on the player's Course Handicap.

In the fall of 1997, the USGA Executive Committee met to discuss the status of the current fixed score procedure of Equitable Stroke Control. Over the years, the USGA formally surveyed member clubs nationwide. Our surveys showed that clubs were satisfied with the current ESC procedure because it was simpler to use. However, opinions were expressed to the USGA by golfers, golf clubs and golf association that it didn't seem right that the single-digit Course Handicap player was not able to post a double bogey on a par-5 but was permitted to post a triple bogey on a par-3.

In 1997, 12 state and regional golf associations throughout the country were authorized to test a modified par based system that addresses the concerns and comments that had been expressed. After a year of testing, results showed no significant change to a player's USGA Handicap Index, as expected.

Therefore, the Executive Committee concluded that the ESC procedure would remain the same, with the exception that a player with a Course Handicap of 9 or less could record a maximum of double bogey on any hole. Not only will this satisfy the single digit player's concerns, but it will also allow the rest of the current procedure to remain unchanged. With this change, the average Handicap Index of a single-digit player may increase by fifteen one-hundredths of a stroke. The new ESC procedure is as follows:

Course Handicap Maximum Number On Any Hole
9 or less.....................Double Bogey
10 through 19...............7
20 through 29...............8
30 through 39...............9
40 or more...................10
