USGA to GA (Golf Australia) Handicap

Hi all,

Have recently moved from San Diego to Perth, Western Australia (missing Torrey baaaad   🙂 )  Maintained a USGA handicap for a number of years over there - is there any way to convert that to a GA handicap or do I need to 'start' again with 3 cards?

Cheers, Ben

Check on Page 22 here:

I didn't read it in great detail, but it looks like you can "import" scores from your USGA handicap record.

Thanks Dave, much appreciated.  Not quite sure what you're seeing on page 22 but I can see mention of "recognised overseas equivalent" handicap which sounds like it should put me on the right track.

Cheers, Ben

That's what I was seeing, that paragraph makes it seem as if at least part of your score history could be used.  If I remember right, GA handicaps are based much more on competition scores than the USGA system requires, so they may not want to take ALL of your scores, but at least its a start.  Enjoy what's left of your summer!
