Beginning this season (2016) AVCC will be using the new handicap system (Golf Canada Score Center) initiated by Golf Canada. We have purchased 50 gold memberships for those AVCC members who wish to maintain their handicap, not only for in-club use, but also for handicap verification at other golf courses and competitions. AVCC members will purchase these gold memberships from the AVCC Pro Shop for $25. The benefits of this new system are highlighted below. AVCC is one of only 7 golf clubs in New Brunswick using this system in 2016. All Golf NB/Golf Canada affiliated clubs will be using this system next season.

OFFICIAL GOLF CANADA HANDICAP FACTOR®

Not only is an Official Golf Canada Handicap Factor a requirement to play in many provincial, national, international and domestic club events, it makes the game of golf more enjoyable by enabling golfers of differing abilities to compete on an equitable basis. Tracking your Official Golf Canada Handicap Factor® opens the door to a variety of fun game play options including Stableford and Match Play, both of which are very popular in Europe. It is a great way to level the playing field and allows you to compete fairly with any golfer, on any golf course.

Each time you play, your Ultimate Scorecard tracks your best round on a hole-by-hole basis. Double-bogeyed hole 5? No worries! If you shoot better the next time you play, your Ultimate Scorecard will reflect it. A fun way to work towards conquering that menacing hole that gets you almost every time!
