Rule 1 covers the fundamentals of handicapping, including:
Rule 1.4b requires a player who is a member of more than one golf club to designate one golf club as their home club.
A player should decide which golf club to designate as their home club based on one or more of the following criteria:
Should a player’s primary residence change on a regular basis such that different golf clubs satisfy the above criteria at different times of the year, the player should consider changing their home club accordingly.
Players must not designate a home club for the purpose of obtaining a Handicap Index that could give them an unfair advantage.
