Handicaps

To be eligible to participate in WGC weekly events, new members must be registered or obtain a handicap in the GHIN system. Bella Vista moved to a new handicap system, (GHIN) starting January 1st 2022. WGC members are required to sign up for GHIN at the Golf Office any time after December 1, 2021. The GHIN discounted rate is $25.00 per member and is to be paid directly at the Golf Office. Current GolfNet handicaps will be rolled into the new GHIN system at that time. A GHIN handicap will be necessary to play in the BVWGC and must be available before signing up for first play date.

New Members without a GHIN handicap, bring three (3) scorecards to the Golf Office when you sign up for GHIN. Once your handicap is established, enter all of your scores into the GHIN system except BVWGC scores. These will be posted by the WGC Handicap Committee. You must have a GHIN handicap to be eligible to participate in BVWGC weekly prizes.

If you have a handicap in another system, please include that handicap and the slope, rating, last five scores and state of the course on which you received your handicap.

After a handicap number is assigned to you, please enter all of your scores as they accumulate. (All WGC scores from League Play will be posted by the Handicap Committee.) Scores can be posted either online or at computers in the various pro shops.
