We're heading for the tail end of a great golf season and then end of the active handicap season for Massachusetts. Our active handicap season runs from April 1st - November 14th. After November 14th no local rounds are posted towards your handicap.
If you are heading to warmer climates you can continue to post your scores if the area you are going to is still in an active season (if you aren't sure what the active season is for your area take a look at the USGA's season schedule)
I'm hoping we have a beautiful New England fall that includes a few more rounds before the snow and cold!
