Frequently Asked Questions on Posting of Scores for Golf Handicap  

Q: Can my Handicap Index be adjusted by the Handicap Committee?

A: Yes, your Handicap Committee has the responsibility to ensure that your Handicap Index reflects your potential ability and will adjust it, if necessary.  However, the Handicap Committee must give you the opportunity to explain the circumstances surrounding the proposed adjustment, either in writing or appearing before them before the adjustment becomes effective.  An adjusted Handicap Index will be identified with a letter "M".  Some examples of the circumstances which may prompt your Handicap Committee to adjust or withdraw your Handicap Index include:

     (a). improving faster than the system can react; (b). persistent failure to post acceptable scores; 
     (c) . posting erroneous scores or manipulating scores
