To get the best understanding of what it means to play according to your Handicap Index®, it helps to know what score you should aim for on a specific course.

Put your Handicap Index® and the course’s slope rating into the Course Handicap Calculator. You can find the course’s slope and rating for your tee box on the scorecard in your Golfshot app.

Add the Course Handicap to the USGA® Course Rating (also found on the scorecard in your Golfshot app) to get your Target Score. That’s the score you should try to aim for to play your best golf.
