Note there will be no registration fees required for the 2019 Tour
The Handicap Factor is calculated using the best 10 of the player’s last 20 rounds and updated with each new round played. The Handicap Factor travels with the golfer from course to course and is adjusted up or
down depending on the length and difficulty of the course played, resulting in a “Course Handicap”. The Course Handicap is the number of strokes a golfer receives from a specific set of tees at the course played and represents the number of strokes
he would require to play equitably against a “scratch” golfer (a golfer with a Handicap Factor of “0.0′). The more difficult the golf course, the more strokes the golfer receives and vice versa.
It is very important
that you maintain and keep your Handicap Factor. If you are a member at a club – then this would probably be included in your membership fee. Check with your Club Professional or Junior Chairman.
If you are not a member of a club
– you can still keep a handicap.
Go online to RCGA Network (golfcanada.ca) and join. There is a small fee involved – so make sure Mom and Dad are okay with this.
Once you join Golf Canada, you are automatically registered for the Golf Association of Ontario.
Your valid Handicap Factor is needed to participate in the NET competitions at our events.
If you do not
have a valid Handicap Factor– then you can still play. You will be participating in the GROSS Division only.
If you do not know how to get a Handicap Factor then please ask one of the St Lawrence Tour reps and we will be happy
to help you get established. The St. Lawrence Jr. Golf Committee
Unlike previous years the tee times will not be posted on the website until the eve of the event. Because there have been so many late entries in previous
years which resulted in several changes to the website, the Host Club will be advised to submit their final draw on the eve of the event, at which time the draw will be posted to the website.
We Need Your Assistance
We do not have a full time photographer to take photos at our events for our Website. If you take
any photos at our events, would you please email them to me, email@example.com. I would need the name of the players, the event, and I will post on our website. If you have any pictures
from our first 2 events they are welcomed. Depending on the response I may have to pick and choose. Your assistance would be appreciated
