Hole-in-One Club

Register for our Hole-in-One Club (see email invitation or request a new link by emailing bdgcnews@gmail.com).  The first member(s) to make a witnessed hole-in-one at Brown Deer during a Club major or a Club Championship, Cup, Senior Cup, 1st or 2nd team match will earn all funds collected (to help cover all the beverages you will need to buy...)!  If two or more registered members make an ace on the same day, they shall split the pot.

Registration for the next Hole-in-One Club will open upon the earlier of the day after a registered member(s) makes an ace or at the start of the next season.  Funds remaining at the end of a year will be carried over to the following year (and be subject to an additional $5 buy-in to win).  If the club is discontinued for any reason, funds collected from current members will be returned.

Watch for email invitations with a link to register beginning in March.

Handicap Reminders

Maintaining proper handicaps and playing by USGA rules are fundamental elements of our club.  Remember to post all acceptable scores played during the active season (April 1st to October 31st in Wisconsin; other states vary) using Equitable Stroke Control ("ESC").  However, the club will post scores for all Majors and Summer Tour events.    

The USGA announced key changes to its handicap system during 2016: USGA 2016 Key Handicap Changes

Note that scores when playing alone are no longer acceptable for handicap purpose.  Click here for more information: Playing Alone FAQ

Equitable Stroke Control:

            Course Handicap     Maximum Score per Hole

            9 or less                              Double Bogey

            10 through 19                           7

            20 through 29                           8           

            30 through 39                           9
