World Handicap System
On 1/1/20, new rules of golf handicapping will be introduced in the United States. An upcoming newsletter will provide you with the details. This summary will explain what you, the golfer, has to do differently starting on January 1. - Pre-2020, the maximum score you could post on a hole varied based on your course handicap. Starting in 2020, the maximum score you can post on any hole is a NET DOUBLE BOGEY. In other words, the maximum postable score for each hole is Double Bogey + Handicap Strokes Per Hole Based on Your Course Handicap. In order to post properly, you need to be aware of each hole’s handicap. - Your index will update each day you golf rather than twice each month. You should post your scores immediately after the completion of each round. - The GHIN app and website are expected to be down from 1/1 thru 1/5 while they are updated. If you golf during that time, keep your scorecard and post when GHIN reactivates.

$50 is Minimum Prize Fund Certificate
When requesting winnings from your prize fund, remember the minimum amount for a prize certificate is $50 (or your balance if it is less). Stores will normally give you a credit or gift card if you don’t spend your entire certificate, so request a certificate for a little more than what you plan to spend.

Local Rules at Torrey Pines
Play the ball as it lies in native areas on both courses. This includes the native area right of #4 and #5 on Torrey North. If your ball lands in the gravel to the left of #9 on Torrey South, play it as ground under repair and drop without penalty in the rough no closer to the hole. You may continue to drop without penalty from: staked trees, unpaved roads/paths and flowerbeds. If you hit your ball in the penalty area short of the green on #12 at Torrey North, the drop area for the next shot is between the gold tee markers.
