Time to start posting your scores

Updated: March 4, 2014

It’s time to starting posting your scores that you shot at golf courses in Washington and Oregon.

The Washington State Golf Association (WSGA) and Oregon Golf Association (OGA) both have specific season in which golfers can post scores from the courses in those states. OGA postings run from March 1 to November 30, WSGA posting is from March 1 to November 15.

If you are a member at a club in the WSGA or OGA system you have been frozen out of the computers for local scores but if you travel to play golf in places like Hawaii or Arizona, it’s still OK to post those scores.

As you may know, the WSGA and OGA observe an inactive score posting season during which rounds played in the area administered by both groups are never acceptable for handicap computational purposes. Most of the golf associations in the Northern areas of the U.S. are seasonal golf associations like the WSGA and OGA also observe an inactive score posting period.
The only scores that are acceptable for handicap purposes during the inactive season are scores from rounds played in an area (mainly the Southern tier of the U.S.) which is still accepting scores for handicap purposes. The preferable method of posting scores at all times is through the handicap computer located at the course where the round was played.
