HANDICAPS

The Board of Directors of the RBIMGC has established the policy that Tournament participation for those with a course handicap greater than 40 will do so at a handicap of 40.

In the interest of speed of play all Club members entered in tournament play are expected to maintain indices of no greater than 36.4. Golf lessons can readily be arranged with the Pro Shop to assist in achieving lower indices. In accordance with newly-adopted World Handicap System, the SCGA will update any member’s official golf index following the posting of each golf score.  Handicap indices and the last 20 posted rounds are available on the GHIN/SCGA Internet web site using your SCGA number: http:// www.SCGA.org.

New members who have a recent handicap index from another club affiliation, whether associated with the SCGA or another recognized golf association, may submit documentation to the RBIMGC Handicap Committee to have their index transferred to the Club’s SCGA account.  New members without a prior index will receive a SCGA membership number which will allow them to begin posting their golf scores into the SCGA handicap system computer.  Once a minimum of five scores have been posted, the SCGA handicap system will compute a new member’s first golf index, which is then updated in accordance with the World Handicap System by the SCGA as more golf scores are posted.  A new member may also obtain an index by submitting five or more attested 18-hole scores to the Handicap Committee. A temporary index will then be established by the Handicap Committee that can be used by the new member to participate in RBIMGC tournaments.  Until the establishment of an official index, no new member is eligible to win any prize awards from participating in Club tournaments. Once a member receives his GHIN/SCGA membership number, that member’s Monday RBIMGC tournament scores will automatically be entered into the SCGA handicap system by each tournament’s Tournament Director (TD). Other than official RBIMGC Monday tournaments, members are responsible to post all their golf scores into the SCGA handicap/score computer system. This system requires that all 9- and 18-hole scores, both at home and away, be entered (posted) into the computer provided at each SCGA-rated  course. Scores can also be posted via the Internet at the GHIN/SCGA website, http://www.SCGA.org.  The Club’s Handicap Committee is empowered to impose penalties for failure to electronically post all scores – both 9 and 18 holes of play – on a timely basis (within 2 days following a round of golf).  HANDICAP/INDEX PROCEDURES
