For those of you who keep an official handicap, do you play on the same course on a regular basis? I would think that would have an enormous impact on your score.
As you play a course more, you become more familiar with the intricacies, especially the green. Knowing how a green will break from experience compared to putting on it the first time can account for several strokes per round.
Additionally, is it OK to register your handicap by playing on an executive course? There is a course in my area that is very short, almost all par-3's, and the par-4's are all reachable from the tee, but it still has a slope rating.
The point is, once you leave these courses your score will be significantly effected, so shouldn't this be reflected in your handicap?
