A player must earn a Handicap Index. No player has an inherent right to a Handicap Index without providing full evidence of his ability to the Handicap Committee.

Member's scores may be post on this website; at the SH Golf Club Pro Shop; or online at either scga.org or ghin.com. For Equitable Stroke Control (ESC) adjustments, use your GHIN Course Handicap as the basis.
To post a score on this website, go to the "Handicaps" Tab then down to the "Post a Score" Tab and follow USGA format/instructions.
Posting Handicaps for SHGC and Other GHIN Clubs
Using the GHIN System, member's Indices and Handicaps for play on the Shadow Hills South Course (Blue, White, and Green Tees) and other GHIN System Clubs, are updated on the first and fifteenth of each month and posted on this website. Rounds posted before 9:00 p.m. on the fourteenth or on the last day of each month will be included in these updates.
Posting Scores for Play at Non-GHIN Clubs
For many Canadians and residents from other states, you may now enter your IGN # and Association into the GHIN System. This will allow both systems to be updated every time you post a score to either. (For detailed instructions on how to do this, click "Here")
