While Golf Pad is not an official registered golf club for handicapping purposes, it includes a handicap calculator feature for USGA, EGA, CONGU, SAGA and Golf Australia systems. World Handicap System (WHS) is supported on Android starting with version 15.5 and iPhone starting with version 13.12.

In order to use handicap calculator:

  • start Golf Pad
  • go to Preferences
  • click on "User Profile" tab
  • scroll down and find "Handicap"
  • select Gender
  • change the handicap source from "Enter manually" to "Compute from playing history"

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.
