It’s time.

The active handicap-posting season — and the official golf season — in the GAP region opened Saturday, April 1. Posting eligibility in the region will end Nov. 14, 2023.

Scores are to be posted to your handicap record, presuming they’re in accordance with the Rules of Handicapping and the Rules of Golf, if they are played in active-posting regions.

In the beginning of 2020, the World Handicap System was introduced. Handicap revisions now occur on a daily basis. The WHS brings six different handicap systems together into a single set of Rules for Handicapping, enabling golfers of different abilities to play and compete on a fair and equal basis. For more resources, visit GAP’s World Handicap System page.

If you have a question, contact the Handicapping Department at 610-687-2340 ext. 0020 or email handicapping@gapgolf.org.
