Competition is widespread at Merchantville Country Club. As a standard practice to better the quality of said competition, MCC holds memberships in both regional and national golf associations. These groups, the Golf Association of Philadelphia (GAP), the South Jersey Golf Association, and the United States Golf Association (USGA) allow MCC to access handicapping systems, golf leagues and multiple networks of information pertaining to the game.
As a member of the USGA, MCC follows USGA rules and participates in the USGA Handicap System. This universal system assigns each player a handicap number based upon average scores entered into our handicap computer, located in the golf shop. The aim is to afford each competitor an equal chance of winning, regardless of skill level. Effectiveness of this system is dependent upon Member compliance in posting all scores. To post your score or establish a handicap, visit the golf shop, where our staff members can assist you.
