In anticipation of a significant change to the USGA Handicap System that will be mandatory beginning on January 1, 2012, the WPGA has adopted the principles of the National Revision Schedule for the 2011 calendar year. This move aligns the association with the regional and state golf associations it overlaps throughout the north east.
Revisions will occur on the 1st and 15th of each month. Transmission dates remain the day before the revision effective date.
WPGA Member Clubs should plan accordingly regarding club events. Though it is recommended to use a member’s Handicap Index in effect on the day of the competition round or rounds, the committee in charge of the competition must ultimately make this decision in advance. The committee may decide to insert a stipulation that the Handicap Index to be used will be as of a certain date in order to allow staff time to properly administer the event.
Please contact the association with any questions regarding this change or for assistance.
