After playing in a Duffer event your score will automatically be posted to your GHIN number at AGA (unless the game was a scramble). If you play other rounds be sure to post your 9 hole scores on AGA. https://www.azgolf.org/
The Desert Duffers have adopted a set of local rules of play which augment golf rules by the USGA, AGA and Quail Creek Country Club. The purpose of our local rules is to promote an enjoyable round of golf for Duffers of all skill levels in less than 2 1/4 hours.
For the latest copy of our local rules click HERE.
The idea behind the USGA Handicap System is to enable golfers of all levels to compete on a comparatively equal basis. For more details on how your index is applied to the course you are playing and how your handicap is calculated click HERE.
Can a Duffer continue to play in the Tuesday golf tournaments and enjoy the camaraderie of golfing with friends when, due to medical or physical conditions, he is not quite able to finish nine holes or compete fairly? Yes! The Desert Duffers organization supports all who wish to be members and who wish to play with the Duffers on a regular basis. This support is not contingent upon their mental or physical capabilities. The Duffer board of directors has implemented a formal policy that accommodates players in this situation while remaining fair to others in the tournament.
