Vegas Golf Assn Rules

USGA rules apply / LOCAL SCORECARD

  1. 2-Person best ball-play your own ball into the hole, NO "GIMMEES".
  2. Max 3 strokes over Par on any hole. Record that score, as it will be used to calculate handicaps.
  3. Any disputes will be settled at the scoring table after play.
  4. Proper attire as required by hosting course.
  5. Teams must exchange scorecards and record individual GROSS scores only (theirs and yours). Hole by Hole scores will be tallied when input into the scoring program.

Tie Breaking Rule - USGA

NET: If the net score is tied after 18 holes, the winner is determined on the basis of the best net score for the last nine holes. If there is still a tie, the winner is determined on the basis of the best net score for the last six holes. If there is still a tie, the winner is determined on the basis of the best net score for the last three holes. And finally, if there is still a tie, the winner is determined on the basis of the best net score for the 18th hole. One half, one third, one sixth, or one 18th of the course handicap is deducted. Fractions of one half stroke or more count as a full stroke. GROSS: If the gross score is tied after 18 holes, the winner is determined on the basis of the best gross score for the last nine holes. If there is still a tie, the winner is determined on the basis of the best gross score for the last six holes. If there is still a tie, the winner is determined on the basis of the best gross score for the last three holes. And finally, if there is still a tie, the winner is determined on the basis of the best gross score for the 18th hole.

USGA Handicap Index
The USGA Handicap Index is based on the best differentials of the players scoring record.  If a player's scoring record contains 20 or more scores, then the best 10 handicap differentials of the most recent 20 scores are used to calculate the USGA Handicap Index.  The number of the best differentials used decreases as the number of scores in the scoring record decreases.  A USGA Handicap Index shall not be issued to a player who has returned fewer than 5 acceptable scores.
Number of Acceptable Scored Differentials To Be Used
5 or 6 Lowest 1
7 or 8 Lowest 2
9 or 10 Lowest 3
11 or 12 Lowest 4
13 or 14 Lowest 5
15 or 16 Lowest 6
17 Lowest 7
18 Lowest 8
19 Lowest 9
20 Lowest 10
  1. Determine the handicap differentials
  2. Average the handicap differentials being used
  3. Multiply the average by .96
  4. Delete all numbers after the tenths digit.  Do not round off to the nearest tenth.
