Is my Handicap 4.8 is good

Is my 4.8 handicap is good

At our club we have an issue with members not entering scores in to the GHIN system.

Which scores need to be entered?

> Tournament Play

> Men's Association Group Play

> Friendly Golf Group

> Random Individual Play ( If played according to the rules of golf )

> Practice Rounds

My current handicap is 28. Is there a rule about entering a maximum score on a given hole as one totals his or her score for the round?

Question, I was told you take lowest 10 scores out of your last 20 and then multiply by 113. OK, I understand that part but I was also told you take your lowest 2 tournament scores but I don't understand how that works to get your handicap. Right now my GHINS is 9.3R and my two tournament scores are 74 70.3/128 and 76 69.0/125. Could you explain the tournament scores and how they are figured in?

Is this even legal?? Our home course has three holes where you tee off over water. One of the ladies in the league "was tired of losing balls in the water" so she had her handicap reconfigured with her teeing off from the gold tees (the drop zone). She now hits from there, but incurs no penalty strokes. She is hitting one from the gold tees (not age eligible for our club) and I am hitting one from the red tees and over the water. It just doesn't feel right, regardless of how many balls she has lost. Shouldn't she be taking a penalty stroke of some kind for this???

I am troubled that my handicap is the same from 5 different sets of tees. Our championship course is 1,500 yards longer than our senior course, yet, my handicap is the same. How is that possible?

they should NOT be the same; each set of tees SHOULD have their own different slopes

I've been told you never score more than a double bogey if your handicap is 18 or less and I've also been told you never score more than a 7 no matter what the par. This of course is for recording you score for handicapping, not for tournament score. Are either of these correct?

How is the handicap calculated when players are using different tees? Two players both with 4.8 index and playing a new course, would not even. or would they?
