Without trawling back through the thread, has it been mentioned that England Golf have released an app which shows all your stats?
There’s a version on App Store as well, plus you can add friends from other courses.
Not too sure if anyone has mentioned this on the thread, but the USGA for their world handicap state the equation as being:
Course Handicap = Handicap Index x (Slope Rating / 113) + (Course Rating – par)
subtle difference but can give you an extra shot.

And oddly via drunken student days:
9 to 5 by Dolly Parton. That gets cranked up to 11!
Hoofed it down last night! Local flooding meant most buildings at work were shut do we had to wfh. Saw some pictures of the golf courses near work and they were under water.
Fine where I actually live though and my golf course stayed open.
playing at West Derby on Thurs and the forecast has...
For the first time in a comp (mid week Medal) everything clicked. I knew it had been bubbling away close but last night I shot the lights out!
3 over gross (off 13)! Buzzing I’ve done it, just need to go out and do it again on Sat I’m board comp!
Blind tee shots can be a pain the first time you play there, but after that it means you can commit to the shot.
Not a fan of run off areas where they have left it rough half way into the run off. Just lazy.
Big peev is fake fountains in a lake. Why. Just why?
Another vote for Whinlatter park, lovely walks etc.. round there, been a few times now. If the weather is nice then swing past Aria Force waterfall as well. Also Coniston is nice, walk up the Old Man which isn’t too strenuous.
Powfoot every day of the week over Eden. Although personally I’d just eat it up, crack on to St Andrews and play there.
Mate rents the apartment at Thornhill GC and says they’ve lost the greens over the last couple of years (he also joined Powfoot). Lochmaben is ok. Tbh they are all a fair bit...
Our Captains was a 3 way tie yesterday. Count back handed it to the higher handicapper. Granted, not the way I’d like the captains comp to be won, I’d rather see a 3 hole pay off or something and see if you have a single, stand out winner.
But, rules are rules and everyone knew them before...
I wouldn’t say there’s any penalty there. Did player A say anything that they were going to mark their ball? Plus, it’s from 40 yards away! I could understand if it was closer, but at 40 yards I’d only be trying to get within 10 foot.
