Association members must have a USGA handicap maintained at The Captains; the handicap season starts April 1st.
The USGA Handicap System enables golfers of differing abilities to compete against each other on an equitable basis. Remember, you
only play to your handicap 25% of the time!
POST ALL SCORES The handicap formula selects your 10 BEST rounds
out of the last 20; a few bad rounds have little impact on your handicap.
SNOWBIRDS - POST WINTER SCORES When you return to The Captains, post all scores* made in locations where the handicap season is active.
If you use the same GHIN # down south & at The Captains, the scores
will carry over. *You only need to post the last 20 scores
If you complete: 13 or more holes - post an 18-hole score
At least 7 holes - post a 9-hole score
For holes you don't complete: Post PAR + HCP STROKES you
would've received on those holes.
Unfinished Holes and Conceded Strokes
A player who starts, but does not complete a hole or is conceded a
stroke must record for handicap purposes the most likely score. The most likely score may not exceed the player's Equitable Stroke Control limit, defined in Section 4-3. This most likely score should be preceded by an "X."
USGA 18-Hole Equitable Stroke Control
