The other golfers can either make up the round with you or use it as a practice round

Scorecards turned in after Thursday of any given week will not be accepted
Pre-PlayThere are no accommodations for Pre-Play
HandicapWorld Handicap System (WHS) handicaps will be used for all golfers
If you don’t have an established handicap, you can still play with us, but you won’t qualify for prizes or points.
Monday night handicaps will be used for each golfer’s Tuesday score (no matter if they play on Tuesday, or later with a make-up round)
Golfers who do not have a WHS handicap will need to establish one before being able to compete for prizes in league (they can still play, just not for prizes or for DefEx Points)
Establishing handicaps is now much easier than before with only 54 holes (three rounds) required to establish. Please check out any of the options below or a local golf course as they usually offer some incentive to join their ‘club’ that includes a handicap with WHS.
You can establish a handicap with any of the following organizations:
TheGrint – https://thegrint.com
NCGA / GHIN – https://ncga.org/join-renew/
