Gaining a Handicap at BGC

Being a member of BGC also offers you the chance to gain an official USGA handicap that you can transfer to other clubs or use when visiting other courses.

When you first join BGC, if you have an officially-recognised handicap from another club then just give Rainbow the details and this will transfer over to BGC and let you start playing handicap golf in Beijing immediately.

But don’t worry if you don’t have a handicap or are new to the game – as per the USGA rules, once you’ve played five rounds with BGC you’ll be assigned a handicap – then the more you play the more accurate your handicap will become.

For further information just check out this article about gaining an official USGA handicap – www.liveabout.com/establishing-a-handicap-1561059

If you have any further questions just contact Rainbow or ask a member of the BGC Committee.
