Handicap Information

Whether competing in an event at your club or in a VSGA one-day tournament, you must have a VSGA/USGA Handicap Index. Since VSGA handicaps are recognized as “USGA handicaps,” they are generally accepted throughout the Commonwealth by tournament organizers.

The purpose of the USGA Handicap System is to make the game of golf  more enjoyable by enabling golfers of different abilities the chance to compete on an equal basis. The system also adjusts a golfer’s Handicap Index up or down as one’s game changes.
