In all countries, the crucial issue of handicapping is the responsibility of the national golf Association, Federation or Union. ( The USGA is unique in that it also sets the Rules of Golf in its own country ). This diversity has resulted in six different systems covering the world. Whichever system is used, the main question is this : does it operate for the benefit of all golfers? We need to get a much better feel from golfers – in as many countries as possible – about how you think your handicapping system should be organised. And the REAL golf survey is the mechanism to do that.
