Handicap – Guidelines and Posting
A handicap committee has been formed to monitor all BCC Member handicaps and score posting. Please make sure to post all your scores.
Handicap Posting Guidelines:
- Post all scores when at least seven holes are played. (7 holes are posted as a 9 hole score, 14 holes are posted as an 18 hole score). Holes not played are posted as par plus any handicap strokes to which the player is entitled.
- Post scores made under the rules of golf
- Post scores on all courses with a valid USGA course rating and slope rating.
- Post scores in all forms of competition: Match play, Stroke play and Team Competitions where players play their own ball. Check with the committee to see if the score is posted as a tournament (T) score.
- Post scores played under the local rule of “preferred lies.”
- A scorecard must be turned in for each score posted.
- Scores must be adjusted using: “Equitable Stroke Control” before posting to the handicap computer.
- After a handicap index has been established for a player with an established Handicap Index, the maximum score for each hole played is limited to a net double bogey. (Par of the hole + 2 strokes + Any handicap stroke(s) that the player receives on that hole)
- A player should submit their score as soon as possible on the day of play, after completion of their round, and before midnight (local time). You can post the round, at the club, online or through your GHIN/MyGSGA app.

Crush It! Juniors Program
Based on principles of the American Development Model (ADM), Brookfield Country Club’s Crush It! Juniors Program is a game-changing golf development program designed to help your junior golfers develop a deep love for the game and the abilities needed to perform on the course.
Whether new or familiar with the game and for fun or friendly competition, the program provides kids with the tools to engage proactively in life and learn valuable lessons they can use in all areas of their lives, while at the same time enabling them to engage in developmentally appropriate experiences and learning opportunities that connect child and family at every step through a progression pathway.
At the core of Brookfield Country Club’s Crush It! Program is the development of a “golfer for life” through the motto, “Skills for golf, skills for life” by through:
Game On! Program
Whether you’re picking up a club for the first time or if you’re coming back to the sport after some time off, Brookfield Country Club’s Game On! Program provides the ideal way for golfers to experience learning the game in an environment and structure that will enable them to build the skills, knowledge and social connections to actively play the game and maximize your Brookfield Country Club membership.
Where Game On! differs from other traditional programs is that it does not measure success based on completing a set number of classes. Instead, success is defined when you have achieved the criteria set out within a 3-Level Progression Pathway that ensures you have harnessed the knowledge, experiences and appropriate level of skill to play the golf course. The length of time spent on the program varies between golfer but it’s why golf is a journey, not a marathon.
No matter where your golf journey is taking you, Brookfield Country Club is excited to welcome you to the sport! From socializing in a friendly and fun environment to focusing on health and wellness, golf has something for everyone and for every family through:
Making New Social Connections
Spending more time with loved ones
Learning a new skill
An activity great for the entire family
