Hole in One

Let us know  about your hole in one!

Congratulations to Carolyn Niederkorn for her hole-in-one on December 3, 2021 at St. Peters Golf Club on Hole #8.  


Handicap Information

 

Beginning January 1, 2020, GHIN handicap will use the World Handicap System (WHS). 

 

Under the WHS, equitable score control (ESC) is no longer used.  Posting scores in the Greater St. Louis area will begin March 1, 2020.  

Here are a few reminders for a good handicap.

1. Post within a week of play

2. Adjust your score to no higher than net double bogey. If you          post your score hole by hole, GHIN will automatically adjust          the score for you.

3. Handicap will be updated the day after you post your score.

4. Posting errors cannot be corrected through the golf                      course or internet GHIN.  They can only be                                    corrected through SLWGA's Handicap Chairman.

 

Please email any corrections to Marty Crimmins  foetoe@gmail.com.  This includes wrong date, course rating or slope, or score.

 

Pace of Play Reminder

Speed of play is an issue with all SLWGA events but is especially irritating when the temperature is above 90 degrees as it is in our summers. Unfortunately, this can be life threatening.  CLICK HERE to view some courtesy rules that all of us need to observe. Team captains please stress this with your team members.
