To properly calculate equitable handicaps for players competing from multiple tees, we will apply the directions found in

For these weekend's 2019 Memorial tournament at Royce Brook where we will allow some people to play in RED Tees:

The formula for the course handicap calculation is as follows:

In white Tour Course Handicap = (HI * Whiteslope/113) * 80%

In red Tour Course Handicap will be = ((HI * Redslope/113) - (WhiteCourseRating - RedCourseRating)) * 80%

where HI = HandicapIndex

and for Royce Brook East:

WhiteSlope = 126

WhiteCourseRating = 69.2

RedSlope = 116

RedCourseRating = 65.3

80% is our standard Handicap Allowance

RoyceBrook East does not have published Slope and Course Rating for Men on Red Tees, only for Ladies.

We applied USGA rule 5-2g to temporarily get Slope/CR = 116/65.3.

We extrapolated the chart to account for the difference of 873 yards between RED and WHITE Tees.

(White Tee Yardage = 5935, Red Tee Yardage = 5062, Difference in Yardage is 873)

 Yards Change in Course Rating Change in Slope 693 714 3.1 8 715 736 3.2 8 737 758 3.3 8 759 780 3.4 8 781 802 3.5 9 803 824 3.6 9 825 846 3.7 9 847 868 3.8 9 869 890 3.9 10 891 912 4 10

So Red CourseRating = White CourseRating -3.9 = 69.2 - 3.9 = 65.3
Red Slope = White Slope - 10 = 126 - 10 = 116

This results in the following calculations of Course Handicap for WHITE and RED Tees

 # Player H.I. White Tour CHcp Red Tour CHcp 1 Nestor 22.4 20 15 2 Ricky 18.8 17 12 3 Jimbo 16.2 14 10 4 Jerson 23.9 21 17 5 Ralph 18.8 17 12 6 Bong 13.2 12 8 7 Alex Rima 22 20 15 9 Alden 11.2 10 6 11 Ed Mendoza 15.3 14 9 13 Joey 14.6 13 9 15 Mario 16.2 14 10 17 Jess 10.6 9 6 18 Warren 16.2 14 10 19 Ed Amisola 10.3 9 5 21 Jun 23.9 21 17 22 Rupert 31.8 28 23

Players with no Handicap will continue to be computed with 80% of System 36 calculation.
