Eaton Canyon Golf Club Policies and Procedures for Handicapping

The Handicap Committee within the golf club is responsible for enforcing all aspects of the World Handicap System, including the computation of each member’s Handicap Index. As a committee we will verify that all acceptable scores are reported for handicap purposes. All recorded scores will be made readily available for peer review and random scorecard audits will be performed.

Handicap Committee Members: Willie Weddle, Bill Larr and Marv Good. As a committee, we ensure compliance with the World Handicap System, including peer review. The majority of committee members, including the chair, consist of members of the Eaton Canyon Golf Club.

The Handicap Committee has set forth the following policies and procedures for all members using the World Handicap System:   

1.       Post all acceptable rounds, including 9 hole scores.

2.       Scores must be posted the same day the round is played.  

3.      World Handicap System  must be applied to all scores for posting purposes

What is an Acceptable Score?
             If 14 or more holes are played in an 18 hole round.

             If 7 to 13 holes are played, post a 9 hole round. Match play, stroke play and team                               
             competitions.

             If a player is requested to pick up when out of contention, including team competitions.

             If a player is disqualified from a competition but has an acceptable score it must be posted. 

All acceptable scores must be posted the same day as played using one of the following methods:
            Posting computer at any golf course utilizing GHIN handicap services.

            GHIN Mobile app.

            SCGA Mobile web page.

            scga.org website.

            ghin.com website IGN at any course not utilizing GHIN handicap services.

            Returned to the Handicap Chair/Handicap Committee for posting

Disciplinary Actions for failure to post or player manipulating their Handicap Index:
            First failure will result in a written warning.

            Second failure will result in the appropriate penalty round issued for scores not posted.

·     After your third failure to post your score or continued manipulation of the score file, further disciplinary action will be taken as the Handicap Chair and Committee deems fair and equitable. 

A player must earn a Handicap Index. No player has an inherent right to a Handicap Index without providing full evidence of ability to our golf club’s Handicap Committee. The Handicap Committee has the ultimate authority and obligation to adjust a Handicap Index if it feels necessary to do so.
