Handicap Reminders

Maintaining proper handicaps and playing by the rules of golf 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 regions vary).  Upon posting three scores, you will have an active handicap for use in club competitions. 

However, for Brown Deer Men's Golf Club group events scored using BlueGolf (the "Majors", Summer Classic, Spring Tour, Summer Tour and Fall Tour), the Committee will post all scores for the field.  If in doubt at an event, ask if your score will be posted or if you need to do so.     

The Handicap Committee within our golf club is responsible for administering the USGA Handicap System. 
The primary goal of the system and the Committee is to enable golfers of differing skill levels to compete on an equitable basis.   The committee will verify that scores are properly posted for handicap purposes and peer review and is authorized to adjust players' indexes as documented in the Official Rules of Handicapping

Effective January 1. 2020, the World Handicap System (WHS) unified six handicap systems and provides every player in the world with a consistent measure of ability. The WHS enables players of different abilities globally to compete against others on a fair basis.  The Rules of Handicapping replaces the USGA Handicap System, which has been in place since 1911, and the USGA Course Rating System has become the Course Rating System.

Note that scores when playing alone are not acceptable for handicap purpose.  Click here for more information: Playing Alone FAQ
