As of January 1, 2020, the USGA has moved to the World Handicap System. There are problems with the system in terms of cost, complexity and implementation. The Valdyba has decided to continue with the our old system going forward. In other words, you won’t see any changes in how your handicap index and course handicaps will be computed. The only difference is that the handicap indices are no longer approved by the United States Golf Association. The CLGK Handicap Index will be converted to a course handicap and used in the net competition tournaments that we conduct. We will post all tournament scores, but in order for your CLGK golf index to be valid, it is required that all of your golf scores, with name of course, tee used, adjusted score with course rating and slope, be posted. You can do this by texting Arunas Dagys, or sending this information by e-mail at ArunasD@sbcglobal.net Directions for adjusting the golf score, as well as the current golf indexes/handicaps for all club members, are available by visiting the club's web site. You may view any members handicap record for the entire year by clicking on the Handicap Records link.
