Indexes, Handicaps, and Cuts: Eliminating the Confusion

by Ron Kramer, Tournament Director

Indexes are provided twice each month on the 1st and 15th from GHIN through SCGA based on the scores a player posts at any given course. These scores are converted to a handicap differential by the following formula: Adjusted gross score minus USGA course rating times 113 divided by the USGA slope rating of the tees played. GHIN uses the lowest ten (10) scores of your last twenty (20) to figure your current index. Only indexes on the monthly report stated in the Tournament Entry flyer is used for tournaments. The index (or combined indexes in partner tournaments) is used to determine the division of flights with equal number of players in each flight. Sometimes all flights play the same set of Tees and sometimes some flights may play Green Tees, Blue Tees while others play White Tees. After it is determined which flight a player (or players) belongs, the Course Handicap Conversion Chart is then used to convert the index into a handicap based on the tees that player will be playing.

Changes in format were made upon recommendations received by the Men=s Club Committee.  Full activity members will receive the details of each tournament by e-mail.  Most tournaments will start about 7:00 - 8:00 a.m. on Saturday or Sunday.  You must have an index number before you can play in a Men’s Club tournament. The Tournament Committee reserves the right to adjust any member’s or guest’s course handicap for any Men’s Club Tournament or Club Championship.
