HOMEPAGE for the Simi Hills Men's Golf Club
last updated:  09/18/17  |  Total Club Page Views:446,644


   After several trial runs and improvements, the Simi Hill's Men's Club Tournament Handicap program is ready for implementation on October 1, 2017.  The Simi Hills Men’s Club Tournament Handicap Program (THP) will not affect or have any influence on your GHIN handicap.

    WHY:  It has been shown that some players are "Pressure Players" and seem to shoot their best when the chips are down.  The result is they seem to always be at the top of the leader board and disporportionately hit it big in the side games, honeypots and other prizes month after month.  There are dozens of reasons a player does better in tournaments opposed to the lighter fun games with your buddies on other days, perhaps accompanied by a few beverages.  The USGA Handicap system is there to level the field and if a player improves by taking lessons, dedicating himself to more practice, increasing the number of games he plays, then his handicap will start showing this improvement.

   In fact, our THP takes into account the movement of your GHIN handicap downward showing your overall improvement.  However, if a player continues to win month in and month out, and...his handicap does not move, we need to address leveling up the playing field.   After all your scores were loaded into the THP, the adjustments are relatively pretty minor.  In fact 78% of our members will have no adjustment at all.    

   A Player’s Tournament Handicap will be solely based upon scores shot in Simi Hills Men’s Club tournaments.  There are only two official “tournaments” each month, one away and one at home. to establish your tournament handicap, We will use the lowest 5 NET scores of your last ten tournament rounds if within 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 index or your Simi Hills Men’s Club Tournament Handicap for that tournament.  

   We will put up the exact math that goes into your tournament handicaps on the THP page being developed.  It is exactly as spelled out in section 10 of the USGA Handicap Manual.

    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.   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 me or Tim Crable. Tim was tasked with developing the program so if an error is seen, he is particularly interested in resolving it so he can check and make sure it is a singular incident.  

  An email will be sent when the THP page has been activated.

   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 $520 in the pool

The latest player to join the Aces Club is Barry Shepherd
* 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.
