The Sheridan Park Golf Club follows all handicapping procedures of the USGA, uses the World Handicap/GHIN System, and is officially licensed by the USGA to provide USGA Handicaps. To visit the World Handicap System website - the definitive source of information on score posting and handicapping rules and practices - click here 

In the opinion of the Club’s Board of Directors, current course conditions at Sheridan are such that Club Members may Lift, Clean, and Place their ball anywhere.

Rounds played under these rules CANNOT be posted for Handicap purposes!

For rounds played at courses other than Sheridan, if the course conditions allow it, we encourage Members to “play the ball down” and post that score. 

When the course dries up sufficiently, the Board will announce the end of the Lift, Clean, and Place Everywhere option.
