You can write down 103 and take it home to think about your game and enter the equitable stroke control # in the handicap computer like anyone else who maintains an official handicap. It's not hard to figure out.
I'm 90% sure you're complaining about something that's a solved problem, but you just haven't yet read up on how USGA handicaps work.
If I am an 11 handicap (on the course) and shoot 88 with all pars and bogey except 2 10's, and I'm playing low net with my weekend group I go into the bar and tell them I shot 77 net with regard to the money but I enter 82 (the equitable stroke control #) into the handicap computer for calculating my future handicap. The GHIN system does the rest. They'll even have a piece of paper on the wall next to the computer saying if your handicap is between so and so the most you can take on any hole is X.
