Frequently Asked Questions on Golf Handicaps

Q: What is a Golf Handicap/ Handicap Certificate?

A:  A handicap is a numerical measure of a golfer's potential playing ability based on the tees played
for a given course. It is used to calculate a net score from the number of strokes actually played during a
competition, thus allowing players of different proficiency to play against each other on somewhat equal terms.
An official handicap - one that is established through the auspices of a USGA affiliated club - is called a
"handicap index." To establish a handicap index, a golfer needs a minimum of his five most recent scores,
plus the course rating and slope rating of the courses played.

A golf handicap certificate is a document issued by a golfing association that indicates a players current
handicap.  In short, a handicap certificate is your proof that you can play golf to a certain standard.

Q: Is it necessary for me to have a Golf Handicap? I never had difficulties during my golf games.

A: It is mandatory for Golfers to have a valid Handicap to be able to play in golf courses around the world and to
take part in Amateur, Social and Corporate Tournaments. In some cases, the Golf courses may not be busy and
could have allowed you to play. But this may not be suitable for all occasions. The same Golf Course may turn
you down during peak seasons. Furthermore, In the event that you have won a Hole in One Prize or came
in as the Champion in a Golf Competition, without a valid Handicap or Golf Insurance, you are not entitled to win
 any prize.
