Golf Season: When is it Active and Inactive? – TheGrint

Golf Active – Inactive Season

Many golfers wonder if they should post scores when they play all Year-Round even though they live in cold and the conditions are not perfect.

The important thing to remember is that the season depends on where you play at that particular moment and not on where your club (the one providing you with a Handicap) is established.

This means that if you live in Boston for example, but you come down to Florida for vacations during winter and you play a few rounds, those scores would count towards your Handicap because in Florida the Golf Season is Year-Round, instead of in Massachusetts, the Season is between April 1st and November 14th.

Just in case, here are the State’s Golf Season Dates.

For us is actually kind of a foreign concept because we are established in Florida:lengua_fuera_con_guiño_de_ojos:. So we get to play year-round. But, same thing applies, if we go and play in Boston during the offseason, that score won’t count towards our handicap.

However, because we get to play Golf anytime we want, doesn’t mean we are not thinking of those Grinters who can’t get out to play whenever they want and so, here are ten ways to improve your golf game from home this off-season.

Remember to stay warm and keep on working that game so that when the season starts again, you don’t feel as lost on the course.

    So if you live in Boston & you get a nice day after the 14th of Nov. should you post that on GRINT? Will the GRINT recognize that it’s not during the season & not count it towards your handicap?

    • Hi Aaron, good morning.
      You can upload the Score to your TheGrint Account with no problem, and it would count towards your Handicap. However, the Handicap Committee in your Club, might ask you to Delete that Score and therefore, it wouldn’t count towards your Handicap.
      Let us know if you have any other question.
      Have a great day!
