posting season AT NYSGA CLUBS

April 15th - October 31st

Due to the unique COVID-19 precautions taking place at golf courses, the USGA has provided guidance on how to use the flexibility provided in the Rules of Golf while protecting public health. They also provided temporary guidance on posting scores to GHIN, specifically when golfers don't "hole out" for health/safety reasons.

All rounds played in New York State during active posting season should be posted to your GHIN Handicap. Any rounds played outside of this timeframe in our territory (with exception of Westchester, Long Island, and Metro-NY) cannot be posted to your Handicap Index. 

However, if you are traveling during the fall/winter/spring months and play a round in another area that is in an active season, you should post those scores to your Handicap Index.
