If a club has any concerns regarding their rating, the Course Rating Director is available to explain why the rating is as stated and if necessary, review the rating for possible change.

  3. TOURNAMENTS - WSCGA sponsors tournaments throughout the year for golfers of every handicap. Tournaments are scheduled one to two years in advance for golfers of every handicap.

We sponsor individual tournaments, partners events and 4-Person events. Our tournaments are classified as Major events or Association Day events. Participants in the Major tournaments earn points which acumulate toward the selection of a team to represent the South in the North/South Annual State competition.
