Yes, the site will track your golf handicap, although at present the golf handicapping system only tracks UK and US golf handicaps. EGA, AGU and other country golf handicap tracking will be added soon!
Do you provide a golf certificate ?
The golfshake.com system provides a free online golf handicap certificate for all our accounts. Premium and Platinum Account members have a full online handicap certificate as well as a printable .pdf version. Free Standard Account members only have a very basic online handicap certificate. The golf certificate can also be set to allow anyone to see your current golf handicap and golf certificate online.
Is the golf handicap an official golf handicap ?
The golfshake.com handicap and handicap certificate is a recognised handicap that is accepted and recognised at golf courses worldwide. We are, at present, unable to formally call our golf handicap an official handicap as currently official handicaps can only be issued by golf clubs to their club members. However golfshake.com have never received any reported cases of anyone who has been refused permission to play a golf course after having shown a golfshake.com Handicap. If you are in any doubt, simply check with the club before you travel or book tee times by emailing, faxing or posting them a copy of your handicap certificate. Please click here to see the courses we currently know will or will not accept the handicap card.
How do I show my golf handicap to a golf club, event organiser or friends in advance of playing?
You can very easily present your handicap to clubs, event organisers and friends in advance of play by setting your Handicap Security to Public via your Profile Settings and emailing them a web link to your Handicap Certificate page. Alternatively you can download the .pdf version of your handicap certificate from the Handicap page and email or print and post/fax it to the club.
I am playing in a Club Open Championship. Will my golf handicap be accepted?
If you are playing in a golf club’s open championship, as a matter of course, you should always check with the club before you enter that it accepts your golfshake.com Handicap for the competition. This is because some golf clubs may only accept handicap certificates issued by other golf clubs to club members for their Open Championships.
Do you work out golf points for rounds played ?
Yes, we use the British stableford points scoring system to calculate golf points played for each of your rounds. The feature is also used for the golf competitions.

Will your golf system cope with my golf society ?
Yes, you can create a golf society/group to store all your golf society's competitions and track golf player performance, golf competitions and your own society leaderboard, as well as post your group news, pictures, results and chat! Please visit the site Tour here for further help.
Can I track rounds with my friends ?
Yes, you can either create a golf competition and enter rounds for you and your golf buddies, or create your own golf society or golf group and track and compare rounds.
