Whether competing in an event at a golf club or in a VGA State Day event, participants must have a USGA Handicap Index®. The purpose of the USGA Handicap System™ is to make the game of golf more enjoyable by enabling golfers of different abilities the chance to compete on an equal basis.
Lakeside Golf Club uses GHIN®, a service of the USGA, to provide handicap services to its members. Your scores can be posted online at GHIN.COM, directly into the computer at the golf course you are playing and also from your smartphone using the GHIN® mobile application which has been customized for the Vermont Golf Association.
