The VGA and the VSWGA have begun a collaborative effort to better coordinate services to Vermont golfers. GHIN fees and revisions, handicap questions, tournament management program support and course rating, will now be handled by the VGA office. The VSWGA will continue to organize all women's tournaments. New this year, women "Lakeside" players are eligible to play in VSWGA State Days. For more information on membership and events, please visit www.vswga.org
. More information to follow in April!
Score Posting Active Season
The active season for posting scores shot in Vermont ended on October 31st. Any scores shot in Vermont after this time and before April 15, 2017 are not eligible for posting for handicap purposes because the condition of many of the Northern courses are not the same as they would be during a typical golf season.
Scores shot in states that are still in an active golf season (i.e. the Carolinas, Florida, etc.) can and should be posted during this period. You can post those scores either by going to www.ghin.com or by posting it from the GHIN Mobile App. For more information, visit the handicap section at www.usga.org
Just a reminder to all VGA members who establish their handicap through the Lakeside Golf Club (internet). All handicaps are automatically inactivated at the end of the year! You will need to pay your 2017 handicap fee before you will be able to register for any online events! If you need to renew your membership, type ghin.com
