BENEFITS

An Official Golf Canada Handicap Factor®

Golf Canada Gold members can use the Golf Canada Score Centre online, on their mobile devices and through kiosks at many facilities across the country to track their Official Handicap Factor®

Not only is an Official Golf Canada Handicap Factor a requirement to play in many provincial, national, international and domestic club events, it makes the game of golf more enjoyable by enabling golfers of differing abilities to compete on an equitable basis.

What’s your number? Your Handicap Factor helps levels the playing field and makes every round more enjoyable because of it. It also opens the door to a wide array of game formats popular throughout the world including Stableford and Match Play. Learn More…

Golf Canada members have access to the best tools to track their game through the Golf Canada Score Centre, available online, on their mobile devices and through kiosks at many facilities across the country.
