IMPORTANT INFORMATION ON THE WORLD HANDICAP SYSTEM
We have been communicating weekly with regard to the coming changes in the handicap system, as administered by the USGA. Based on current information here are some important points for you to know as we move into 2020. 

• Your last GHIN update will take place on 12-15-2019. 

• You should continue posting all eligible scores through 12-31-2019. -For play between 1-1 and 1-6 we recommend using your (12-15/12-31trend?) handicap. 

• The GHIN system will go dark from 12-31-2019 until 1-6 2020 to allow for the necessary software updates. We will make arrangements to manually keep scores during this period and record those scores once GHIN is live again. 

• In 2020 handicaps will be adjusted every time you post a score, making it very important that you post every eligible score the day that you play.

• As communicated previously our recording of posting scores needs improvement. Both Women and Men have the majority of their players currently posting scores for less than 75% of their rounds. 

• One of the 12-7 Men’s Day winners has posted only 23% of their rounds. 

• In an effort to ensure equitable competitions we had previously communicated our intent to limit eligibility to win prizes to those members who have posted at least 75% of their scores, effective 1-1-2020.

• In light of everything going on with changes to the handicap system, we are delaying implementation of this policy until March 1. We will be reporting the posting percentages of winning members during January and February and working with anyone who is below 75% to understand why they are not posting their scores 

• Some members have been using the USGA GHIN app to post scores. That app will not work after 12-31-2019, a new USGA GHIN mobile app is scheduled to be available for downloading on 1-6-2020. 

Obviously there is a lot going on with handicaps and you can anticipate future updates. Please contact members of our golf professional staff or members of the handicap committee should you have questions. 

Happy New Year, Fairways and Greens!

Purple Gallinule
bow12-23.jpgOnce you've seen a Purple Gallinule you can better understand why its black and white cousin with the red bill is called a Common Gallinule. This gem of marshlands is readily identified by its yellow legs and feet, a blue/purple neck and breast, and solid white feathers under the tail area. As it walks, it constantly and rapidly flicks it tail thus revealing the white "behind." In places like Corkscrew Sanctuary Swamp, Purple Gallinules can be seen walking over the floating water lettuce where they pick up small frogs, snails, aquatic insects, and seeds from marsh plants. Here at Windstar, resident Walter Degnan captured this adult Purple Gallinule in the dense vegetation alongside the pond on the back side of the green on # 1. Happy Holidays to all you Windstar "naturalists." Please join us for a bird walk in the New Year. We never know what surprises Mother Nature has in store for us.
