I started playing The Golf Club and am trying to join the TGC Amateur Tour but it shows locked. Says handicap requirements are between 1 - 38. My handicap is is 4.5?  Is there a reason I can't join it? If so why isn't the error message telling me why?

Is your handicap 4.5  or  -4.5?   If it is 4.5, maybe try fully shutting down your XB1 by holding the power down for 7 seconds or so until your hear it fully shutdown including the fans.  That will clear the cache.

Actually my handicap is +10.6 now but same issue before the xbox one dashboard update. Right now I can't play season / tournament at all.

1-38 is a handicap given to a much worse player than a PLUS handicap.  You are a PLUS 10.6 so you are way too good to qualify for the Amateur  Tour.

38 is the highest handicap you can have. As you get better, your handicap gets lower towards zero.  As you continue to improve even more, your handicap then goes under zero or what's called a PLUS handicap.
