A Course Handicap is the number of handicap strokes a player receives from a particular set of tees at the course being played.
To convert a Handicap Index to a Course Handicap, a player takes the Handicap Index to a Course Handicap Table to find the corresponding Course Handicap. Each set of rated tees will have a different Course Handicap Table for men and women based on their Slope Rating. It is the player's responsibility to determine the correct Course Handicap, and to know the holes at which handicap strokes are to be given or received.
The Course Handicap Table is designed to determine a Course Handicap. It is for use only with the USGA Handicap System by an authorized golf association and a golf club that has a valid USGA Course Rating and Slope Rating.
Course Handicap Tables are provided to each member club in the spring.
