Golf Handicap Network

Internet Based Golf Handicap Software

Golfer Features

The Golf Handicap Network (Powered by the "Handicomp Golf Handicap System") is an easy and affordable way for everyday Golfers to maintain a Golf Handicap!

What is Your Golf Handicap?


A simple question that can't be answered with a guess.

How do I get a Golf Handicap?
Club MemberIndividual Golfer

A majority of golfers receive their Handicap by affiliating with a Golf Course; sometimes through a membership and other times with an over the counter purchase.  The cost of a Handicap through a Golf Course can be more or less than an Individual subscription; it just depends on how the Club packages the service.

Contact your local Golf Course to see if they offer Handicapping services.

The easiest way to get a Handicap is to sign up right here.  Simply click the button and you will be guided through a simple registration that costs $9.95 for an entire year (12 months) of service.
