Three months ago, Golf Pad has its Android version (15.5.1)  with World Handicap System support. This month, we've released iPhone version (13.12) with World Handicap System support. Golf Pad will calculate both playing handicap for each round and handicap index from playing history. Users select the preferred handicap system in Golf Pad preferences.

Hi Robert - to answer your question: How many rounds does Golf Pad need to be able to calculate a handicap?

For EGA: just one round is needed

For WHS, CONGU and Golf Australia: 3 rounds are needed

For SAGA: 5 rounds are needed

For rounds to be used in handicap calculation, the tee must be selected and the rounds need to be completed and saved to your playing history. You can tap the DETAILS button (Android) or the arrow (iPhone) next to computed handicap to see what rounds were included in handicap calculation.

I have played four 9 hole rounds of golf.    Is it too soon to have a handicap and which Handicap System is recommended for a beginner?

Thanks for your comment. While the team looks into this, I wanted to share this information about WHS calculations: What parts of World Handicap System are supported in Golf Pad?

This may help better understand how WHS is calculated. It's possible the miscalculation is due to having only a few rounds played so far. We will email you after we look more closely at the details you sent.

I only have played six rounds so I don't know if that is the issue. WHSA calculates my "Handicap auto value" at +59.1! Please refer to the attached file. Note the differentials on rounds played 5/21, 5/20, and 5/18 compared to the other three, same course, same tees, same course ratings.

I like the concept but it isn't working properly. Support ticket #89060 already submitted.
