FSGA Golf Guidelines


Proper golf etiquette should be maintained by all. Golf is such a nicer game when we respect the course and others and help maintain the beauty and playability of our course by replacing divots, raking sand traps and repairing ball marks on the greens. Observe all rules posted by the Town of Fairfield regarding cart paths, dress code, etc.


Tournament formats will vary, with most tournaments establishing winners in net divisions and others in both gross and net divisions. The tournament committee will be responsible for running all tournaments. Any questions regarding these tournaments should be directed towards the Tournament Committee.

Scoring Procedures

Tournament scorecards must be turned in to the Tournament Committee and tournament adjusted scores will be posted in the FSGA handicap software.

Outside Outings

There are several events where we send players to participate in outings outside of our course. We expect all players to represent themselves, and our club in a dignified manner. Any player who knowingly and willingly abuses this policy may be subject to exclusion from participating in Outside Outings in the future. Furthermore, any player who signs up and fails to "Show Up" at a particular event (without adequate reason) may be excluded from future outside outings at the discretion of the Board of Governors.
Each Outside Outing will have a designated coordinator who will be responsible for running the particular event. Any questions regarding these outings should be directed towards the designated coordinator.


FSGA member handicaps will be determined based on their play on league days. Following their round, players will place their scorecards in the FSGA box located in the clubhouse next to the GHIN computer.  The scorecards should be signed and attested by another FSGA member and indicated whether the player played from the White or Green tees.  The Handicap Committee will then enter the hole by hole score into the Handicap Software program, which will calculate each player's league handicap.  These handicaps will be posted weekly on the FSGA website.

All members will have GHIN numbers and should enter the score for their round in the GHIN system either at H. Smith Richardson or online.  The system defaults FSGA members to the White tees, so if the round was played from the Green tees, this change should be made when entering the score for the round.

Score Posting

All members are required to place their scorecards in the FSGA box located in the clubhouse next to the GHIN computer.  All scores (9 or 18 Holes) will be posted by the handicap committee. Any member that doesn't deliver a completed scorecard for a tournament will be disqualified from that tournament.  Any member who fails to deliver a completed scorecard for league play within three (3) days of play (by Friday for a Wednesday league day) will lose eligibility for inclusion that week in the Points Competition.
