  • Where is the Handicap Lookup located when I am logged into my account?

    Follow the steps below to locate the Handicap Lookup function:

    1. Login to our Golf Canada Score Centre
    2. Under the “At-a-Glance” tab, click on the red button named “Handicap Lookup”
    3. It can also be found in the menu bar located on the top right, beside your name and membership number.

    What information is available through the Handicap Lookup? An integral aspect of the Rules of Handicapping is Peer Review, which is the process by which a score or Handicap Index can be confirmed or challenged. For Peer Review to take place, certain scoring and Handicap Index information must be made available to other golfers (as outlined in Appendix B of the Rules of Handicapping). The golfer’s Handicap Index information is also made available through the lookup.

    The General Scoring Record is accessible by the Handicap Committee and Golf Canada members within the golf club (i.e. fellow members at the club where you hold membership). It includes information about each of the rounds played; including date (day/month/year), course/tee information and score data.

    The Condensed Scoring Record is accessible by the larger audience of Golf Canada members. The same score data is displayed, however, for data privacy reasons the exact day and the course where the round was played are omitted.

  • I am a club staff member, how can I verify a Handicap Index?

    Staff members of Golf Canada member clubs will continue to have access through their club admin account to the Handicap Lookup tool. If you are a club staff member of a Golf Canada member club, your club should already have an established admin account that would have access to all your members roster handicap details and the ability to use the handicap lookup function for members outside your club roster.

  • I am not from Canada; how can I verify the Handicap Index of a golfer playing in an international event?

    If you are not a member of Golf Canada and require the handicap index information for a desired player whether it be for event purposes or member guest access requirements, we suggest you ask the member to either provide you their World Handicap System (WHS) approved handicap card that can be found in their membership account. Alternatively, you may contact members@golfcanada.ca for these inquiries.

  • I am a Golf Canada member, playing in an event outside of Canada where a Handicap Index is required. How can I provide proof of my Handicap Index?

    As Golf Canada is the sole provider of an official Handicap Index in Canada your handicap is recognized worldwide. If an official Handicap Index is required or requested to play internationally whether recreationally or competitively, members of Golf Canada can provide their Handicap Index through the Golf Canada mobile application, email or print version of their handicap card, or contact Golf Services to provide your Handicap Index credentials. If you are a member of a golf club associated to Golf Canada, you can provide a club contact such as a staff member or handicap committee to the organizing committee and/or club. Please see below to follow instructions on how to obtain your handicap card through your member account.
