About The Handicap Calculator

Golf handicaps allow players of differing experience and skill to play together. It makes the game fun for all players in a group.

A handicap is like a special score that helps even out the game. Let's say your handicap is 10 and your friend's is 20. This means you're better at golf, so you start the game with a score that's 10 strokes higher than normal. Your friend starts with a score that's 20 strokes higher.

So, if you both play your best, your friend would need to score 10 strokes less than you to win. It's the same as giving your slower friend a head start in a race to make it fair. In this way, handicaps allow players of different skill levels to enjoy golf together.
