MEMBERSHIP INFORMATION Memberships are no longer from Jan.1st thru Dec.31.  Your membrship will now run for 365 days from the date you join.   SCGA will send out reminders when your membership is getting close to ending. Your member card and information will be mailed directly from SCGA to your home.  You may obtain membership by clicking here Griffith Park Golf Club.

  An important function of the Club is to establish a Registered Handicap Index.  Your Southern California Golf Association (SCGA) will provide you with a membership card. SCGA cards are issued each year. Your Handicap Index is your relative golfing ability.  Your handicap will change depending on the complexity of the course that you play, but your index won't change until the next update. Each course has a "slope rating" and "tee designation" handicap table versus index table for determining your handicap to a whole number at a particular course.


The score you are required to post may differ from the total number of strokes you have played. This corrected score to post is called your ADJUSTED SCORE and it is your total number of strokes played minus the sum of the difference between the  maximum allowable strokes for each hole compared to your actual strokes for that hole and according to the following:

                 Your Course Handicap                 Max Strokes allowed per hole

0-9                                                       2 over par

10-19                                                   7

20-29                                                   8

30-39                                                   9

40-49                                                 10

In tournament play, you can not enter your scores on your printed score card. Your playing partner will keep your score and you will keep his score. Enter the total strokes made for each hole. Add the "out" nine totals and the "in" nine totals and enter these amounts in the designated columns.  Add the two nine totals and enter the amount in the "Tot" column. Sign as the "scorer", date the score card and give it to your playing partner. When your score card is signed by the scorer you must review and "attest" your card as correct by signing your name. Post all rounds played including practice rounds of 13 holes or more, using par plus any handicap strokes supported by your handicap for the remaining unplayed holes. Assistance in calculating your score or posting your score may be obtained from Pro Shop personnel. Verify that your tournament score will be posted automatically by the Tournament Chairman when he uploads the hole-by-hole scores in the computer after a tournament.  If he doesn’t intend to automatically post your score, you must post it yourself.
