Women Golfers United by Kindness, Support & Mutual Respect

Giggles and Golf has been added to our weekly sweeps for members in good standing that currently don't have the ability to play a full 9 hole round.


To compete in regular play-day Sweeps, player must be member in good standing with temporary or permanent index. 

The Tournament Coordinator will post your scores for the weekly Sweeps Games.

Posting Rules Outside of sweeps days:

9 holes: You must record a score for all holes 1-9 to post for handicapping purposes. Enter hole by hole scores instead of a total score.

  • If a hole is closed for maintenance, record a score of Par + Pops.
  • If you start a hole but don’t finish, record net double bogey (par+2+pops) OR your expected score per Rule 3.3 (adding strokes based on how far from the hole you pick up – 0-5 Ft. = add 1 or 2 strokes, 5ft. – 20 yds. = 2 or 3 strokes, 20 yds. and out = 3 or 4 strokes)
  • If you SKIP a playable hole – record net double bogey – Par + 2 + pops.

18-hole rounds – If you play 10 – 18 holes and skip a hole on the front 9 (holes 1-9), record a score of Par + pops for that hole. If you skip a hole from 10 – 18, you may leave it blank, and the computer uses an algorithm to compute the score based on how you played that day.
