Callaway Scoring System Explained

The Callaway  Scoring  System is used to handicap players in our weekly tournaments. The Tournament Management System calculates the average handicap using the 10 best scores of your last 20 rounds to update handicaps each week.

How this is done: A player's net score is determined after each round by deducting the worst individual holes during the first 16 holes, holes 17 and 18 may not be considered as worst holes. And no hole may be scored at more than twice its par. The table below shows the number of "worst holes" allowed by the player's gross score and the adjustment to be made based on the gross score. For example, if a player's gross score is 100, the player's 3 worst holes are deducted. Let's say a 7, 8, & 9 for a deduction of  24. In addition, the player's adjustment to the deduction is a +2 for a 26 total. Therefore, the player's net score is 74.
