## How Do I Calculate My Handicap Index?

If you are interested to know exactly how to calculate golf handicaps then below we have the exact calculations that our easy handicap calculator uses.

USGA Index Calculation Step 1:
(Score – USGA Course Rating) x 113 (this is the average slope rating of a golf course)/ Slope Rating = x

Using the figures in the above calculator example that would be:
(100 – 72.9) x 113 / 128 = 23.92

This result is defined as the ‘handicap differential’. When calculating a golf handicap it is essential to include a minimum of five handicap differentials and a maximum of twenty from your most recent scores from a 9 hole or 18 holes round. If you are using five handicap differentials to calculate your golf handicap then you would use the lowest one for the final calculation.

USGA Index Calculation Step 2: The final calculation is to multiply your differential by 0.96.

E.g. 23.92 x 0.96 meaning that the handicap index would be 22.9.
