In order to obtain a Handicap Index that can be administered in accordance with the Rules of Handicapping, a player must be a member of a golf club that is affilliated with an Authorized Association, or a direct member of an Authorized Assocation which has assumed the responsibility of a golf club. Golf clubs must have at least ten individual members that have a reasonable and regular opportunity to play golf together, follow the Rules of Golf and the Rules of Handicapping, and operate under bylaws with committees to supervise golf activities, so that scores posted are subject to peer review and the integrity of the Rules of Handicapping is maintained.
