USGA’s Golf Handicap & Information Network

USGA GHIN

While the USGA® develops the formula used in tabulating handicaps, it does not issue them directly to individual golfers. A USGA Handicap Index is issued through licensed golf clubs (such as The Alamo City Golf Trail) that follow all the procedures of the established USGA Handicap System.
