Women's Handicap Adjustment  (UPDATED:  August 2014)

Bennett Valley has installed several new tee boxes and the course has since been re-rated. The course rating for men ( 69.5, white tees) and women (69.7,  red  tees ) is a  0.2 differential. Previously the differential  was 2.3 and  required a handicap  adjustment (see below).

The BVGC has adopted the USGA recommendation for adjusting course handicap for golfers playing from different sets of tees in a tournament.

Basically, this adjustment compensates for the differential in course rating between tees. The difference in course ratings is rounded to a whole number and added to the player's course handicap.
