i like the ida ..... so how dose the handicap play in to the scoring?....
What we do is use past data to determine what a 1000 rated player would shoot at a given course (SSA). Then we would use your player rating to determine what you should be shooting on this course. Your handicap is 80% of the difference.
Ex: Channahon Short Tees- SSA=45.95 Player Rating: 855 means on average you should shoot 57.81 57.81-45.95=11.86 80% of 11.86=9.49 which would be rounded to 9. This would be your handicap.
Your final score would be what you shot minus your handicap. We use this adjusted score to figure payouts and points.
Frank's & Bean's Tuesday Nights (Handicap-Singles League) Start date: April 19, 2011, Follow the same schedule as the doubles league. Same time and same place as the Wednesday Nights, but on Tuesday. $5 entry fee, optional Ace ($1) & CTPs (2-$2/CTP) = $5, CTPs will be designated as Prize Fund & Club Enhancements. The payout will be the top 30% with a minimum of $5 for last cash. $0.50 from each entry fee will pay the hot round of the day. This year, the club will be matching the Club Enhancement CTPs money for a 3rd CTP which will be free to all current J-Town Disc Golf Club members. Handling of non-rated players: If you do not have a PDGA rating, your first 3 rounds at the handicap leagues will be free to establish your handicap. You will only be allowed to participate in the Ace Fund, CTPs, and Bag Tags (Bag Tags will be determined on the scratch score). Another option to acquire your handicap; if a club officer is willing to play those three rounds outside of league night. After you accumulate more rounds your rating will be taken from your best 3 of your last 5 rounds. Frank Grimes, Dean Bingham, and Dave Kociuba will be running it.

So if you want to play make sure you sign up for J Town Disc Golf Club and then let me know you are a current member. If you are current and you want to play let me know. Thanks Thor
Any update on the roster? Do we have a complete team yet? Is Sr really going to play for both clubs? Why aren't there any J-Town pros on this list? We really are going to need a strong team if we think we are going to to have any chance of J-Town victory on Fox Valley's home course.
Contact Thor to sign up for this and represent the club. Anyone who is not current yet, can sign up as late as the day of the event.
