What our members say

Very easy to use. Finding it very useful to group rounds on different courses to establish Golfshake index and handicap.

Golfshake is a very useful service for gaining a professional and impartial assessment of one's handicap. It is fast and reliable.

A very useful site. Golfshake allows me to track my true handicap as I mainly play non qualifying rounds due to work commitments.

As I am not a member of a golf club any more the handicap section keeps me still being competitive. All the other bits also helpful Thanks

I wanted to say how useful I find the site as a way of keeping track of my handicap. I've been playing for a number of years but hadn't ever looked to adjust the handicap I received when I was a junior playing at my first (and only!) club. Being able to input my scores is increasing my enjoyment as I'm looking to better myself every time I play.

Brilliant site. The best golf site for recreational players by a country mile. Keep it up

Golfshake Member Feedback

The Tracker is an easy and effective way of monitoring my game and adjusting my handicap accordingly.

Very easy to input scores, get updated handicap (for use with my golf society) and obtain summary stats. Appreciate the new handicap system being adopted on Golfshake. In summary, what's not to like? - so Thank You!

Very useful for keeping records of your game and giving you a handicap.

I think Golfshake is brilliant as it allows me to have a handicap without having to join a club.

Nice and easy to use, great for tracking handicap, even if I'm a very high handicap.

As a non member golf shake provides me with a valuable method of recording my scores and keeping a handicap which reflects my form.

This service is a godsend for someone like me who is a member of 4 society’s and is never going to join a club.

Official Golf Handicaps

The golf handicap provided by Golfshake is based on all rounds of golf and known as your social playing handicap which is widely recognised at courses throughout the world as proof of your playing ability.  The handicap provided by Golfshake is an excellent way to know your ability plus manage & maintain handicaps within your society or social group and allows you to play this great game on a competitive level playing field as described by the R&A:

One of the characteristic features of the game of golf is the handicapping system. A handicap allows players of all levels of golfing ability to compete against each other equally and, consequently, is essential to the popularity and prosperity of the game.

For 'Official Golf Handicaps' these can only be obtained by being a member of a golf club affiliated to the national unions and then by taking part in club competitions to maintain your 'official' handicap.  Entry into Open Golf club competitions will also likely stipulate and require 'official' handicaps which are only available to golf club members.

If you want to know your golf ability & golf handicap for proof when playing social rounds at courses that set handicap restrictions then the Golfshake handicap is widely recognised and accepted at the majority of courses around the world.  The service provided by Golfshake will track & maintain your golf handicap for free plus provide access to additional reports & analysis and additionally a golf handicap certificate, Golfshake member handicap card & society handicaps as part of our other services.
