We've included a handicap calculation feature for USGA, EGA and CONGU rounds. In order to use it:

  • start a round
  • click on your name under the 'golfers' tab
  • click on your name 
  • click on your handicap
  • click on the 'handicap index' tab
  • change from 'enter manually' to 'compute from playing history'


A common question is: How many rounds does Golf Pad need to be able to calculate a handicap?


For USGA courses: 10 rounds are needed

For CONGU and EGA: 5 rounds are needed


For rounds to be used in handicap calculation, the tee played from must be selected and the rounds need to be completed and saved to your playing history.
