World Handicap System, IGA Renewal Information, Twilight Leagues, 2020 Tournament Dates
Dear <<First Name>> <<Last Name>>,
Happy New Year - we hope that you will be able to golf soon during 2020! Both Quail Hollow and Warm Springs were briefly blanketed by snow giving the courses a well deserved rest. Both clubhouses are closed for the New Year's Holiday. We will re-open on January 2, please call the course to find out about current course conditions. Play is not allowed if frost or snow is on the course.
WORLD HANDICAP SYSTEM (WHS)
The USGA is in process of converting to the World Handicap System. The World Handicap System (WHS) has been developed by the USGA and R&A in order to bring the 6 handicap systems used worldwide into 1 handicap system. Want to learn more about the new handicapping system? Check on the handbook below:
Rules of Handicapping 2020
The blackout period for GHIN is January 1 until approximately January 6. Due to the data conversion, the GHIN system is currently unavailable to input scores and check handicap information until approximately January 6, 2020. If you have played rounds in an area that is "in season" (Arizona, California, Florida, etc.), please hold your scores and enter when the system is available again.
IGA RENEWALS NOT YET AVAILABLE
Once the data conversion is complete for the new WHS, the IGA will begin renewals for the 2020 season. Online renewals will be available again, with a discounted fee until February 29, 2020.
Watch your email for a newsletter announcement that IGA renewals have started and the online system is available!
