The handicap system lists KY
as having a golf season from Mar 1-Nov 30. If you play outside of those dates, you do not have to enter any scores.
Those states that have a year round season include FL, MS, GA, AL, LA, NC, SC, VA, TN, AR, AZ, TX, OK, HI - mostly warmer climates. May you be able to play in some of these states this winter. If you do, please post those scores.
If you need to edit or delete a score, please contact Charlotte Pyles at email@example.com.
For the 2023 season, a handicap will be established after fifty-four (54) holes of golf are played.
|Your Handicap||Maximum Strokes Allowed Per Hole|
|9 or less||double bogey|
|40 or more||10|
For example, if you have a handicap of 25 and during a round at Juniper, you took 13 strokes on hole 1, when you enter your score, it will automatically adjust to 8.
For courses other than JHGC, you only enter the final score - not hole by hole. Therefore, you must remember to adjust your score before entering it into the system.
If you need assistance in entering your scores, please contact any of your league's officers.
Golf is a game of integrity. Please ensure that your handicap is accurate.
For both the Wednesday Ladies Day and Late Swingers leagues, your scores from league play will be entered for you into the Golf Handicap and Information Network (GHIN). For the most accurate handicap, all scores should be entered, even those that are not especially pleasant to you.
All tournament scores with stroke play (this exempts scrambles and shambles) will be posted by the Joint League Committee. Those scores will appear on your GHIN record as a T.
For an 18-hole score to be acceptable for handicap purposes, a minimum of 14 holes must be played.
If a player plays more than 9 holes but fewer than 14, all surplus hole scores are disregarded, and a 9-hole acceptable score must be submitted.
For a 9-hole score to be acceptable for handicap purposes, a minimum of 7 holes must be played. If a player has not recorded a score on at least the minimum number of holes required for a 9-hole score, the score is not acceptable for handicap purposes.
If a player records a score on more than 9 holes, but fewer than the minimum number of holes required for an 18-hole score to be acceptable, all surplus hole scores are disregarded, and a 9-hole acceptable score must be submitted.
A hole is considered to have been played if it has been started.
Should you play outside of league play, including courses other than Juniper, you are responsible for entering that score so the GHIN information is updated correctly. When entering a score at Juniper, the GHIN system will automatically show you the correct ESC (Equitable Stroke Control) for each hole. Your ESC numbers are based on your handicap.
