Refer to handicap report below or the copy at the computer in the restaurant, to determine player handicap for competition. For 2019, 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. For those that have an established gold tee handicap(10 rounds), these tees can be used for non-match play events only. For match play events, add thee shots and play from white tees. Opening day, closing day and the member guest events, are played  from one set of tees. Please note members of 60 years of age and older, that are below the 9.0 index, can compete from the white markers. However, this is not in effect for the Championship Flights of the Club Championship, Pardee Cup, or gross division in the  Past Presidents Cup. 

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.
