Handicap Requirements

The tournament will be conducted using the USGA Slope Handicap System. Entrants’ handicap indexes will be used to establish a daily handicap based on the USGA slope rating of the course played along with the respective daily team format.

A handicap verification form will be included in each mailed participant confirmation packet. The form, along with the required documents must be returned to tournament headquarters at the instructed time. The participant must clearly indicate his/her most current 18-hole handicap index and include a list of scores used in the calculation of the handicap. If a participant does not have an established USGA Handicap index, please send no less than 10 of your MOST RECENT scorecards with the submitted handicap verification form. DO NOT SEND IN SCORE CARDS OR HANDICAPS WITH YOUR ENTRY. If you send in scorecards, the Handicap Committee will establish an index for you that is subject to reductions.

Handicap Monitoring

Any participant found, at any time, to be using a fraudulent handicap will be expelled from the tournament and all fees will be forfeited.

In addition, players who score exceptionally low scores will have their handicap reviewed and adjusted if necessary on a daily basis. Any player who scores exceptionally low scores after being adjusted may be disqualified. Any players disqualified will forfeit all paid tournament fees. All decisions of the Tournament Committee are final.
