ANCC Senior Club Championship

Handicap Posting Information & More

The 2019 ANCC Senior Club Championship is the tournament that matches your golf skills one-on-one with each of your fellow competitors. This championship will include both a Men’s and Women’s Division for the championship ONLY (Senior Flighted Match Play Tournament will begin in June). For complete details and to enter, click here.

As the 2019 golf season gets underway, the Handicap Committee reminds all players that in order to maintain the integrity of our handicap system, they should post every round played, except when playing alone (new beginning January 2016). Scores should be posted for any format, even when you pick up without holing out or when you skip holes. This includes playing less than a full 9 or 18 holes. If a player does not hole out, he should assign himself the score for that hole that he would have most likely have achieved, or, if he skips a hole, his handicapped score for that hole. Guidelines that detail how to post rounds are posted in the golf section of the website. We also remind players that the Handicap Committee monitors the handicap system and has imposed handicap penalties when players fail to post regular play and/or tournament scores.

Are Your Clubs Ready for Golf Season?

Flighted Match Play Tournament

When was the last time you had your clubs re-gripped? Eighteen months is the absolute maximum you should wait to change your grips because slick or worn grips can have a negative impact on your game. Maintaining proper grip pressure is essential in making a smooth swing, but worn grips require tighter grip pressure which inhibits the swing and can be especially slippery in wet conditions. Degradation is gradual, so you may not even realize how worn they’ve gotten. Stop by either Golf Shop for more information or to have one of the Golf Professionals take a look at your grips.

The 2019 Flighted Match Play Tournament is an individual match play event. All eligible players will be placed in flights of 8 based on their June 1, 2019 handicap index. All flights will play off the low handicap of the pairing. There will be a men’s and women’s division. For complete tournament details and to sign-up beginning Wednesday, 1 May, click here.
