HOMEPAGE for the Simi Hills Men's Golf Club
last updated:  07/06/17  |  Total Club Page Views:434,808

We are going back to a Club Tournament Handicap

   Effective with the July Home Tournament on July 16th, Simi Hills Men’s Golf Club will start using a Tournament Handicap calculation for its club tournaments. The Simi Hills Men’s Club Tournament Handicap will not affect or have any influence on your GHIN handicap.

   A Player’s Tournament Handicap will be solely based upon scores shot in Simi Hills Men’s Club tournaments. Normally there are only two official “tournaments” each month, one away and one at home. We will use the lowest 5 NET scores of your last ten tournament rounds in the last twelve calendar months. Calculations for your tournament handicap will only be updated once a month, prior to play in our first Tournament. When the tournament roster is published for a Tournament we will apply the lower of either your GHIN handicap or your Simi Hills Men’s Club Tournament Handicap for that tournament.  

   We will install and maintain the Club’s “Tournament Handicap page” on our web site so you can check your handicap for any event. Since GHIN updates your Handicap Index twice each month, your actual handicap may not be available until just a few days before the event.

   If you don’t have ten tournament scores in the last twelve months we will use half of the total tournaments you have played, i.e. 1 of 2, 1 of 3, 2 of 4, 2 of 5, 3 of 6 and so on up to the 10 total tournaments.

   For our new members
with no handicap, we will continue to use the Peoria system to compute a handicap for the first couple of tournaments. Our club’s original Tournament Handicap algorithm was reviewed by an official of the SCGA and was very impressed with methodology and felt it was fair enough to warrant use by our and other clubs.  It is the Board’s intent to hold fair, even and enjoyable tournaments for all our members.

   Questions about your Tournament Handicap can be addressed to our Handicap Chairman, John Van Diepen or any other Board Member.

Willie Melancon



   Our club's voluntary Hole In One club.  Membership fee is a one time $10.  Your entire $10 goes in the pool and remains there until won. If the prize is won, you will need to "re-join" the new pool.  There are three ways to become a member.
  1. Attend our members meeting at the golf course on the 1st Wednesday of each month.  Hand your $10 to the treasurer.  
  2. Or....Fill out the "ACES Club" envelope at any tournament and slip it, with your $10 inside, into the tournament special events box (Where you sign up for skins).  Or, send your check to:
Tim Crable 
3291 Hereford Court
Simi Valley, CA 93063

    First member(s) to score a witnessed ACE in an official SHMCG event gets the entire pot*!  This can go a long way towards paying off the bar tab after your ACE.  

   Membership fee must be paid before the day of any qualifying SHMGC tournament. A member who pays the membership fee on the day of a qualified SHMGC tournament will not be eligible for that Tournament but will for all successive tournaments.

There currently is $510 in the pool

The latest player to join the Aces Club is Bob Welling

* In the event there are multiple winners in one month, the pot will be split equally amongst those 'Acers'.  Payout will not occur until the end of the month.   

The Simi Cup

This is a year long accumulative point contest where you get extra points for placing in your flight, both gross and net as well as points for just playing. You get five points for playing and an extra 5 pts for winning your flight. Second will get 4 pts extra on down to the last paying place. The top 16 players will play a Ryder type format that will consist of two eight man teams. You will play six holes of 2 ball (alternate), six holes of four ball (best ball) and six holes of match play with both individual and team points on the line. Points will be awarded for individual tournaments only. (No Team events) Play well and play offen if you want to make the team. The Match will take place in January of 2018 with the President and Vice President of this year being Team Captains.
