Men’s League

The Men’s League is open to Birch Bay Village Golf Club Members and their guests with a GHIN handicap index. Participants play with other members of varying skill level, usually 24 to 36 players. If you don’t have a GHIN handicap index, you can establish one through the Club. We will get you in a group and out playing. Each player must pay the appropriate Green Fee for their round at check-in.

Course Handicap

  • A course handicap is a number that indicates how many handicap strokes a golfer receives at the specific golf course (and specific set of tees) being played.
  • Course handicap usually differs from a player’s GHIN index due to a specific course’s rating and slope.
  • Stroke play; also known as medal play, is a scoring system in the sport of golf in which the total number of strokes per player or team is counted over one, or more rounds, of 18 holes.
