What is a course handicap and how do I calculate it?

A player’s course handicap refers to the number of strokes they receive based on their Handicap Index on a specific set of tees at a specific course. You can calculate your course handicap by:

  • Using the NCGA “Course Handicap Tables” located at each course in our region
  • Using the free NCGA mobile app
  • Inputting the course information to the USGA Course Handicap Calculator
