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.

Participants will submit their USGA Handicap or international equivalent via electronic form that will be e-mailed to you. Tournament staff will use that factor to flight each team and all handicaps will be based on that information. The submitted Handicap will be evaluated and may be reduced accordingly if any of the following criteria are not met:

a. Entrant does not have twenty (20) scores posted for the calendar year
b. Entrant does not have one (1) tournament round posted in the last 12 months
c. Entrant does not have any scores posted after April 15, 2020
d. Entrant does not provided Handicap Committee with their Handicap Chairman contact information

If a participant’s handicap index for any reason is not an accurate reflection of the participants playing ability, it is THEIR responsibility to notify tournament officials prior to the event. A valid USGA handicap reflects all golf scores regardless of the course or conditions (as long as the round was played under the Rules of Golf), and must be formulated according to the guidelines established by the USGA. Any unusual posting procedures, such as ceasing to post scores for a period leading up to the event, may be grounds for adjustments or disqualification.

The Handicap Committee reserves the right to adjust a participant’s index prior to or during the event.

All participants are required to notify a tournament official of any handicap changes prior to the event and after verification forms are returned.

A difference of .1 in your index can result in one more or less strokes on a given day. Please ensure that the handicap provided is accurate to the decimal place.

Women will be allowed a handicap index up to 40.4 and men up to 36.4 as per the USGA policy.

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.
