  • GROSS SCORES: Tour Division
  • NET SCORES (see Handicap section): CGC Division

HANDICAP

The official Tour index (CGC Tour Index) will be calculated and made official after the member’s 3rd event.

The Golf Canada index and registry will be used for the member’s first 3 events. (Provisional Index)

The CGC Tour Index will be used from the member’s 4th event on the tour.

 

*** Each player is responsible for providing a valid and truthful handicap***.

CGC TOUR INDEX

The CGC Tour Index will be calculated according to the following scales:

 

1 to 4 rounds played – The best of these rounds

5 and 6 rounds played – The average of the two best rounds

7, 8 and 9 rounds played – The average of the best three rounds

10 or more rounds played – The average of the best four rounds of the member’s last 10 rounds played.

 

The maximum possible index is set according to the following scales:

 

1 to 6 rounds: maximum index of 16

7, 8 and 9 rounds – Maximum Index of 18

10 rounds and more – Maximum Index of 20

 

Professionals who have played 10 rounds or more on the CGC Tour since 2022 and who have not participated in more than 2 events per year on the Pro Tours in 2022, 2023 and 2024 will be awarded their official tour indexes.

 

Professionals who have played fewer than 10 rounds on the CGC Tour since 2022 and who have not participated in more than 2 events per year on the Pro Tours in 2022, 2023 and 2024 will be awarded an automatic handicap of 0.

PROVISIONAL INDEX

All new members will be assigned a provisional index for their first 3 rounds on the tour.

The member’s Golf Canada registry and the Golf Canada index will be used to establish the provisional index according to the same scales as the previous point.

 

Members who do not have a Golf Canada index or registry will be contacted by tour management and asked to fill out a form that will be used to establish their provisional index for the first 3 events in which they will participate.

POINT SYSTEM (ORDER OF MERIT)

There will be one ranking for the gross competition and another for the handicap competition.

BAD ROUND OR ABSENCE: Each player is entitled to one bad round or absence without being penalized in the standings. Points will be counted only for the best 6 rounds or less, if applicable, before the final event.

Points accumulated during the season remain in place for the grand final. Points will be doubled for the two major events and the final.

TIE BREAKER: There will be no extra holes to determine the event winner prior to the final round, unless otherwise specified in the local rules notice sent to all players prior to the events.

The retrogression formula for determining the winner of each event will be the score per hole in ascending order of difficulty handicap. Original scorecards from host clubs, on site, will be used to determine difficulty rating for each hole.
