Establish Your Initial Handicap Index
To obtain an initial Handicap Index, a player must post scores to GHIN for three rounds of golf.
Your HI (handicap index) is required to participate in our club events.
You are solely responsible for posting to GHIN all rounds played. The Men’s Club will post any Men’s Club-sanctioned event for you. Several other weekly groups will also post your round. Be sure to check and see if they will post. If unsure, post your score.
Signing Up for Weekly Club Events
Once you have an established handicap index and have a GHIN number, have met the
eligibility requirements and are a member in good standing you will be contacted by our Tournament Chairman for registration into our tournament software “Golf Genius”.
RRMGA uses Golf Genius for all our events.
You must register for each event individually and are solely responsible for your own registration.
Having been registered into Golf Genius:
- Enter the golf Genius Site (GOLFGENIUS.COM/USERS/SIGN-IN)
- At the Robson Ranch League, Go to Portal. Click Go to Portal which opens a window.
- On the left are the events you are eligible to join. Click on the event you want to play and you are enrolled. If you make a mistke, you can “Cancel Signup”.
- You will not receive a notification of a game from Golf Genius. You will, however, receive an email from Golf Genius saying that have registered for an event and what event date it is.
- The tournament chairman may on occasion beg you to play, but only because he is needy of players.
Day of Event Procedure
- You will receive a Tee Sheet from Golf Genius via email showing your assigned group and time to play.
- Show up ready to play at least one hour before the round begins.
- If you do not have an annual membership, go into the pro shop and pay for your round. If you are an annual member, do not go into the pro shop.
- The tournament chair will provide the pro shop with a list of players for the event and the pro shop will charge your member account the entry fee.
- Once the game is complete, you are required to verify your score before it is turned in.
- Your score for the Wednesday Men’s Club Event will be posted for you by the Tournament Chairman. All other rounds played during the year must be posted by you. When posting, pay special attention to the “net double bogey” adjustment.
- There are some groups during the week who will post for you. Be sure to clarify when playing in these groups who are posting.
- The group generally congregates after the round in the restaurant or the grill depending on the season.
- Relax, play by the rules, play timely, ready golf, enjoy the day, and above all have fun. Remember, none of us are any good.
- Come back next week.
