The new "World Handicap System" will begin January 2020.

Information available here WHS.

Members must play a minimum of two JHGA tournaments prior to the Club Championship to be eligible to compete for the "Club Champion" title.

2019 default tees for tournament play:
Default tees are determined by the following. Index 7.4 and less will play from Gold tees; Index 7.5 thru 13.4 will play from the Blue tees; Index 13.5 thru 19.4 will play from the White tees; Index 19.5 through 29.4 will play from the Red tees. Members with handicap index of 29.5 and above can play from the Fairway Tees,(the Red tees on the four par three holes), while competing in the Red Tee group.

(last 9, 6, 3,1, holes):
This is how we will break ties when not using extra holes play off. If two players tie with scores, the course back 9 holes score will count as the tie breaker. If these two players are tied on the last 9, we will move onto the last 6, 3, and 1 hole(s) until we find a winner. If there still is no winner, then there will be a tie.

Members have three options to post scores.
By computer in the pro shop, the GHIN website at on your home computer, or install the GHIN mobile app on your phone. From your home computer and the mobile app type in your GHIN number and last name to post the score there. Your GHIN number will be on the handicap report that is displayed on the website. The ESC score is the maximum strokes for each hole based on your handicap as shown in the following table.


The ESC scores are use when posting for handicap calculation and not for scoring an event competition.
The season to post scores for handicaps, from rounds played in Kentucky, begins March first and ends November 30. Scores from all rounds played should be posted.

For members new in the GHIN handicap system: Five scores are required to establish your handicap index. It is very important that you post all your scores, when played, in order to meet the minimum of 5 as soon as possible.

Remember, when posting a score that was played prior to the day you are posting it, be sure to set the "date" to the day the round was played. Do not post multiple rounds as being played on the same day.

To prevent duplicate TOURNAMENT SCORES, do not post them yourself. The Tournament Management program will post them to GHIN for us.
