Short Course Single Round Golf Handicap Calculator

This calculator requires the use of Javascript enabled and capable browsers. This calculator is designed to give a USGA designated short course golf handicap, based on only one round of golf. This is ONLY a method of arriving at a handicap. Though based on USGA formulae for handicap calculations as of 2002 for short courses, a truer representation is determined from a larger number of scores. (See our standard short course golf handicap calculator.) In the calculator below, enter your score. Also, enter the course rating which can be determined from the scorecard information. Click on Calculate and the one round handicap will be determined. We also calculate the Index handicap and a USGA approved round down method is used to determine the factored handicap. Any fractional portion is rounded down to the previous whole number. If you wish to do the entire calculation again, without the entries you have entered, click on Clear Values. This calculator is for personal information only and may not be acceptable as a legal USGA handicap for a given event.

The USGA designates a short course as one under 3,000 yards. They are often termed different names, such as Par 3, Executive, Mini-Course, Fast-Play and others. Such courses do NOT get a slope rating and the handicaps are not portable. The formula for these calculations is identical to the USGA formula; however, these five different handicap values cover the majority of handicapping calculations worldwide for such courses. The differential is your score less the course rating. The USGA does not endorse this calculator or any other, other than their own.
