   Tournament Handicaps 

    The Handicap Committee recommended to the Simi Hills Board of Directors and we voted to bring back a modified version of our Tournament Handicap (TH). In the past versions we calculated every person in the club and this was a monumental amount of work and in our opinion, way too many hours of work to reduce just a few. We are now only going to be looking at those twenty or so guys that consistently shoot around net par or better but also look at the guys that have shot what are considered exceptional rounds. This is only about 10% of the club so it reduces our work load to implement this by 90%. We will use your lowest five of the last ten scores from only Simi Hills Men’s Golf Club postable tournament rounds. We will only go back as far as one year and if you have less than ten scores we will calculate using the following formula, lowest 4 of 8 or 9 rounds, 3 lowest of 6 or 7 rounds and so on. We will use the same formula that is used by GHIN to calculate your regular index. Average of the lowest 5 adjusted indexes of your last ten scores that you have shot and then times that by .96 and that will give you your “TH”.  We will recalculate once a month but reserve the right to modify whenever, if in our opinion the situation warrants a revision.


We will notify you by email and send you a printout of your calculations if we find that you need to be reduced. This is only used for our tournaments and we will not adjust your GHIN unless it becomes apparent that we need to do more.

Numbers do not lie and it’s our obligation as the Board of Directors, to protect the field.

The Simi Cup
will be held on Sunday
Jan. 5th 2020
The Simi Cup is a yearlong accumulative point contest where you get extra points for placing in your flight but also points for just playing. The top 32 point earners will play a match play format on January 5th of 2020.  Teams will be set up by handicap and the club will buy some really nice swag for the top 32 players. The more you play the better chance you have of playing in the third annual SIMI CUP.
