In the past we have had numerous inquiries about handicapping and this is something that Golfaround does not do at this point in time. I can recommend the Public Players Club as it is for golfers who are unaffiliated with a golf club and is available to people that would like a handicap. A handicap is required if you choose to enter AGA tournaments and events held at other golf clubs. For more information check out the Golf Canada website
The Play Golf Alberta Public Player’s Club is a “virtual” member golf club of Alberta Golf/Golf . It is just like any other club except it is not attached to a physical golf course and members typically play golf at public play facilities. The fee to join the vClub is $49.95 and is valid for one year from the date of purchase. Public Player vClub members can record acceptable scores, view their scoring records and maintain an official Golf Canada Handicap Factor from any computer that has internet access anywhere in the world. Members can also view the scoring records of any other vClub member, as well as the records of other Alberta Golf and Golf Canada members who are using the Golf Canada Score Centre as part of the peer review process.
In addition to recording and viewing scores on the Network, members have a secure communication program, game track abilities, information on clubs across North America and an event calendar that includes leagues and tournaments.
