JPMGC New Member Info

Welcome to Jefferson Park Men's Golf Club. The following is information that you will need to know before you are eligible to play in our Events.

You MUST have a valid USGA Handicap or a temporary USGA Handicap to play in our JPMGC Events unless expressly advertised as an Open to the Public event.

You must join the club and be paid in full at least ten days prior to playing in any JPMGC Member Events. This allows us time to process your application and have a GHIN number assigned to you. Your "GHIN" number is your system ID number and you will use this number when you post your scores.

In order to establish a temporary Handicap, you must post at least 5 acceptable scores by the "transmission" date prior to the Event. You will use your temporary handicap until you post 20 scores.

Please go to the following web sites for more information on how you establish a Handicap:

If you played rounds this winter in an area that has a year round active season then you can post those scores during Washington inactive season. You will need to know the date you played, course name, the course & slope rating from the tees that you played. So save your scorecards. These scores will not be factored into you handicap until the first Washington revision date.

Once you have established a handicap then you must adjust your scores before you post them in accordance with "Equitable Stroke Control" (ESC). More information about ESC can be found on the USGA or WSGA websites.

If you have more questions about Handicaps contact us at Welcome to JPMGC and we look forward to seeing you out on the course.
