Welcome to Golf Digest Handicap, an easy tool that calculates your handicap based on your scoring history - all for free!

Why get a handicap?

It helps you track your progress from one round to the next; it allows golfers of all skill levels to compete against one another fairly; and it's a way to determine where your game needs the most help. (This isn't an official USGA handicap, but a free and easy point of entry. For an official handicap, go to usga.org.)

Getting started is easy.
