The Handicap System
The Barbados Golf Association uses the USGA Handicap System™. This enables golfers of all skill levels to compete on an equitable basis. To find out more about the handicap system, please visit The USGA Handicap Manual.
The handicap manual will help golfers understand why having a Handicap Index® is important. There are links to the USGA's handicapping equivalent of "The Rules of Golf", and a Course Handicap™ calculator to allow players to convert their Handicap Index to the Course Handicap for any course that has been properly rated.
