All Golf League matches are match play. All rules and penalties will be in accordance with the USGA Rules of Golf. If there is a question or discrepancy, the Golf League asks its members to play two balls (Rule 3-3) and ask the course pro for a ruling at the completion of the round. The home player is responsible for keeping score during the round on the course scorecard. The Golf League advises each member to review each hole and sign the scorecard at the completion of a round to ensure the utmost accuracy. Once a scorecard us reviewed and signed, the home player must enter the score online before the scoring entry deadline. The Golf League allows players to pick up during holes that they are conceding to ensure a reasonable pace of play. If a hole is conceded then mark the scorecard with an “X” for the player who concedes the hole. The Golf League will abide by the USGA rules for adjusting hole scores for equitable stroke control. Equitable stroke control is an adjustment of individual hole scores (for handicap purposes) in order to make handicaps more representative of a player’s potential ability. Equitable stroke control is applied after the round and is only used when the actual score or the most likely score exceeds a player’s maximum number. Equitable stroke control sets a limit to the number of strokes a player can take on a hole depending on their course handicap.

Course Handicap: Maximum Number:
9 or Less Double Bogey
10-19 7
20-29 8
30-39 9
40 and Above 10


If you are competing in the non-handicap divisions and you pick up on a hole, your score for that hole will be a 9.
