Equitable Stroke Control (ESC)

puts a cap on individual hole scores for handicap purposes in order to make your handicap more representative of your ability. ESC puts a limit on how many strokes you can take on a hole depending on your Course Handicap. ESC is applied to all scores, including tournament scores. Below is the maximum number of strokes allowed per hole, based on Course Handicap:
Course Handicap Maximum Score
