The handicap is a number assigned to a golfer defining their proficiency. Its function is to give players of all standards an equal chance of victory. In strokeplay the handicap is taken from a player’s total gross score to give their nett score. In matchplay the handicap determines how many shots a player will either give to, or receive from, an opponent.
You need a handicap to participate in club or inter-club competitions. Some golf courses require visitors to produce a certificate confirming they are in possession of a recognised handicap.
