The USGA Handicap System™ enables golfers of all skill levels to compete on an equitable basis. This section of the site will help golfers understand why having a Handicap Index® is important. There are links to "The USGA Handicap System" manual, the USGA's handicapping equivalent of "The Rules of Golf", and a Course Handicap™ calculator to allow players to convert their Handicap Index to the Course Handicap for any course that has been properly rated.

To get an official USGA Handicap you must subscribe through your local golf club or online.

However, for those of us that don't really care, Yahoo! has a great handicap tracker that's free.

As of today, I am a 13.8 What are you?
