For events, the RDUgolf Tour requires official or unofficial handicaps.
Weighted handicapping can be seen under Handicapping section of the “Event / League Structure” portion of the website
For handicaps not on GHIN or The Grint, golfers will be required to provide a screenshot of an updated handicap the week of each event
If a golfer does not provide handicap updates by Wednesday at 11:59 PM before the event, they will be entered as 0 and will not receive any strokes in the competition
Do NOT guess your handicap; make sure to utilize one of the services below:
My main suggestion is to join the Carolinas eClub through the Carolina Golf Association.
For $39, you will receive an official GHIN #, stats tracking, access to CGA events, quarterly publications, and member deals
There are numerous free golf apps which will allow you to track your rounds, stats and provide you a free handicap estimation.
These apps will require 5 rounds to generate a handicap
- The Grint
- 18 Birdies
- Diablo Golf
- many others..
An unofficial handicap can also be calculated manually via numerous different online calculators.
These will require:
- Minimum of 5 scores
- USGA Course Rating (found on scorecard
- USGA Course Slope (found on scorecard)
- 18-hole score
