Does Golf Pad support handicap scoring? What systems are supported?

Modified on Mon, 15 Apr 2024 at 03:25 PM

Yes, handicap (net) scoring is supported in Golf Pad for both Android and iOS using the World Handicap System (WHS). This is one of Premium features

Golf Pad supports World Handicap System (WHS) on Android starting with version 15.5 and iPhone starting with version 13.12. 

When playing a round, Golf Pad will:

- Assign handicap strokes according to hole handicaps. Strokes are shown as dots in scorecard.

- Compute and display gross and net totals for each nine and for the full round.

- Handicap scoring is supported for all scoring modes, including Strokeplay, Stableford, Matchplay, Skins and more. 

You can manually specify your handicap index, enter USGA® Handicap Index® (available for the USA and Mexico) or use Golf Pad's Ability Estimate (see below). 

When you using GAE, Golf Pad will analyze the Golf Pad community scores, courses played, and tee selection. Your personalized Ability Estimate will be based on the best and recent rounds from your scoring history, compared against the Golf Pad community average scores. 

You can always review additional information by tapping DETAILS next to the Handicap value in Golf Pad preferences / user profile.
