Club Rules

The following Club Rules have been set forth and established by the past and present Board of Directors. Requests by a member to change or amend these Rules must be presented in writing to the current Board of Directors for due consideration.

These Club Rules are for the Oak Hills Women’s Golf Association (OHWGA) and do not supercede any other club rules. Please be aware of other club rules when playing in a tournament other than at Oak Hills.
The OHWGA has chosen to play summer rules for the entire season regardless of any other course posting. Only if the course has declared “Cart Path Only” for the entire course, do you have the option to lift, clean and place your ball in the fairway within 6”, no closer to the hole.
The maximum allowable handicap for tournament-scoring purposes is 36 (33.2 index) for all tournaments played at Oak Hills. This means that if your handicap is 42, you receive only 36 strokes during tournament play at Oak Hills. For “away tournaments” sponsored by OHWGA, you will receive the appropriate number of strokes that equate to a 33.2 index.
If the course is open during inclement weather, the player has the option to play in the tournament. If the course is open for play on Tuesday, Wednesday, Saturday or Sunday, the tournament will be considered official and prizes will be awarded as scheduled.

All scores for rounds played home and away must be entered in the computer for handicap purposes except designated tournaments. Posted scores may be checked on a random basis to insure that all scores are being properly posted. All OHWGA tournaments should be entered as “H” (home) in the computer. Only the Club Championship, President's cup matches or outside tournaments designated by SNEWGA or SCWGA should be input as “T” (tournament) results.
