GGCA members must have a valid handicap (sanctioned by the USGA) before playing in any GGCA sponsored tournament. The handicap must be maintained within a USGA approved handicap system such as VSGA (preferably from The Gauntlet). Handicaps kept in any other handicap tracking system that does not provide a USGA handicap are not permitted nor accepted. Members use the Gauntlet management staff to maintain USGA handicap service, pay their fees directly to the Gauntlet Golf Club.


Non GGCA members (meeting the handicap requirement above) may play in all GGCA sponsored tournaments at the “non-member rate”. Exceptions to this policy are for the Member-Member, Home & Home, and the GGCA Championship tournaments. “Non-member” rate is the member rate plus $10 per day (i.e., $10 for a 1 day tournament and $20 for a 2 day tournament).


Entries to all GGCA tournaments are due by close of business (COB) on Wednesday (prior to the event) in order to allow the tournament chairman to identify the number of players participating in the event.


All participants are asked to check in 30 minutes prior to scheduled start time. Tournament play rules will be discussed 15 minutes prior to start.


Handicap index adjustments will be made by the Tournament Chairman for all stroke play tournaments.


Payment for each tournament is required at the time of sign-up unless otherwise specified by the tournament chairman. Normal Gauntlet Golf Club green fees are applicable for all GGCA tournaments. Members of the Gauntlet Golf Club in good standing will only pay the GGCA entry fee (reduced fee if also members of the GGCA).
