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:

Official Handicap

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

Unofficial Handicap
(via app)

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

Suggested apps:

  • The Grint
  • 18 Birdies
  • Diablo Golf
  • many others..

Unofficial Handicap
(manual calculation)

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
