Can we play on a course not listed for the Spokane Golf League?
No, other courses are not in the website database.

For bragging rights, of course.  Besides, each Division Champion gets $675; Finalist gets $250; Semifinalists get $175 each; and Quarterfinalists get $125 each (based on a full field).

How do I get paid?
All payouts are in the form of Spokane County Golf gift cards which may be used for future green fees, cart rentals, range balls, lessons from the pros on how to win this League next season, and pro shop merchandises at any Spokane County golf courses, not just your home course.  Our gift cards never expire.  They are distributed at the end of the season.

How much does it cost?
$85 entry fee per season plus applicable green fee.  You may use your adult/senior discount card, adult/senior/junior multi-play card, or senior season pass.  You must follow our tee time reservation policy or prebook at the posted prebook rate.

How often do we play?
One match per week.
What if I'm gone for a week?
You can schedule two matches in a week or ask your opponent for an extension.  If you cannot play, your opponent does have the option to take a default victory, but hopefully they will want to play.
Can I play an unplayed match once the playoffs start?
No and your un-played matches will be removed once the playoffs begin.

Why are there byes?
Unless there are exactly 32 or 64 players (the divisions only go to 98), there will be byes.
I see there are 4 players with byes.  Why can't they play each other?
Because the byes occur in different weeks.
Who determines which players receive byes?
Byes are randomly assigned by the program.

Can I use a range finder?
Yes as long as it only calculates distance – not weather, humidity or wind. See USGA Rule 14-3 Appendix I: Part B Section 9.

How do I schedule my matches?
Contact your opponent through the League message system.
What if my opponent does not reply to the League messages?
Contact the League administrator at and he will contact your opponent.

Do I post net or gross scores online?
You post gross and the website will make the calculations.

I see on TV match play when someone wins, they stop playing.  Should we stop playing?
No. Keep playing so you can post your scores.

Can I post Spokane Golf League matches as a tournament?
Yes you can.

How are course handicaps calculated?
We use the USGA formula - your handicap index multiplied by slope, divided by 113, and rounded to the nearest whole number.
For example, a 5.7 handicap playing a course with a slope of 131 would have a 7 handicap for that course ((5.7 x 131)/113 = 6.608; rounded to nearest whole number).

Which tee do I play from?
Men play from white; 65 or over can play from gold.
Ladies can play from red.
