# Course Handicaps set to a Max of 36
(USGA indexes will report from users GHIN record).
# in 2018 a change was made to " fix must pay 3 places Gross & Net per tee box" as this was totally inflexible with signup and resulted in exceeding 33% of field to pay.
This Sweeps report has a published Payout Schedule with minimum of 3 on the tee.
