Handicap Active and Inactive Season Schedule

The authorized golf association having jurisdiction in an area is responsible for declaring the duration of any inactive season. Any non-member club of an authorized golf association must observe any inactive season established by the authorized golf association that has jurisdiction in its area.

Note: In addition, the National Revision Schedule mandates all domestic golf clubs must revise on the 1st and the 15th of each month during the calendar year.
