New Members will be added to the official league roster after annual dues of $65 have been received. Dues may be paid to any MCSCGA Officer or deposited in the scorecard box. Please provide your address, email address and phone number on the back of your check.

A USGA handicap index will be calculated by Handicomp after five scores of league play have been submitted. You must play with at least one other league member so that scores may be properly attested.

The league does not cancel tournaments because of inclement weather. If 26 members or 1/3 of the membership, whichever is less, completes 18 holes of play, the tournament is deemed official.

MCSCGA announcements are posted on the bulletin board at PCC or the league website. Check for schedule changes, rules changes, or special events.

IMPORTANT: Please play by the rules and encourage your playing partners do the same. The players in your foursome are competing not only against each other but also against all other members in other foursomes, so there can be no mulligans. Putts (inside the leather) are conceded. You may roll the ball when in the fairway of the hole being played and you may rake and place your ball when in a sand trap. Play it as it lies in the rough!.
