There are still openings for our annual, season long best ball event. Please call the proshop to register. 1st round matches will begin Tuesday, May 20th.

Attention: There has been some confusion over proposed changes in handicap allowances. The proposed 10 stroke limitation applies only to stroke play events. We will follow USGA guidelines for all handicap allowances:
Four-ball match play, where two golfers play their better ball against the better ball of two other players: the lowest-handicapped player at scratch. The other three get the full difference between their Course Handicaps and the lowest Course Handicap. Let's suppose that player 1 has the lowest handicap, so he plays at scratch; player 2, player 3, and player 4 receive strokes representing the difference.
BTCC Junior Golf Program
