Handicap Corner


Updates to players handicap are published via the USGA/CSGA on the 1st and 15th of each month during the active season, beginning on 4/15/18. Members will be activated in the GHIN system upon dues payment and processing.

Refer to handicap report below or the copy at the computer in the restaurant, to determine player handicap for competition. For 2018, 9.0  index and below will play from the blue marker teeing ground, 9.1 index and above play from the white marker teeing ground for competition. Refer to the posted handicap report to determine your handicap for competition, based what teeing ground you play from and have established a handicap from . Members 75 years of age and over have the option to compete from the gold teeing ground, deducting three strokes from the white tee handicap number in competition. We are looking into a gold tee handicap division for our members for 2019.

The USGA recommends that, when practicable, each player use the Handicap Index in effect at the time each round is played. If a competition spans a handicap revision date, the revised Handicap Index should be used in rounds following that date. ( Section 9). The NHGC follows this recommendation.

The following 2018 NHGC Tournaments should be posted as a TOURNAMENT SCORE… Designate with a (T) during the posting of score into GHIN…
