The World Handicap System™ is designed to make the game of golf more enjoyable by enabling players of differing abilities to compete on an equitable basis. The System provides a fair Course Handicap for each player, regardless of ability, and adjusts a player's Handicap Index up or down as the player's game changes from one playing season or year to the next. Two basic premises underlie the World Handicap System™, for which the player and the Handicap Committee share responsibility:

  • each player will try to make the best score at every hole in every round, and
  • the player will post every acceptable round for peer review


Members of the committee for 2021 now include:


Geoff Brown, Chairman

Mark Sherrill, Vice Chairman


Cathy Adams

Rick Authier

Lou Coglianese

Mason Jobin

Alan Lofthus

Alex Rapp

Bill Siddon

Tom Truesdale

Davis Welch


All DVCC golf members are invited to consider joining the Committee.
