Current members can rest assured that score histories will remain unchanged and transfer directly to the new USGA Handicap Index. Current members will also be allowed a five-score grace period before being required to convert to the new USGA licensed clubs. To continue tracking a USGA Handicap Index and using our services beyond the fifth score entry, users can simply purchase a DiabloGolf Membership for $14.99 a year.
Going forward, our Recreational Handicap will no longer be offered. It is the USGA’s decision that Recreational Handicaps not be offered with our USGA Conforming Golf Clubs.
Below is the offical statement.
The USGA and XYZ Media, Inc., the owner of DiabloGolf (http://www.diablogolf.com), have amicably resolved a lawsuit and beginning in March 2013, DiabloGolf will be creating Type 3 Internet-based golf clubs (as defined in the USGA Handicap System Manual) with the ability to issue a USGA Handicap Index to qualifying club members. Qualifying club members may use a valid Handicap Index in the manner set forth in the USGA Handicap System Manual.
