When to stop posting scores for a handicap

Updated: November 4, 2019

It’s that time of the season for golfers in the Pacific Northwest. The non-posting dates vary by state in the Northwest.

 The non-posting time in Washington and Idaho will start November 15 and run through the end of February. Oregon’s posting will stop December 1 and run through the then end of February. Northern Utah stops posting November 15 and starts up again on March 16.  Alaska stops posting on November 1 through March 31. 

The reason for the non-posting of scores is because of Mother Nature and the fact that all courses play what is called Winter Rules during the months of November through March.

However, if you travel outside of the Pacific Northwest to places like Hawaii, California or Arizona, you can still post those scores.
