Is your Club Certified to Issue Your USGA Handicap Index 
The USGA has asked that a representative from each of our authorized golf clubs, preferably the Handicap Chairperson, complete the Club Compliance Checklist and the assessment and provide a candid response to each question. The assessment will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. This assessment is not pass/fail, but rather an opportunity for the club representative to utilize their knowledge of the USGA Handicap System.  Upon completing the education assessment, the club will receive an email confirming completion as well as a summary their responses. We appreciate all of your efforts to have this requirement completed by no later than June 30th.   

Here is the Link to the assessment
Impact a Child's Life, Volunteer with the First Tee of GMV 
Dedicated, passionate volunteers needed to support the 2018 programs at golf facilities in Dayton, Hamilton, Fairfield, Lebanon, Oxford and Wright Patterson. 

Here's How to Get Involved...
we are all just learning
The 2018 season brought NEW, BETTER Tournament Management Software to all of our member facilities.  The USGA Tournament Management powered by Golf Genius has greatly enhanced capabilities, but like anything change can be challenging and the old system is no longer available, so we are all forced to adapt.  We have already seen wonderful improvements because of the change, however, sometimes see some failures too.  

So...Please be gentle on your golf staff just in case something goes wrong.
