3/16/19 - from Handicap Chairman, Mike Steffy

 

On the Handicap front, there were to be major changes within the GHIN system this year.  They may still get implemented later this year, but for now the old GHIN system is being used.  That being said, WSGA has stopped support for the handicap labels and cards, so those will no longer be available from our home computer at MW.  However, all of that information is on your smart phones (Mobile GHIN app).  The World Handicap System you may have heard about will begin in 2020.

The New Rules of Golf are in effect now and hopefully you have attended one of the many seminars in our area.  If not, and as a refresher, Paul Halttunen has done a great job of posting those on this site under "Competition" tab with links to various sites and videos.

March 1st was the beginning of our active season so you may post scores made in our region.  When you finally get to venture out and play, please post all scores ASAP after your round.  The Mobile GHIN app is the easiest, and quickest way to do this.  Of course you may post on the MW computer, the computer of the course you are playing, or on line.  As a reminder, you cannot post if you play alone.

As you fill out your membership forms make sure we have your current e-mail address and phone #.  If you do not receive your Handicap revisions on the 1st & 15th, then we do not have a current e-mail for you.

If you are new to our club please see my welcome letter on this site under the "About Us" tab.  Feel free to contact me for any Handicap issues or questions.
