Q: Is there a maximum score on a single hole that should be used in calculating a handicap?
A: This is referred to as Equitable Stroke Control. Since The Sandbagger does not require you to enter the par and your score for every hole it does not apply this for you. You should apply this yourself and enter your adjusted total score. Here are the Guidelines:


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

A: Yes contact Sandbagger Media for pricing.

Q: I sometimes only play 9 holes can I enter this into the handicap system.
A: Slope and Rating are usually calculated for a full 18 of a course. Entering a score for nine holes will make your handicap incorrect.

Q: Instead of the USGA calculated handicap can the calculation formula change to something like averaging the best 4 rounds out of 6?
A: We used the USGA formula because it is the most widely used handicap formula. If you would like a site that uses a custom formula contact Sandbagger Media Ltd.

      A course cannot be deleted. You can change the course to a different one using the Edit course feature. This will change the name of the course you entered scores for in earlier rounds.

      When you are an administrator and create a group you are automatically a member of that group. Any members you create through the “Add Members” button will also automatically be members of your created group.

      You can only view members of your groups scores if you are the admin of the group. Any member of the group however can view group members handicaps.

      Different tees will have a different slope and rating, therefore to enter scores from different tees you will have to pick the tee for one set of golfers and enter the scores and then do the same for the other tees and set of golfers.

    I removed a member and wanted to add him back in with a different user name but it won’t let me saying e-mail address already used. Any ideas how to remedy this?

      1. FergyFore

        The group name is Golf Rx and the user name I removed was KevinKT and the email address is ktkellner@aol.com.
        You can either activate him and change the user name to Knockdown Kevin with the same email address or delete everything and we will start over.
        Let me know what you need me to do. Thanks.

    Trying to obtain a group membership and it says “This transaction cannot be processed. The merchant’s account is not able to process transactions.” What does this mean?

    I errantly posted some of the group two times. When I try to delete one of the scores with the same date, same course, and same score the program spins and then jumps to my own scores.

    So, I want to delete a single round for a single player. How do I do this?

    1. Dude

      Just tested without a problem. Going to Administer group and view scores of a member in my group and deleting a score.

      Cannot reproduce the issue. Perhaps try a different browser.

      1. dennisconway

        I use Chrome.
        Just switched to Firefox as you suggested, but the result is the same.
        I hit the DEL square and it shifts to my individual scores, but doesn’t delete the intended golfers duplicate score.
