HANDICAPPING

Announcing a new option for members and non-members both. The purpose of the USGA Handicap System is to make the game of golf more enjoyable by enabling players of differing abilities to compete on an equitable basis.

Having a handicap index allows golfers to participate in more events (those that require a handicap index), have a measureable means of tracking improvement, and allows score adjustments to even the playing field when playing with golfers of different skill levels.

By tracking your handicap, you’ll measure your potential. Each game you’ll know the score you need to shoot to lower your handicap. Comparing your statistics to your handicap, you’ll pinpoint your weakness and be able to focus to improve your game. You’ll be able to track your handicap over time, and compare your improvement with friends. If you could drop 5 strokes off your game, wouldn’t you want to do it? There is now a handicap service available through Golf Links of Florida and it is an official USGA handicap. Both 9 and 18 hole rounds can be entered in your record. You can print out and have an official USGA handicap card.

This service is through the company, My Scorecard. You can try it out for free for a trial period and then it is only a yearly fee of $14.95. To find out more and to sign up please click on the link below:  Golf Links Handicap Club
