Chapter News and Announcements
  • Local News 

    Our chapter will have a Chapter Championship in late summer. It will be a 1 18-hole round and will be flighted.  It will be a day of fun and friendly competition to gain bragging rights! Watch for more info.  
    In late September we will have an 18-hole Match Play event.  It will be a fun and friendly game to learn about match play.  Watch for more info.

    New World Handicap System

    Starting in 2020, the maximum score you can post on any hole is a NET DOUBLE BOGEY. In other words, the maximum score for each hole is Double Bogey + any Handicap Strokes applied on that hole based on your Course Handicap.
     
    If you use the hole by hole posting option, the system will automatically calculate and make the adjustment for you based on the tees you selected. This is the recommended method for posting all scores.

    See the Handicap section for more info.  There will be a webinar on Saturday, April 18, at Noon for members to explain this new handicap system.
