Timbers at Troy GC
MISGA Web Site

Handicap

As a Timbers at Troy MISGA Associate, you must maintain a current handicap with the Maryland State Golf Association (MSGA) to play in any of the Timbers at Troy MISGA Mixers. You are responsible for recording all your scores throughout the season according to the rules of the USGA. Posting of scores is monitored by our handicap chairman and failure to post scores according to USGA guidelines may result in suspension of playing in MISGA events until all scores are properly posted.

The Timbers at Troy Handicaps are maintained on GolfNet, so you can post your scores online or at the course. You can have your handicap at another club, but you must request that Timbers be added as a secondary home club.

Posting Scores

Your scores should be posted as soon as possible after completing your round.  Make sure that you DO NOT post your MISGA mixer round as a Tournament.  A MSGA and MISGA ruling states that the only rounds that should be posted are the actual tournaments like the Division/State 2-man best ball and ABCD Past President’s Tournament.
