Handicap Report: The Handicap Chairman participated in the 2017 USGA Handicap Assessment in June. Several players failed to post after playing in a DGC tournament in June with 1member receiving a penalty score. Discussion centered on establishing a penalty policy for players who fail to post. USGA recommends a penalty for every failure to post. No change at this time to address this ongoing problem. The report was accepted.

New Business: Discussion on how to calculate a handicap for a team in a 4 Person Scramble tournament when only 3 players of a team show up for play.

A motion was made: The 3 players who do show up for play in a 4 Person Scramble tournament will be able to play with a team handicap calculated using the following handicaps: The lowest handicap of the 3 players in the group will be counted twice, then added to the other 2 players handicaps providing 4 handicaps to be multiplied by 20%.  There will be a minimum of  5 drives used by each player. Motion passed 6-0 with 1 abstention.
