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

Modified on Wed, 26 Jul 2023 at 02:48 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:

- Compute your playing handicap according to WHS rules.

- 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 or use Golf Pad's built-in estimate calculator (see below). We are investigating a way to automatically lookup handicap index based on member number (such as GHIN number). Once the feature becomes available, we'll publish an announcement to Golf Pad community. 

When you using estimate calculator, Golf Pad will analyze your playing history, pick the best rounds, combine 9 hole rounds to make 18 hole rounds as necessary, and calculate the estimate.

You can always review additional information for all rounds by tapping DETAILS next to the computed estimate in Golf Pad preferences / user profile. 

Estimate is recalculated immediately after an eligible round is added.
