Monday Last Day to Post Iowa Scores this Season
The active season for posting golf scores made on Iowa courses ends tomorrow. The Iowa Golf Association has established Iowa’s active season as April 1 through October 31. Golfers who want to keep their handicap up-to-date should post scores for all rounds during the active season. Iowa rounds played November 1 through March 1 cannot be entered into the handicap system. However, if you play golf in another state that is active year-round, or has a longer active season, those scores can be posted. Find a list of active seasons by state here.
